A powerful, mobile, and extremely affordable subwoofer that delivers intense long-throw bass.

The powerful 1000W B-52 LX-18EV3 Folded Subwoofer delivers intense long-throw bass while remaining a mobile and extremely affordable speaker. The LX18EV3 is ideal for live sound and music replay applications. The LX-18EV3 features the B-52 18-220X subwoofer. The cabinet, made in the US, features 7-layer 3/4" plywood construction, reinforced internal bracings, and is finished with impact forgiving black carpet and 4" heavy-duty casters.

The speaker's 18" subwoofers are housed in a compression chamber that minimizes the excursion of the driver while maximizing the subwoofers' output. The optimally-sized acoustic aperture of the compression chambers forms the throat of the horn and helps force the air at an increased velocity and pressure. The LX-18EV3 subwoofer's compression chamber optimizes the horn's output, allowing for amazing output levels.

All B-52 folded-horn cabinets are loaded with the new B-52 18-220X subwoofer which provides high-power handling, great efficiency, very low distortion, and accurate sound reproduction. Key features include:

•4-inch "inside/outside" voice coil wound on both sides of the glass fiber coil former, providing more effective cooling through greater air contact
•The light weight and robust cast aluminum frame is shaped to minimize reflections on the back of the cone
•The entire loudspeaker is designed to work as a "heat sink" for extreme cooling efficiency
•The advanced magnet topology ensures an even distribution of magnetic flux throughout the whole magnet assembly, resulting in symmetrical motor movement that prevents stray flux which can cause interference
•The glass-fiber impregnated cone incorporates a sealed surround and added edge-damping to greatly reduce the occurrence of unwanted cone resonances •The vented magnet ensures constant air circulation to drive heat away from the magnet assembly

  • Buy B-52 LX-18EV's Brand New

    As reviewed by Henry Stephens on 9/19/2013

    Guitar Center has the best deal on these B-52 sub-woofers. After searching for used B-52's online for 2 months, I realized that most people wanted just a couple hundred dollars less than what they paid for theirs brand new. Not to mention that their speakers were probably abused and in need of repair. Don't waste your time buying these used. I had these two monsters delivered to my door-step for $917.00 out the door. Interestingly, ever since I hooked these up, the neighbors who used to wave to me as they passed by have suddenly stopped....

  • Totally Excellent Value!

    As reviewed by John Fischer on 5/6/2013

    I purchased 4 of these for my wedding band to use on our bigger shows. Guitar Center made the whole process simple and I feel like this was 2 grand VERY well spent. So far we have only used 2 of them and the testicular subjugation (domination for those running for the dictionary...) that has occurred has been unreal! The first event we used them at the bartenders were telling us the glasses were falling off the shelves! It's not that we were playing so loud, just that the low end was SERIOUSLY low! I have been on a spending spree lately with quite a long list of stuff I still want. I will for sure be knocking more off my list at Guitar Center. Like the other reviews say these are not for the faint of heart and they are quite large and heavy. We have a 16 foot trailer so it's no big deal for us. As for reliability, I guess the jury is still out on that but our previous subs were also B-52 front loaded single 18's and they served us perfectly from 2006 until last week when I unloaded them for about half what I originally paid! Very happy about that too!

  • Awesome Sub for the money

    As reviewed by Sequoia Drive on 3/25/2011

    Awesome Sub for the money! My Band recently purchased two of these to replace two peavey passive 18's. There is no comparison. They pump deep bass with out having to crank them. We use one 1000 watt crst power amp for each sub and with our drummers triggers and alesis unit, we could be a hip hop band if we wanted to. Build quality is excellent! The built in handles and casters are nice for mobility but you will need a trailer!
