Electro-Voice Adds Bluetooth Audio Streaming to Its ZLX Best-Selling Speaker Family

September 25 2018, 00:25
Yes. Wireless convenience is now highly recognized even by professionals for some applications. That's why Electro-Voice decided to combine the sound quality of its popular ZLX powered PA speakers - ZLX-12BT and ZLX-15BT - and build on its feature set by adding Bluetooth audio streaming. This means the Electro-Voice ZLX series now also includes two new models, the ZLX-12BT (12-inch 2-way) and ZLX-15BT (15-inch 2-way), both Bluetooth-equipped for audio streaming from any mobile device.

"The two BT models combine the superior components, coverage and clarity of the standard ZLX models with the latest Bluetooth technology to deliver the lowest-noise, highest-fidelity streaming experience in their class. Perfect for music playback or accompaniment, the ZLX-12BT and ZLX-15BT also offer the same features that have made the standard ZLX models the global benchmark for lightweight, high-performance portable sound," states the company, part of the pro audio family of brands owned by Bosch Security Systems.

Those features include QuickSmart DSP processing built-in, allowing for easy setup via four presets, sub/top system-match, two-band EQ, five user-programmable presets, visual monitoring of limiter status, input level control and meters, and master volume control to optimize gain structure — all via a single-knob controller with LCD. Both models feature the same high-efficiency 1000 W Class-D power amplifiers, delivering up to 127 dB peak SPL utilizing transducers designed and engineered by EV and use EV-patented Signal Synchronized Transducers (SST) with its waveguide design to provide consistent coverage with minimal distortion, and maximized acoustical loading.

The ZLX series uses a three-handle design integrated into a rugged composite enclosure for an optimal combination of portability and durability. The new Bluetooth-equipped models will be available in selected countries.
