I was considering the EV ELX 118 as my next passive subs. I plan to power them with a QSC GX7 amp. Here's specs. to make it easy for anyone who wants to analyze things before giving input.I use Peavey PV118 subs right now powered by QSC GX5, and am hoping that the EVs will be louder, and better.
Power - 800w peak
Max SPL 118dB

GX series GX5 and GX7 amp specs are here:
I was also wondering if it would be not much difference in the sub if I just got the GX7 and kept the Peaveys, or if it would be a noticeable difference to get the EV sub using the GX7... or... get the EV sub and just keep the GX5 to power it and remain the same with the tops running off of my RMX1450.
If there are other choices that I have not considered, I'm all ears.
I'm just not hip to powered speakers. I'll just leave it at that.
I want to stay around $500 or less each for the subs. The EVs seem pretty light, and are a name I trust. Plus I use EV tops.
I really cant think of a better value in an amp for my needs since the QSC GX7 is 725w @ 16.5 lbs.
