Comments about Electro-Voice ELX118 Live X 18" Subwoofer:

I am a DJ/Band Sound guy, I have 2 of these an they are connected to an XTi4000, bridged mono 4ohm, sonic maximizer, Yamaha MG board. The sound quality is excellent, punchy bass for those rock and country songs, and deep low bass for the hip-hop. The bass will rattle your fillings out an kick you in the chest at the same time. Surprisingly the bass throws quit far.

I am however, VERY disappointed in the finish, it scratches very easy, battle scars after the first show. So I had them Line-X sprayed (voids warranty), so now they can take the abuse of loading an unloading and still look good.

I push these speakers pretty hard, shows of 200-250+ people pretty consistently, and they keep on thumping. I was blasting them at 125db (measured) on July 4th, the sound quality blew me away!

BUT! the boxes started to rattle at high volumes at the lower frequencies, after about 25hrs of use (5 shows). Not sure the cause of the nasty rattle but will be testing my fix tomorrow.
