Ok guys, haven't posted a review in a while so I thought I would get in a partial review really quick tonight. Electro-voice ZLX-12p review and comparison the SXA360. This was done in a controlled environment not in a live setting. ZLX-12p | SXA360 ______________________ First audible frequency at 50 feet at unity input levels 46hz | 32HZ random frequencies selected 50 feet on axis. 100hz 84.3db 85.7db 500hz 89.1db 90.6db 1.8khz 86.5db 87.2db max spl taken at 50 feet with signal sweep 50hz to 10khz 101.5db 102.8db Ok, lets talk about features and perception. First of all, I like the look and setup of the ZLX better. They are both about the same weight. pole mount is centered on axis of the speaker of the ZLX. (i hated the off axis setup of the SX series). The handles on the ZLX make it a true winner for ascetics and mobile use and mounting although I do not like the only side handle on the left side of the speaker, because I am right handed and its easier to pole mount a speaker with the handle on the right IMO. The grill and hardware of the ZLX appear to be superior in build quality to the SX, HOWEVER the ABS plastic cabinet of the SXA360 is far more dense and stronger I believe then the composite build of the ZLX. In fact I was surprised to find the amount of "cabinet flex" as I like to call it in the ZLX. It is known that anytime the cabinet in a speaker system "moves" you loose efficiency of the structure, therefore output. I give the build quality of the SXA360 cabinet a much better rating. The LED on the front of the ZLX and the fact that you can turn it off or select it for use as a limit indicator makes the look of the cabinet and functionality better compared to the SXA360. The ZLX cabinets cannot be stacked on a vertical plane. So don't plan on using them in multiples in stacks. The sx series you could and there is a reason for that I will get to in a little bit. However, note that if one wanted to turn the ZLX cabinets on their side (not in the 50 degree monitor position) but truly on its side that you can actually stack them on a horizontal plane almost like a line array. Overall sound perception wise, I still like the SXA360 better. The stats show better performance too. HOWEVER, let it be known that off axis the ZLX shined a bit better because of the wider dispersion. (90 degrees compared to the 65 of the SX series). The ZLX sounded MUCH more harsh driven into clipping. The amount of processing and DSP on the ZLX would have led me to believe that it would have done a better job controlling the intentional overloading. But it did not. That takes me to the DSP on the ZLX (this is the first thing most people talk about). It gives you a wide range of setup options and I am not going to highlight them now because you can watch any youtube video and see this over and over again. However the ZLX wins in terms of functionality for DJ's and small live performances because of the DSP and input options. As well as a larger horizontal coverage. two 1/4 xlr combo jacks and a 3.5mm stereo in. Then you have independent control over each input AND a system volume control too. A built in mixer. NOW for the SXA360, this wins for bigger and larger setups for multiple reasons. It's constant 65x65 degree dispersion making use in multiples and arrays far better. It also only has one input. However, since you cannot buy the sxa360 anymore I am choosing to not give a ton of info on that. My purpose was to compare EV apples to apples from generation to generation of speakers. Something not many have done. The other thing to keep in mind. Price point. I could buy two of the ZLX cabinets per one of the SXA's. So that makes it an overall winner hands down. The price point is amazing for what you get. I hope this helps folks. Please shoot me any questions you might have.
