One look at this passive speaker and you'll notice the difference, the tweeter and woofer have dedicated baffles. According to the company, this is designed to ensure that the sound coming from the two drivers are properly synchronized, resulting in a fuller and clearer sound for the one using the monitor.

With a peak power of 2000W and 15" LF Driver, this monitor is meant for handling louder mixes, including those with more bass.

  • Peak Power: 2000W

Pros

Reviews are consistent in stating that this monitor has a crisp and clean sound, and some reviewers add that it won against more popular brands when they compared sound quality in actual live performance scenarios. The standout appeal of the exterior was also commended, along with its sturdy design.

Cons

Of the few complaints it received, the price tag gets the most comment, because it is priced quite steep for a stage monitor. But considering its reliability and sound quality, many feel that their investment for the TX1152FM is justified.

Overall

If you have the budget, and you are looking for a full sounding passive stage monitor for your setup, then check out the EV TX1152FM.

In fact this was one our recommended list until December 2017 and the only reason it was removed is because we reduced the price range to a maximum of $500 that we covered in our updated guide to The Best Stage Monitors.
