The ETX 18 Sub is hands down one of my favorite powered Subs out on the market. Its unbelievably powerful, with 2000 watts of power on tap for any need. Also the fact that you can tune each individual speaker to the room. These subs are without a doubt m go to recommendation for any application.

        Wow what a subwoofer. This sub is not only loud but it projects very well into a crowd. With an 18" driver this will also reproduce lows really accurately.

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

        This sub is incredible for your smaller and bigger gigs. I've done some shows with two subs and the bass was so strong and pushed very well I was happy I could easily cut the level so it wasn't to strong. One sub can easily handle a room of 200 people or more depending on the setup. Overall the best sub Ive used in recent years. Hands on review by Branden Sam Ash Buffalo Grove.

            If you need a little (or a lot) extra bass, this monster of a sub-woofer will not disappoint. Take your low end to the next level. LCD monitoring is the icing on the cake.

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

                  WOW, this speaker is just killer! I have been letting my friend use one of these in my friends mobile dj setup along with a pair of jbl prx712 top cabinets and it compliments it very well. In Fact, a few weeks ago we did a gig with about 150-200 people on the dance floor in an outdoor venue, it was under a tent, but everything was loud and clear. The bass for just one sub is impressive enough. I did turn down the eq at 30hz to get a little more output. Every other outdoor gig we have done I have had more than enough output and can't believe how much really low bass this thing cranks out. Definitely recommend to anyone who needs more bass and low end in their life.

                    Really nice sound. 1800 Watts class D amp. EV has integrated an LCD screen to give better accurance to the settings. There is also EQ curve and top/sub configurations. These controls adjust automatically to give you the best sound for your rig. Wheels on the back protects the LCD screen and makes this sub easily mobile. 135 db peak SPL. Huge output!!! Look out QSC KW, got some competition.

                      A really nice 18 inch sub that can handle plenty of bass and produces clear tones. Well constructed and easy to move with the casters. I was impressed with the onboard lcd screen and tweek controls that it offers. Great for any large practice space or medium size club. This is a real hands on review from Eric @ Sam Ash Cincinnati.

                              EV has done it again with this amazing sub. Thankfully they put it on wheels to make it portable. The box is made of birch and is super solid. This box has huge bass andreally adds some feel to the music. They made the DSP on the back really easy to use as well so anyone can figure it out. They give you defaults to optimize your speakers performance. There is nothing in this price range that can compete with it. I am a reviewer for Sam Ash Music, Lyndhurst.
