Electro-Voice ZLX-15P 15" Powered PA Speaker - 1000W (Discontinued)
The Electro-Voice ZLX-15P gives you quality sound reinforcement with more oomph at a reasonable price point.
Its 15" woofer is paired with a 1.5" high frequency titanium compression driver and 500 Watt (Continuous RMS) Bi-amplifier.
Combining all this together makes for a bulky and heavy speaker at 38 lbs, but it is an expected inconvenience that many DJs and electronic musicians are willing to accept.
DSP features are available, including mode and location presets, limiter and built-in EQ.

More and more users add to the ZLX-15P's ever growing list of satisfied customers, most of them stating that it is a great value loud speaker, especially for those who need more bottom end, without having to resort to a subwoofer. And it's not just DJs and EDM musicians, because it also got a lot of thumbs up from bands and even singing groups.
One of the few concerns about this speaker is its lack of output volume (max SPL of just 127dB), especially when considering its size. There are some who comment that the limiter is probably protecting the speaker too much, resulting in actual output reduction at times.
If you're looking for an affordable speaker that reproduces good low end for small venues, then you'll want to consider this one.
