      Electro-Voice ETX-18SP 18" Powered Subwoofer (J07257)

Big bottom if you don't already got 'em.

No matter what kind of music you play, a subwoofer will add a warmth and depth of presence that you and your audience will find engaging, pleasing, and even intoxicating. "But I play in an acoustic band," you say. A lot of the charm and character of an acoustic guitar signal resides in some surprisingly low frequencies. The fundamental frequency of an E string is 82 Hz, and the A is 110 Hz. The EV ETX-18SP is an 18" powered subwoofer with 1800 watts of Class-D power with 135 dB peak SPL. It reproduces frequencies from 28 Hz to 180 Hz, so whether you are adding depth and warmth to vocals and acoustic guitars in an Americana setting or DJing dubstep and drum and bass in a dance club, the ETX-18SP will add a new dimension to your performance.

Inside each low-profile, tour-grade wood enclosure are a range of unique new features that set ETX Powered Loudspeakers apart, combining intelligent technology and innovative industrial design for spectacular results across all applications. EV-engineered high-efficiency transducers and high-powered Class-D amplifiers, Signal Synchronized Transducers (SST) waveguide design and smart FIR-Drive DSP all work together to provide peerless EV sound quality and precise coverage at the highest SPLs.

  • Ridiculous!

    As reviewed by Juan on 10/2/2014

    I was looking at upgrading my system for a long time and finally sold all of my old stuff. After a TON of research I finally found a Guitar Center that had the ETX line in stock so I could demo them. All i can say is WOW!!! The amount of BASS coming out of 1 of these ETX18SP was MASSIVE! I demo'd it along with a 15P and the sound was AMAZING. Needless to say I purchased 2 of these along with 2 15P tops and I am very happy.

    I've always been a "Speakers with a rack full of Amps" guy so when I started playing again with my newly formed band, I was told to take a look at the new generation of Powered Speakers. I was VERY skeptical at first because I just didn't think they'd have the same "umph" that a rack full of amps will give you. So I worked a deal with GC Pro and bought a pair of ETX-15ps along with a pair of ETX-18ps and figured, worse case I'll just take them back if they don't work for me. First the setup was SO easy. Powered them up and configured the built in DSP. They have an easy to read LED display on the back. They first ask if you are on a pole or array etc. Then what type music you will be playing. DJ, Live, Public Speaker etc. Then they ask what you have them paired with. In my case I dialed in the ETX-18ps. Done, no setting crossovers or drive racks or patching cables, simple. Then I knew it was going to be a good night when I analyzed them with S.M.A.A.R.T. They were 100% flat. Never had that happen, my house EQ was set flat. Finally it was show time. After the 1st set I was sold! These ETX-15ps paired with the ETX-18ps, packing 2000 watts a speaker just SANG! The keys and vocals sounded so crisp. The kick and bass where thumping. I highly recommend these speakers.

    ETX18SP RUN AWAY, DO NOT BUY! Inferior to QSC. I bought one for use with a DJ rig but slated for use in a live rig for bands with ETX35's and ETX18sp, in the first week one of the 35's woofers died. 2 weeks later I got a replacement from EV (I've used it twice since) The sub since day one never had the kick (accurate punch you would associate with 1800 watts) I was expecting and seemed to be flashing PEAK way before it should. I had giged with the sub at maybe 10 shows and seemed to hit nice at lower volumes having to turn the sub gain down -3 -4 to not over power the room with bass in smaller venues, but never had the punch of my Mackie SWA1801's or My B-52 Act18V2's when I was in bigger rooms loaded with people it just didn't have the power needed to drive a giant cabinet like that. It has been 30 days since I made the purchase and 21 days since it arrived to me and I used it for the first time. I have lots of EV speakers (SBA760's SXA250's TX2152's) for many years and have never had a problem with anything other than wear and tear. I replaced the woofers in the sba760's with Peavey Lomax's after 7 years of heavy use and they sound great. The 2152's had a rattle in the cab but was glued at repair shop under warranty. I have been a fan of EV for a long time but the ETX's have left me with a bad taste in my mouth, 2 down in the first month? EV needs to come out with a version 2 of these asap before they start loosing respect of veterans like me. I would expect this from a low end brand but not from EV. The power ratings on these are at Peak which means that the sub is only 900 watts of usable power. My older EV stuff was rated at RMS or continuous, so I feel they also duped me buy changing how they advertise their power ratings. The 135db (NO WAY THIS SPEAKER CAN GET THAT LOUD) rating is also calculated not measured so duped again. I have a decibel meter but never thought about measuring it and now it's dead and I don't even want another one. Going with QSC KW181's, cheaper, smaller, lighter, more reliable, 2000 watts peak and louder. Don't take a chance, I am having to ship back my second EV speaker in less than one month, EV has the plague, run away! Note to EV, only crap speakers advertise power at peak, Behringer, Harbinger, ALto, EV? Never thought I'd see the day EV would stoop so low as to deceive me and deliver an inferior product.
