The Electro-Voice ZX1 is the new standard of no compromise audio performance and versatility for compact sound reinforcement.

The high-tech enclosure uses injection-molded high-impact polypropylene to make the ZX1 extremely durable. The enclosure geometry has been engineered to provide maximum rigidity and acoustic performance. The velocity compensated port design overcomes the limitation of many small loudspeakers and enables exceptional low frequency response without vent noise.

The ZX1's long excursion, high output 8" woofer with a weatherized treated cone delivers smooth low frequency performance with exceptional reliability. A sophisticated crossover network integrates it with the DH2005, a 1.25 voice coil titanium diaphragm true compression driver for maximum output with extended frequency response. Full-bandwidth overload protection is provided for reliable, long term operation without audible effect.

The horn features 90 x 50 degree coverage with the important added benefit of rotation, allowing the ZX1 to be oriented either horizontally or vertically for the ultimate in coverage flexibility.

The ZX1's molded polymer enclosure is inherently water resistant. The enclosure features an integrated pole mount, a pocket handle, and a wedge-angle design allowing for use as a stage monitor.

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreMarkham, Ontario
I bought two of these about 3 or 4 years ago for my small venue acoustic gigs. I was blown away by how great they sounded. My acoustic guitar sounds great through them as well as my vocals. I was so pleased with them that I bought 2 of the ZLX 12 speakers as well for my larger venues. The ZLX 12's are good but don't sound as good as the ZX1-90. The ZX1-90 have a much better acoustic response. I intend on getting two more of these, and run all four for any larger venues in the future. They also make awesome monitors. I only gave them a 4.5 overall instead of 5 because they are a bit pricey, but they are worth spending the extra $ for the quality sound!
