I bought a pair of EV ELX118p subs in May and have been very impressed with
their performance vs portability. However, I had one fail on me a couple of weeks ago.
There was no output coming from it and it wasn't passing a signal through to my top
speaker. After thoroughly troubleshooting it turns out part of the electronics in the amp
has gone wrong and is currently at EV being repaired.
Today I had another EV sub fail
on me!! It appears to have a similar fault as it has stopped sending signal to my top
speaker. There is sound coming out of the sub this time but there appears to be a similar
fault in the circuit sending signal through to the top speaker!
I have spoke to a
couple of companies who also own these EV subs. One company bought around the same time I
bought mine and three of these had pretty much the same fault!!! Another company I spoke
to bought theirs a couple of years ago and has totally thrashed them several times a week
without any issues at all!!
This experience has made me pretty uneasy about
these subs as I use them regularly for my job. I can't afford to have unreliable gear!! It
does seem odd that 5 of these bought around the same time should have the same issue!!???
It's also odd that a company I know has thrashed their's several times a week for a couple
of years without any issues whatsoever!?
Maybe it's a dodgy batch???
Has anyone else had any issues with their EV ELX118p subs???
