I wanted an upgrade to my current system which included 2 x Alto TS18 subs and 2 Alto TS215 tops. Many people knock the Altos, however I have gigged many an event and they have always been solid and have never let me down - so will not put them down.....However the saying that 'you get what you pay for' rings really true with the EKX18SP - these things are great! Hit hard, low and offer a very musical bass as opposed to loud noise!!! I have these matched with to ZLX tops and the sound is warm, Crystal clear and LOUD!! At least twice the volume of my previous set up. I debated between these and the QSCk181 and can honestly say the decision was easy....Tone, weight, volume, Price all favoured the EV. Very happy with service and excellent customer support from Gearooz.
