Overview

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.

Comments about Electro-Voice ETX-18SP 18" Powered Subwoofer:

I already need another! I traded 3 Mackie SWA1801 to get this plus some cash. I could always hear the bass with the 3 subs but could NEVER FEEL IT. This 1 sub produces more sound than those 3 together and felling the bass is not even a question! With my Db reader, 1 Mackie was reading 95-100 on average right at the front of the speaker. The EV it's up to 107db. This was consistently hitting this with various songs. And for the first time, went home and ears were hurting a little. Very happy with the trade and highly impressed with the clarity at its peak. Even the non sound people I work with notice an immediate difference from the upgrade.

      This sub is amazing. It delivers crisp and loud bass that will make the room shake and make things fall off the walls. I got two of them and I'm completely satisfied with my purchase.

      Comments about Electro-Voice ETX-18SP 18" Powered Subwoofer:

      I have been a DJ for over 17 years and this is one of the best subwoofers I have owned. It blows away any of the ones I have heard and I have heard a lot of them. Nice crisp deep tones. Hope the price comes down a little so I can buy another one.

      Boom!

      By Mark

      from Cypress, TX

      Comments about Electro-Voice ETX-18SP 18" Powered Subwoofer:

      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.

      Ridiculous!

      By Juan

      from Sacramento, CA

      Comments about Electro-Voice ETX-18SP 18" Powered Subwoofer:

      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.

      Banginglicious !!

      By Miguel

      from Austin,Tx

      Comments about Electro-Voice ETX-18SP 18" Powered Subwoofer:

      Like all, i was a little worried a powered sub wouldn't be as "boomy" as a traditional sub (like all time known cerwin vega). I was WRONG!! This 18 inch Ev powered sub Is DOPE!! I use 4 of these, with 4 active powered mackie as my tops (i'm a mobile DJ). I'm able to shake walls off a 1,250 person capacity event center!!! Nothing BUT CLEAN,CRISP,LOW Punches out of these subs!! There's two types of subs out there, one of them you can hear the bass. The other you can actually FEEL those low,clean punches right into your chest! That right there is what i want out of my subs!!! And these powered subs got what it takes!! I've compared two of these subs, with the all time classic cerwin vega subs(500watts each). They both pick up as much as 3 of the cerwin vega subs!! Don't take my word for it, GO TRY THEM OUT!! Guitar Center always gives you 14 days to try em out,(if not a little longer). Won't be disappointed.
