Confirmed Purchase
Nice, tight sound in a compact but sturdy cab

I previously owned an Alto TS 15 Sub (which was no slouch for the price!) but, having recently invested in EV powered tops, I needed a corresponding sub. The EKX15SP was my choice. Firstly, for a sub in this class, it's ridiculously compact and light, but at the same time feels very solidly built. The DSP functions well, but to be honest I like the old-fashioned 'blinking' limit lights, which I find are much more visible than having to work out what's going on from a tiny LCD screen. I feel that this cab limits a little early, but according to EV themselves this is just cautionary, with the unit being able to go a fair way further before actually limiting. It certainly doesn't distort when you hit 'limit', which the Alto did, even before the 'limit' light came on. Sound is very good - while not much louder per se than the old Alto, the bass feels and sounds much nicer, and the EKX15SP certainly gives a more balanced output. It seems to have much more 'throw', with the bass being felt and heard some distance away. One thing I have noticed is the bass immediately behind the unit (where the DJ would typically stand) - it's ridiculous, and I can't help but feel that this sub would do better if it were to push this excess forward, rather than backward (although to be fair, almost all subs behave in this way). Luckily, the EKX15SP comes with a cardioid option, however you do need two or more subs for this to work. Overall, this is a great sub for the price, but I recommend it be used with EV tops (ELX or EKX series) for the best quality sound. I use it with two ELX112p (which it can be matched specifically to via the DSP) and the crossover does an awesome job, really bringing the best out of the tops. Not saying it won't be effective with other branded tops, but it works incredibly well with native gear. I'll be getting another EKX15SP in due course, which is indicative of my opinion of them. Incidentally, I did demo the EKX18SP at BPM this year alongside, and although 'boomier', the response just didn't feel as tight. Still, the 18" version I'm sure is a fantastic sub too, however it was just a fraction too big for my requirements.
