After staying away from owning any PA gear, I am considering putting together a decent basic system. I have used several digital boards (Behringer X16, Soundcraft Ui16 and Mackie DL16) so I am somewhat familiar with boards, but not an expert by any means. But I'm here to ask about mains/subs, specifically about EV gear. I have a good inside deal opportunity with EV gear and am wondering what your opinion on the ZLX, ELX200 and EKX brand lines are. I did run an EKX based small system (12" 2 way mains and a 15" Sub) a few years ago and was pretty impressed. I can either go low end of the product range: 2 x ZLX12P + EXL12SP (sub) or ...... I can go mid range with: 2 x EKX12P + EKX15SP I'd save some $$ with the ZLX/ELX system, but the EKX is still in my budget. I'm aware of QSC and JBL PRX gear but have no inside deal opportunity. My PA needs have been covered reasonably well with a borrowed Alto (12" mains) + Behringer 18" sub, so I feel like the EV gear would be a definite step up from that. So TB Live Sound forum, what advice can you offer here about the various levels of EV gear, ZLX, ELX200, EKX (and ETX for that matter, but I think thats out of my budget even with my inside deal).
