            Comments about Electro-Voice ETX-18SP Powered Subwoofer:

            Electrovoice has really blown me away with their ETX line up. These are my favorite cabinets on the market. This is the ETX 18 inch subwoofer which puts out a whopping 1,800 watts! With a normal setting as well as a cardiod setting this sub can act as a reflex cabinet as well. Built in DSP with EQ settings, Delay, and a crossover so no external rack gear needed! The price point is appealing as well, more powerful than its competitors yet around the same price! They sell themselves! But I urge you to go to Sam Ash today to hear them yourselves! Hearing is believing! :)

              Puts the "B" in bass!

              EV doesn't disappoint with this subwoofer - crystal clear on the low end and the power to provide bass to sizable venues. Not to mention very easy to move (if large sub-woofer can be considered easy to move...) with sturdy casters to wheel your gear in and out of venues.

                      Incredible sounding powered sub. Sometimes powered subs can lack in comparison to their passive brothers, but that is not the case with this one. You could easily spend this much and more on a passive sub/amp combination, but the power/features of the ETX Sub blow passive subs out of the water. Thankfully these do come with casters, because they can be tanks to move. 1800w of room shaking power. I have personally broken ceiling tiles while using this sub.

                          super heavy lower bottom end that gets the rumble going at any event. No outsourcing of any kind all done from EV engineers which shows in the quality.

                              This sub is huge! Even when cranked, this sub produces full, clear bass and sounds fantastic. The cabinet is just the right size and not overly bulky. It would be great for any club, church, or venue looking for a solid subwoofer.
