When powerful low frequency reproduction is required, the TX2181 delivers.

The Electro-Voice TX2181 is a dual 18” subwoofer, part of the popular Tour X line of loudspeakers. While a perfect companion to the EV TX2152 loudspeaker, these robust thumpers will be a great addition to any PA system in need of chest-punching, earth-shattering bass output.

A pair of EV’s EVS18S woofers handle an impressive 1,000 watts (4,000 peak) with a max SPL rating of 138 dB, so you can be assured of a thumping, reliable bass heavy experience indoor or outdoors. Electro-Voice went the extra mile on this subwoofer by employing their originally designed ergonomic recessed handles (4).

They are sturdy yet comfortable to grip and make carrying the EV TX2181 a lot easier than previous designs. In addition, the recessed cable connection inputs have also been designed so you can put the cabinet up close to a wall without the cables getting in the way. Smart! An extremely durable front grille not only looks killer but also will protect your investment for years to come. There is an optional wheel kit available (TX-W1), so remember to ask us and we’ll set you up right! That’s the low-down.

Things You Will Get:

  • PA Cabinet

Comments about Electro-Voice Tour X TX2181 Dual 18" Direct Radiator Subwoofer:

I purchased a set of these and they are no good. If you put a 1500 watt amp to them, they will have over excursion from too much power. EV pre sales state they are tour grad subs, hence the name tour-x. EV Tech support claims they are a cosmetically altered Terminator with 2.5 inch voice coils. I can tell you they cannot handle any pro wattage. 900 watts they sound pretty good but not loud enough. pump them higher and they cannot take it.
As far as I'm concerned EV should be ashamed to have fooled the public into thinking they were tour quality. They can't deny it because they named them Tour-X.
I should have known better as they are not even 100% birch plywood like 99% of pro subs are.
