The new Live X series of portable powered and passive loudspeakers is certain to send tremors throughout the global musical instrument retail marketplace, bringing world-tour-proven Electro-Voice audio performance within reach of a wider range of customers than ever before.

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.

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.
