Operating/Use
1. The EVP-X12P,X15P,X215P feature 2 x combined jack and XLR inputs.The two stereo inputs are mixed down to mono
enabling the connection of stereo output products.
2. Connect the provided power cable to the IEC mains connector on rear of cabinet.
3 Connect the signal cable (balanced or un balanced, see table and description) from audio mixer or processor securely to
your EVP-XP unit (the internal amplifier should be off, power down mode). Where possible use quality connectors. Only
use screened audio cable for the signal input from the audio mixer or processor. If possible use balanced line signal leads
for optimum quality (see description and table of balanced line operation).
4. If using XLR CONNECTORS, insert the XLR until locked in. If using a jack plug insert until secure.
5. Power up audio mixer or processor ensuring connections are made.
6. Power up EVP-XP internal amplifier with levels on zero. Confirm speakers are operating.
7. The EVP-XP all feature a balanced Male XLR connector on the line output.
8. The EVP-X12PM,X15PM has one speaker extension output allowing the addition of another speaker.

EVP-X12PM/15PM Panel & Description:
1. Level control: The Level control adjusts the overall volume
of the amplified signal.
2. 5 band EQ: Use this Five-Band Graphic EQ to cut or boost
your signal up to 12dB at designed frequency centers.
This is useful for reducing low frequency rumble or
feedback that often occurs on stage.
3. Parallel Line input and output: These two jacks are
provided to supply a signal input to the EVP-X15PM and to
allow for daisy chaining the signal to possibly another
EVP-X15PM or amplifier combination.
4. Speaker out: The Speaker Out is a post EQ, powered
output designed for speakers with a minimum impedance of
8 ohms speaker. This output should be connected only to
non-powered monitor speakers. The EVP-X15M is the
perfect extension monitor to use in this application.
5. Power switch: use this switch to turn the unit on and off.
6. AC Input connector: The line cord (included) which
provides AC power to the unit. Connect the line cord to
this connector and to a properly grounded AC supply.
Damage to the equipment may occur if an improper line
voltage is used.
NEVER REMOVE OR CUT THE GROUND PIN OF THE
LINE CORD PLUG
7. Fuse: If the fuse should fail, it must be replaced with the
same type and value in order to avoid damage to the
equipment and prevent voiding the warranty.
Peak limiter that protects the amplifier and speaker from
clipping.
0°, 180°Phase switch
Built-in 600 watt (peak), 400 watt (continuous) amplifier
Thermal, DC fault and short circuit protection
Power on and system AGC protect LED indicators
Integral, preset limiter prevents clipping and distortion. Linelevel stereo inputs are summed before being sent to the
subwoofer’s internal amplifier. This feature allows the subwoofer
to operate in stereo systems using a single subwoofer
A pair of an integral 150Hz, 24dB/Oct crossovers to send a
high-pass, balanced, line-level, stereo signal to a pair of
powered satellite full-range speakers or an external amplifier for
passive satellite speakers.
A speaker-level, 1/4” TS phone jack is provided. This input is
useful in applications, such as those employing powered
mixers, in which it is more practical to bring a full-range,
speaker-level signal to the subwoofer amplifier
The EVP-X15/18PB is a 15/18 inch direct-radiating powered
subwoofer. A built-in 600 watt (peak) amplifier accepts stereo or
mono line level inputs via balanced, XLR connectors as well as
single channel speaker level input via a 1/4 inch phone jack.
Integral signal processing includes a stereo crossover and
limiting for the internal amplifier. A pair of XLR out-put
connectors may be used to pass the input signals to another
system or to send a high-pass, line-level stereo signal to a pair
of powered, full-range speakers.

EVP-X15/18PB:
1. INPUT A & INPUT B CONNECTORSThese electronically balanced, XLR and 1/4 “ phone connectors accept input signal from linelevel sources. INPUT A and INPUT B are combined before being routed to the EVP-X15/18PB
Low Pass Filter and internal amplifier. INPUT A and INPUT B are also routed to the OUTPUT A
and OUTPUT B connectors.
2. OUTPUT A & OUTPUT B CONNECTORSOUTPUT A & B provide either a loop-thru or highpassed, line level output of the signal from the
INPUT A and INPUT B connectors respectively. These connectors work with the OUTPUT A &B
switch.
3. SPEAKER LEVEL INPUTThis 1/4” phone jack allows connection of the speaker level output of an amplifier or powered
mixer to the EVP-X15/18PB internal amplifier.
4. VOLUMEThis control enables you to adjust the sound volume level. This does not affect OUTPUT A & B
5. OUTPUT A&B SWITCHThis switch affects the s ignal se nt to the OUTPUT A & B connectors. THRU: The INPUT A
signal is passed directly to the OUTPUT A connector and INPUT B signal is passed directly to
the OUTPUT B connector.
High Pass Filter (HPF): The INPUT A signal is first passed through a 100Hz, 24dB High Pass
Filter before being sent to the OUTPUT A connector whilst the INPUT B signal is first passed
through a 100Hz, 24dB High Pass Filter before being sent to the OUTPUT B connector
6. PHASE SWITCHThis switch enables you to select a phase. This switch will usually be set to NORMAL(0 ). The
REVERSE (180°) setting may improve low-range sounds, depending on the type and location of
the entire speaker system. Try both settings and select the one with better sounding low-range
output.
7. POWER switchThis switch turns the AC power ON and OFF.
8. AC inputThe power cable that is included with the unit should be inserted here.
