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

    The EV ELX118p is a well-priced unit, and an industry standard to which many other products are compared. While the power output is not overwhelmingly huge, it will remain solid for most small to medium sized venues, and when paired up with a second sub, can carry the low end very nicely. You'd be hard pressed to find another sub for this price that packs this kind of punch. This is a real hands on product review from Mike @ Sam Ash Margate.

        No One who is serious about the quality of their bass shouldn't get and 18" power subwoofer cabinet if it's not the EV ELX18P.This sub box hits the jackpot on sound quality,weight,size and ofcourse on price as well.The bass sound is tight and accurate however the bass doesn't drop as low as some passive sub boxes.What I also like is how low the electronic noise is and how the amp performs for hours without over heating.One thing to also be aware of if you are going to use on sub and to powered top ,this sub doesn't come with dual inputs nor outputs to facilitate this setup.Besides that don't buy any other sub below the sub in this price rage of $1.14 per watt

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

            The Electro Voice ELX (Live X) 18 is an awesome subwoofer. The wooden body gives the ELX 18 a great warm sound. This powered subwoofer boasts 1,000 watts. But, possibly best of all, the EV Live X 18 costs around 1/2 the price of its main competitors that boast the exact same specs.
            Because this subwoofer is powered, it has an internal crossover that will save you room in your rack. Also, on the back, the EV has universal inputs so that you can use either 1/4" or XLR inputs. Also, as with all powered speakers, since you don't need to send power to it from a subwoofer, you can get rid of your amp (which further lightens your rack) and you don 't have to worry about ohm rating concerns.
            All in all, this is a phenomenal subwoofer at an amazing price. It can be used in clubs, outside, in a concert venue, weddings, pretty much wherever you would need. Plus it comes with a 3 year warranty straight from the manufacturer. I have not been able to find one thing wrong with this product for as long as I have been working with it.

                I have always loved EV. Their design is great, their customer service and warranties are great, and their sound is hands down the best. This is a TEMENDOUS sub, ESPECIALLY for the price. Seriously, just go in and listen to a pair of these subs and you'll see what I'm talking about. Earth shaking lows, yet clear and not harsh. Great power and great coverage!

This sub is great for any DJ who is wanting to have more bass sound with less equipment. It runs cool without any fans. The sub also has independent volume controls. Its great for outdoor use, smaller rooms, solo musician, and great for churches! It also fits with any 12' or 15' speaker. They can also be stacked or mounted for use.

                      EV delivers a really good sounding product with enough punch at a not-so-EV pricepoint. The 700W amp delivers plenty of power for basic band & DJ setups and the 18" woofer ensures that you'll get plenty of foundation rattling lows! Its combination XLR/1/4" jack allows you the option of what cable you'd like to use (or have). You have a single input & passive output (XLR ONLY!!) so you can go to another powered speaker or amp. This is a good way to get into the EV level of quality without spending the additional $$ associated with their name.

                      The EV sub is exactly what you're looking for in a bass cabinet. It hits hard. The built in crossover splits the signal perfectly. Nothing but low end comes out of this beauty. So powerful, I only use one with 2 EV 15's for the mids and highs. Perfect setup even for large spaces. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music.
