Overview

This powerful folded-horn subwoofer cranks out devastating, long-throw bass on a budget and still manages to be quite portable. The B-52 LX-18EV3 is ideal for live sound and music replay applications and delivers more low-end thunder than you'll know what to do with. This sub's cabinet is fitted with B-52's 18-220X 1000W subwoofer, which provides high-power handling, great efficiency, very low distortion, and accurate sound reproduction.

The American-made cabinet 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  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 heart of the B-52 LX-18EV3 is its 18-220X subwoofer which is housed in a compression chamber that minimizes the excursion of the driver while maximizing the subwoofer's output.  Its 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.

I have always wanted a set of Folded Horn Subs. These are a excellent bang for the buck.
I'm driving them with a PV 3800 @ 100Hz down with a 30Hz cutoff via a DBX Drive Rack PA. These babies will move you and the neighbors too.
Some say it's a little Overkill for home entertainment, Hell, I want 2 MORE! ;)

The item was dented in in 3 different places. It functions but it has dents and scratches as if it was a used item. Also it took longer to ship than it was supposed to. I didn't bother to send it back because it functions but I'm gonna be a little skeptical about what Musicians Friends future orders (If I do do business with them in the future)

Comments about B-52 LX-18EV3 1000W Folded Subwoofer:

This is a great sub it is equipped with a good quality Celestion driver that has a low free air and qts. It has great low end and the more you stack the lower the freguency sound goes. It has great efficiency and is built very sturdy. For the money and the output you get it is untouchable.

Comments about B-52 LX-18EV3 1000W Folded Subwoofer:

Cut them at 120 htz. at least 2500 crown watt per subwoofer, and be ready to feel the thunder. If you are outdoors you may want to add a cheap pair of subwoofers in front of the stage to add presence at the front of the stage as the bass delivered by this monsters travels a long distance. I would compare this bad boys as powerful as a dual 18" yamaha club V or JBL srx series. I had them since they first came out sitting in the trailer without humidity control. 78503 weather is extremely hot and humid perfect to rot electronics. the whole system (8 s115v powered by 2 mackie m4000, 4 b-52 lx18ev3 powered by 2 crown xls 5000, bbe xover at 120 htz 4 on the highs 7 on the lows, 5 contour 5 process, yamaha mg32/14fx, samson q7's all across the stage not on drums of course :) )was enough to fill the whole venue 6+ acres clear and loud everywhere. We played the system from 3pm to 1 am without a problem 110 degrees the first 4 hours.

    Buy B-52 LX-18EV's Brand New

    By Henry Stephens

    from Ontario, CA

    Comments about B-52 LX-18EV3 1000W Folded Subwoofer:

    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!

      By John Fischer

      from Rockwall, TX

      Comments about B-52 LX-18EV3 1000W Folded Subwoofer:

      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!

      the 18EV3 Ive Nick named "Zeus"

      By DJ Brian-ZZHyZ

      from Bennington, VT

      Comments about B-52 LX-18EV3 1000W Folded Subwoofer:

      Ok... Why i named th 18ev3 ZEUS.... simple... god of thunder... this sub hits so hard i cant believe it.. im powering it with an Samson SX-1800 running in mono (1500 rms and 1800 peak) the sub is crossed at 47 cycles.. In most clubs, Zeus will vibrate the celing tiles loose! I know this because i have to dump out the dirt that rains down from the celing the following day. folks... this speaker is simply the best investment i have ever made (in the speaker world) and you do NOT need to buy two.. unless (lol) you got an insanlly large amp and a colossal room..i did an HS dance.. in the gym..(full gym) the rafters were buzzing.
      Simple and Perfect.
      Second To none..
      Try and get another Folded Horn thats better.. i dare you
