Electro-Voice Sb122 overview

  • 1Description

The SB122 from Electro-Voice is not only compact and lightweight, but powerful as well. Designed to enhance Sx and Zx series speaker systems, the SB122 has a long-throw 12-inch driver in a composite enclosure with a large vent for less compression and turbulence, resulting in increased low frequency output. The SB122 has 400W of continuous output power for strong, thumping bass.

The SB122 can be connected in parallel with a full-range speaker without the need for an additional amplifier and processor, thanks to a built-in low-pass filter. Below 160Hz the filter is transparent, so the subwoofer may be used in biamp situations without disabling the filter. The rear panel offers parallel Neutrik Speakon input connectors, while the top of the cabinet has a pole mount socket. The SB122 also has a built-in handle for easy positioning.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent, but 1 of pair arrived damaged I am a professional musician with 30 years of experience mixing sound. I bought this pair of EV 12-inch subs to replace a pair of Cerwin-Vega 15-inch subs. The C-Vs performed perfectly but the EVs were much less bulky and lighter by about a third. I was prepared to sacrifice some bottom but was reassured by product reviews that the EV 12s would surprise me in a good way.When I plugged them in and raised the gain, I was aware of severe distortion. It didn't occur to me to try each one separately, but rather brought them to a trusted local speaker shop, an authorized EV warranty center. They found one of the woofers rubbing badly, and were surprised it sounded no worse than it did. They determined this was how it arrived and EV warranty is paying for repair. I am glad it was resolved so easily as B&H had warned me this was a non-returnable special order. Later I held my breath as I tested the good one alone, finally raising the gain and the bass EQ to very loud levels with excellent results. I felt a thump much like the one I had from the C-V 15 subs, which is really saying something since it was just the one, with its mate at the repair shop. The 12-inch sub fulfilled my expectations very nicely.I also bought a pair of 8-inch EV ZX-1's to replace a pair of vintage 12-inch EV S-122's, again for weight and space considerations. The ZX-1's performed perfectly, with sound and volume better than the larger, older EVs they replaced.I have enjoyed many EV speakers and microphones over the years and this is the first time I have received a defective unit. As it was covered by warranty and did not need to used on a gig immediately, no harm done.
