With its 15" LF Driver, this speaker is more than capable of handling heavy bass, while the 1.25" titanium compression driver ensures that you're not compromising top end.

To be able to handle jolts of heavy bass, it has a high peak capacity of 2000W, and a max SPL (sound pressure level) of 133dB.

Other nifty features include dent resistant grilles, four way handles and rotating logo.

Pros

Mentioning that this speaker sounds really good and that it can get loud, is a common theme among the written reviews. Some users describe it as having similar sonic definition to studio monitors, and there was one who even compared it to expensive QSC speakers with satisfactory results.

Cons

There were some who expressed concern over the bulk and weight of the speaker, along with the exposed side grilles which can be hit from time to time. They are however willing to look over these minor qualms for the overall performance of the TX1152.

Overall

The Electro-Voice TX1152 15 was on our recommended list until October 2019 when we conducted a major review of the category and found there were more highly rated options to recommend, such as the JBL PRX425 which you'll find in our guide to The Best Passive PA Speakers.
