        This 18" powered sub will rattle your bones. It doesn't matter if you are using this as a mobile dj or as an install in a church, the sound quality is amazing. The built in 700 watt amp is perfectly matched to the 18" speaker. Wide frequency range to accommodate any music. This is a real hands-on product review from David @ Sam Ash Ontario.

        Comments about Electro-Voice ELX118P - 18" Live X Powered Subwoofer:

        For all the 18" subwoofers out there, this one is quite different. The price, there isn't anything that can compare, especially for the quality of sound and amount of bass. Although heavy, the amount of low-end power makes up for it all. When paired with the EV ELX 15" PA top, you get a killer PA system! The bass is enough to fill up a medium to large space room and won't be too overwhelming.

        Overall, this is a very easy to use subwoofer and is something I would highly recommend if you are in the market for an 18" subwoofer that is less than $1000.

          This is a real hands on product review from Izzy Drum Manager @ Sam Ash Glendale, AZ. These EV ELX 18" powered subs are great for the busy band that gigs from venue to venue. From Casinos to Bars, the light weight cabs are great for transportation. These subs are essential for a great sound system. Great response and feel. You can clearly hear the kick drum and bass guitar during a performance.

            The cabinet is very nicely built, very rugged. You can pretty much use it anywhere as you wish. It's a great compliment to any size of two-way loudspeakers. Simple one input and one link output on the back if you need to route your signal to other speakers

            The crossover eq is a great tool when you need to cut some muds and keeps the powerful thump in your full-range setup

              When you want a good loud rumble with clear tone this thing is a powerhouse. 2 of these with 2 12 inch ev tops produces a sound that can't be beat. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music

                This is one of the best sounding powered subwoofers on the market. It's got it's own crossover, and can easily fit into any PA system. It can take a lack luster systema and really make it thump.

                  Great all around sub. If you are a DJ this will get you the bass that people are used to at the clubs. Will keep them moving and dancing as long as you play the right music. Also great for live shows, get the low end of the kick drum pumping and bass guitar rumbling. Depending on the venue 2 or more subs may work better.

                  If you've been DJing for a while and are starting to feel liek you need more "body" to your performance, or just more volume in general, add this sub to your set up! Not only does having a sub help bring out the true low end to your mixes, but it allows your mains to work less hard so they can be driven even louder! And with it's built in crossover, the ELX118P makes set up a breeze. Not to mention it sounds AWESOME!

                  The EV ELX118 is one of the better subs in a modest price range on the market today. I set up live sound for a lot of local acts and the biggest issues I have are portability, quality, durability and budget. Im constantly transporting gear from place to place including venues, homes, outdoors etc. so portability and durability ae very important to me and this sub has been taking all the punishment I've put it through and has yet to give me any problems what so ever. Its still a bit on the heavy side but compared to a lot of other subwoofers with less to offer, 70 pounds isn't that bad. But more important than anything is quality at an affordable price. Honestly, I wouldn't think to find such great sound at such a moderate price. This sub has a great range and at 134 spl, I cant imagine finding myself in a situation where it wouldn't do the job, and if Its a big gig, I would just use two. Which is why my next purchase will be another one of these bad boys. I recommend this to all gigging sound men and dj's.
