      I've used 2 of these for my smaller mobile setup and I think they sound amazing ! The wood cabinet is not as heavy as some other subs I've used. The built in crossover makes it a dream to pair with the Live X ELX115P's. This subwoofer makes the bass boom !

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

        EV is good. EV is always well priced and this cabinet is no exception in regard to that. However, if you want low-end that bangs and you want to FEEL the bass, then this is the sub for you. At the $799 price point, it is by-far the best sub in it's class. The ease of use and the great sound OUT OF THE BOX, makes this cab not easy to beat. I have recommended this to a lot of people one on one and i am now telling you (the world) that you will not be disappointed.

        This is a hands-on product review from Jamie @ Sam Ash Indy.

                This lightweight 18" subwoofer has a durable paint job and sounds great. It has awesome low end and good headroom. A must have item for DJs and small night clubs. Churches with a full band, can certainly benefit as well.

                    Needed clear low-end without being muddy and annoying.
                    This sub has a massive sound, great clarity, and punchy bass.
                    Very nice one from Electro-Voice!

                      This Sub made my rig very solid sounding. It made a very big difference for me when I was not using one. Even when I was playing when playing in large venues.

                      I use this bass speaker in my DJ setup. This coupled with 2 EV 12" is a HUGE sound in a small package. Built in crossover makes setup a breeze. Delivers big sound for a relativly low price tag. This is a real hands on product review from Espo@ Sam Ash New Haven.

                        Looking to get that powerful low end bass in your live band DJ set up or church? maybe even for your home theatre or personal listening use? This sub will get you that low end punch that you like to feel in your chest at any event or movie theatre. Putting this Sub up against any other 18" 1000W speaker - this one will take the cake with the hardwood cabinet that resonates the tone quite nicely - Once you listen to the EV, you will never own another speaker that doesn't have their initials on the front. This is a hands on Review from Danny at Sam Ash #48
