Hi,Has anyone had a chance to compare both of these speakers? What are your thoughts?
Well I've never heard of Alto.the Alto is 200 Watt continuous 125db SPL Peakthe EV is 250 watt contentious 132db SPL Peak.You will get more volume out of the EV. The EV is also a wooden cabinet which I like better. I've never heard either though. I do like a lot of EVs stuff though. The Xw12A are great. It might help stating what you plan on using them for.I did find a review here though http://forum.fractalaudio.com/amps-cabs/49889-alto-ts112a-vs-ev-elx112p.html
Watts do not matter.Those SPL numbers don't mean anything either. They were not obtained under the same conditions, using the same methods.The ZLX is not a wooden cabinet.

Yeah Watts don't matter. But SPL gives you at least some idea, granted they're peak and tend to be over estimated but it's still a reference point.
If you are going to quote specs at least get them right.From the Alto web sight:800 Watts peak (670 W LF + 130 W HF), 400 Watts continuous (335 W LF + 65 W HF)I have four of the Altos and they sound surprisingly good. I have not used the ZLX's.
Look at the specs of the passive versions (TS112 & ZLX12) . Those give you more realistic idea of what's in it. the Power version specs always just list widely over done specs of the power amp.
I've been out of the loop for several years, but isn't Alto cheap "DJ" gear? Like below Behringer? Gemini, Nady, Pyle Pro Audio, MTX, etc? Or am I wrong on this one?I would take bottom line JBL, EV or Peavey before top of the line of any of those.
