93 out of 100. Incorporating 400+ ratings and reviews.

Gearank Recommendation

The ELX200-18SP first appeared on our recommended list for PA Subwoofers for 1 edition from November 2019 until October 2020 when it was out-ranked by other subs.

Then in November 2021 it had high enough ratings to go back on the list where it remained for another edition until October 2022.


Subwoofers usually need enough mass to handle low frequencies without rattling. Proper tuning can make subs clearer and more efficient.

The ELX200-18SP from Electro-Voice has enough punch in it to rival even larger enclosures thanks to its tuned enclosure and high peak wattage.

To reign in all this power the ELX200-18SP employs a DSP (Digital Signal Processing) system to ensure that the sub pairs nicely with most powered speaker setups.

It also has useful presets for whatever occasion you might need.
