      Peavey SP 218BX Dual 18" Passive Subwoofer (H81656)

Reasonably priced, high power handling subwoofer enclosure.

The Peavey SP 218BX Dual 18" Passive Subwoofer loudspeaker system delivers high output, low distortion bass from two 18" Pro Rider woofers mounted in a vented enclosure. Designed for portability, durability and great sound, it is constructed of a hardwood panel coated with Peavey’s heavy-duty HammerHead UV stabilized polyurea finish. A full-length, wrap-around perforated steel grille protects the front of the enclosure, and casters are mounted to assist in portability. A pole mount is also included for support of a high-pass enclosure.

For more than three decades, the renowned Peavey SP Series has been the mainstay of bands of every type and installation enclosures for every imaginable venue. SP Series enclosures are builtin the U.S.A. and made to last with patented and exclusive technologies that make your sound clear and true, and efficient and strong.

Every enclosure in the SP Series features Peavey's field-replaceable speaker basket design, an exclusive feature that allows you to replace blown cones on the gig with ease. Speaker re-coning is expensive and can take weeks, but with Peavey speakers you can replace the entire cone just by removing three screws.

    As reviewed by S & L PRO DJ SERVICES on 5/17/2013

    Well i purchased this subwoofer 2 months ago and i was really happy i got it. So i bought a behringer epx 2800 power amp and ran it on bridge mode and when i first heard it i was blown away! The punch was hard especialy with techno style music.The sub does the job!!! I would highly recomend any DJ to get a pair of these, i only have one but it still did the job at a prom i recently did with around 300 people! This sub rocks up to 4800 watts !!! :O Im pretty sure that if you were to have 4 of these bad boys it be enough for a big event! Its well built, the bass on its great, built to last, love the built in casters and handles ALL IN ALL its a great sub! Keep up the good work PEAVEY!
