        Looks are deceiving with the EV ELX118 powered subwoofer. I wish I had a total of 8 in my arsenal of powered speakers. Even with one its perfect for any same club use, to even a home stereo setting. Great to setup with ease and easy enough to move on your own (even for a old timer like myself).

          Solid-built and easy to set-up, this sub is the best 18 inch option for the price. It looks great as well and will complement any DJ or Live Band setup. If you are looking for a reliable loud unit for a great price - look no further.

              These subs deliver time and time again. The wood construction gives great warmth and tone with the 700 watt class d amp providing all the kick you need. These are consistently my best seller every month and at $799 you won't find d more bang for the buck. EV brings the noise!

                This subwoofer will deliver a low end that is warm, tight and punchy. Unlike other similar powered sub woofers that has power but lack in clarity and punch without getting it muddy down there below 100hz, ELX 18 will deliver a bass response that will put a big smile on your face.

                  EV does it again. Anyone who buys a QSC over an EV or Yamaha is simply buying because the QSCs are more expensive and they want to brag. The ELX 18 P Specs out virtually identical to the KW 181, hits just as hard and is EQ'd be have that slightly warm, high-low end, hit you in the chest kick drum sound at almost half the cost. The ELX 18 Ps are only $100 more than the Samson DB1800s and are MUCH cleaner. The DB1800s break up and clip real quick.

                  Do yourself the favor, step up to the ELX, or compare the new ETX 18 P to the KW 181s for a pro-level sub.

                    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.

                    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.

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.
