Electro-Voice® Tour X Owner’s Manual
Safety First
Suspension: The Electro-Voice® TX1122, TX1152, and TX2152 have threaded points that can be used
for suspension. Please consult pages 3-6 on properly suspending Tour X models prior to installation.
WARNING: Suspending any object is potentially dangerous and should only
be attempted by individuals who have a thorough knowledge of the techniques and regulations of suspending objects overhead. Electro-Voice®
strongly recommends that Tour X speakers be suspended taking into account all current national, federal, state and local regulations. It is the responsibility
of the installer to ensure that all loudspeakers are safely installed in accordance
with all such regulations. If Tour X loudspeakers are suspended, Electro-Voice®
strongly recommends that the system be inspected at least once a year. If any sign
of weakness or damage is detected, remedial action should be taken immediately.
Any hardware used to suspend a Tour X loudspeaker that is not associated with
Electro-Voice® is the responsibility of others.
Stand Mount: The Electro-Voice® TX1122 and TX1152 include 1-3/8” stand mounts for use with tripod
stands. Check the specifications of the speaker stand to be certain it is capable of supporting the weight
of the speaker. Place the speaker stand on a flat, stable surface and be sure to fully extend the legs of the
stand. Do not try to make the stand “taller” and compromise its structural integrity. Do not attempt to suspend more than one speaker on a stand designed for a single speaker. Unless you are confident that you
can safely handle lifting the weight of the speaker onto the stand, ask another person to help you place it.
Route cables and position the stand so that performers, production crew and audience members will not
trip over the stand or cables and pull the speaker system over. Secure the cables with wire ties or tape
whenever possible.
Ground Stack: The Electro-Voice® TX2152 can be vertically stacked on a TX2181 to elevate the horn
above the audience. Unless you can safely lift the weight of the loudspeaker on to the ground stack, have
another person to help you place it. The ground stack should be placed on a solid, level surface. When
using subs on a surface that is hard or slick, take precautions to prevent the stacks from “walking”. When
using a ground stack in windy outdoor conditions, when the surface is slippery, or when in adverse conditions, Electro-Voice® recommends using a ratchet strap to secure the speakers.
Hearing Exposure: Electro-Voice® Tour X loudspeakers are capable of producing sound pressure levels sufficient to produce permanent hearing damage. Caution should be taken to avoid prolonged exposure to sound pressure levels exceeding 90 dB.
Moisture: Electro-Voice® does not recommend using Tour X loudspeakers in the rain or in high moisture
environments without protection.

Description
The Electro-Voice® Tour X professional loudspeakers are a unique and highly-functional package of pro
audio performance, versatility and aesthetics. Many of the design features are taken from EV’s many years
of experience in designing transducers and loudspeaker systems for high quality concert touring applications. The TX1122, TX1152, and TX2152 are multipurpose full-range loudspeakers that are equally
suited for portable and fixed installation applications. The TX1181 and TX2181 subwoofers are designed
for low frequency reinforcement of the full-range loudspeakers. The TX1122FM and TX1152FM are
purpose-built vertical floor monitors with (patent pending) Signal Synchronized Transducers (SSTTM) for
small to medium sized stages.
General System Features
· Low distortion, high excursion SMX and EVS woofers
· DH3 and ND2 compression drivers mated to Constant DirectivityTM horns
· Lightweight and durable enclosures with EVCoatTM
· High strength, 16GA steel “backbone” design grilles with rotatable logos
· High order crossovers with equalization and HF protection
· Dual NL4 input connectors
· Multi grip handles
· High sensitivity and power handling
· (6) 3/8” threaded points for eyebolt suspension (TX1122, TX1152, and TX2152 only)
· Signal Synchronized TransducersTM (TX1122FM and TX1152FM only)
Suspending TX1122, TX1152, and TX2152
The TX1122, TX1152, and TX2152 enclosures have (6) 3/8” threaded points; (3) points on the top of the
enclosure and (3) points on the bottom (Figure 1). Forged shoulder eyebolts that are rated for overhead
suspension may be used to suspend an individual loudspeaker, such as the EBK-1 accessory.

Suspending TX1122, TX1152, and TX2152 (cont’)
Prior to use, inspect the suspension point(s) and associated hardware for any cracks, deformations,
broken welds, corrosion, missing or damaged components which could reduce the suspension point(s)
strength. Replace any damaged hardware. Never exceed the limitations or maximum recommended load
intended for the suspension point(s). As an added safety measure, it is suggested that the user install an
extra suspension point back to the building structural supports. This redundant safety point should have
as little slack as possible (less than one inch is preferable). Prior to each use, inspect the loudspeaker
enclosures for any cracks, deformations, missing or damaged components, which could reduce enclosure
strength. Replace any loudspeaker systems that are damaged or missing hardware.
To install the eyebolts, remove the 3/8” screw in the desired locations and replace with the fender washer
and eyebolt (Figure 2). If the eyebolts are removed, reinstall the screw; otherwise air leaks will occur in
the enclosure, resulting in undesirable performance.

WARNING: Eyebolts must be fully seated and orient in the plane of pull as
shown. Always use fender washers at least 1.5” in diameter and 1/16” thick
under the eyebolt to distribute the load on the enclosure (Figure 3). See
Figures 5-6 on proper ways to suspend a Tour X loudspeaker.

Rotating the Horn on TX1152 and TX2152
The TX1152 and TX2152 loudspeakers have horns that can be rotated to change the coverage pattern.
The coverage pattern angles are indicated on the horn flange.
1. Remove the (6 or 8) screws that attach the grille to the enclosure (Figure 8).
2. Remove the (12) screws that attach the horn to the enclosure, and disconnect the wires that attach the
compression driver to the input panel (Figure 9).
3. Rotate the horn 90° to the desired vertical coverage pattern (Figure 10).
4. Reconnect the wires that attach the compression driver to the input panel (reverse of Figure 9). The
yellow wire corresponds to the positive terminal, and the yellow and black wire corresponds to the negative terminal. Reattach the horn to the enclosure using the (12) screws.
5. Reattach the grille using the (6 or 8) screws (reverse of Figure 8).

Rotating the Logo
All Tour X loudspeakers have logos that can be rotated (horizontally or vertically) to the user’s desired
orientation. The logo is mounted on a spacer that has the signature “backbone” notch profile of Tour X
grilles.
1. Remove the (6 or 8) screws that attach the grille to the enclosure (Figure 8).
2. Remove the (1) screw on the back of the grille that attaches the spacer to the grille (Figure 11).
3. Rotate the logo and spacer (in increments of 90°) to the desired orientation (Figure 12).
4. Reattach the spacer to the grille using the (1) screw (reverse of Figure 11). Be sure that the screw is
tight enough so as not to rattle during use, but not so tight the logo warps inward.
5. Reattach the grille using the (6 or 8) screws (reverse of Figure 8).

TX-W1 Wheel Kit for TX1181 and TX2181
The TX1181 and TX2181 loudspeakers have (6) mounting points for the TX-W1 Wheel Kit on their rear
panels. The TX-W1 Wheel Kit is made up of (2) skid plates with (2) castors on each skid plate. When
mounted on the rear of a TX1181 or TX2181, they can greatly reduce setup time and virtually eliminate
the need to carry subwoofers.
1. Remove the (6) screws on the rear of the TX1181 or TX2181 loudspeaker (Figure 13).
2. Align the (3) holes at the top of the loudspeaker with the (3) holes of the skid plate. Install (3) screws
back into the rear of the TX1181 or TX2181 loudspeaker. Repeat this step at the bottom of the loudspeaker, ensuring all (6) screws are tight (Figure 14).
