At the heart of Electro-Voice’s ZXA5 powered two-way loudspeaker are state-of-the-art transducers. To develop the DVX3150 15-inch high-performance transducer, the company used advanced computer-aided design techniques to create forced-air, directional voice coil cooling for high power and efficiency. Finite element analysis was used to optimize the suspension and magnetic structure for long, linear travel, providing low distortion and greater LF extension.
Handling the HF is the ND2, a 2-inch voice coil compression driver based on a neodymium motor structure that allows maximum output while keeping size and weight to a minimum. The ND2’s precision-phasing plug and titanium diaphragm provide better HF performance, while the integral heat sink provides cooling for high power output.
The ZXA5 features an integrated high-output, lightweight digital amplifier that produces 1,000W LF and 250W HF. The very low-noise design includes a 24dB/octave, 100Hz highpass filter for use with a sub.
The ZXA5’s enclosure uses injection-molded, high-impact polypropylene structural foam. The enclosure geometry elements have been carefully designed to provide maximum rigidity and bass response. By design, the ZXA5 is also a perfect solution for stage monitors, allowing two angles (45 or 55-degrees) with no additional accessories.
The ZXA5 is equipped with three anchor plates for rigging with single stud fittings, along with two more possible anchor-plate attachment points on the bottom. For permanent suspension or attaching brackets, the ZXA5 also has two M8 inserts on the top and bottom, two under the handle and four on the back of the enclosure, for a total of 10. All versions are available in black or white.
