First stop on the Live X launch world tour is the Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, California, where the series will make its debut prior to international dates at the ISE show in Amsterdam, Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt, and major events in the APR region.
“competitively priced and suited for a wide range of applications”
Comprising three powered and four passive models, Live X sets new standards for portable sound, with the latest Electro-Voice-engineered components; lightweight, durable plywood cabinets; best-in-class SPL output, power-handling, and frequency response; and clean, stackable designs – all at a price point previously unheard-of for loudspeakers of a similar pedigree.
Live X – Powered
Three versatile powered Live X cabinets are available: two full-range loudspeakers and a matching subwoofer. Each self-contained powered system features Electro-Voice-engineered components optimized for use with the integrated high-efficiency 1000-W and 700-W Class-D amplifiers. Both full-range systems may be pole-mounted or stacked with the series’ acoustically-matched powered subwoofer.
ELX112P – 12” two-way (1000-W amplifier module)
ELX115P – 15” two-way (1000-W amplifier module)
ELX118P – 18” subwoofer (700-W amplifier module)
Live X – Passive
The Live X family also features four passive configurations, including a formidable dual-15” system. These systems may be used with a wide range of amplifiers, due to their exceptionally efficient design and power handling capabilities.
