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

  • Made in the U.S.A.
  • Rugged, impact-resistant black carpet finish
  • Void-free, 7-layer, ¾" plywood construction for maximum durability and minimum weight
  • Input connections: (2) ¼" metal phone jacks and (1) Neutrik NL 4 Speakon connector
  • Reinforced internal bracings are used to fortify the cabinet
  • 4" heavy-duty casters
  • Pole-mounting cup
  • Nominal Impedance: 8 Ohms
  • Frequency Response: 30-160 Hz
  • Power Handling: 1000 watts
  • SPL @ 1w1m: 108 dB
  • Peak SPL: 138 dB
  • Dimensions (W x H x D): 24" x 37" x 32"

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

By Henry Stephens

from Ontario, CA

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

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

By Sequoia Drive

from Macomb, Il.

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!

perty darn good..

By SubFoundations

from CO.

The B-52 LX are darn good speakers they hit as hard as any Folded horn and are just as clean. Folded horns sound good at a distance or great for speaker huggers. The B52's are a great buy, they are built well and sound good. I play music that is made up of bass and need a big sound so far these have done the trick Not FunktionOne but they kick out bass for you bass heads.

Money well spent

By Ryan

from Johnstown, PA

These speakers are absolutely amazing for the price. From the second I connected them to my system - WOW. Full-body bass is an understatement. I plan on using two of these with 2 front-loaded, bass reflex subs and I have no doubt that they will be fantastic.

Awesome Bottoms


from Lubbock Texas

WOW...What a about a bang for your buck deal...anyways i have 4 of these bad boys and they are identicale to the cerwin vega EL-36C 18in folded horn sub which i had but got rid of them for these and they sound awesome..they deliver the punch and it is a very compact sub ..meaning 3in smaller than a cerwin vega so that way you can buy more and still have room in your trailer for other stuff...these really do the job...go get you some.
