Overview

Peavey has always looked out for the working musician, manufacturing tools of the trade that perform at a professional level and do so without emptying your bank account. Forty years after the introduction of the iconic SP-1 loudspeaker, Peavey has done it again with the Dark Matter enclosures. The DM118 Powered Subwoofer is an 18 powered enclosure designed for live sound applications appropriate to bands, DJs, installations and other sound reinforcement challenges.

Thanks to its new advanced DSP-equipped power section, the DM118 brings unprecedented performance and efficiency to the powered subwoofer category. These high-S.P.L. (Sound Pressure Level) enclosures feature modern styling, high output and portability to your PA system.

The Dark Matter LCD display and associated selector knob allow users to choose various parameters of operation for the DSP-based EQ. This includes bass and treble control access, as well as EQ presets for different applications or speaker positions/locations. These presets provide users with a highly flexible method of configuring the powered speaker system for a specific use with minimal time and effort.

DM 118 Subwoofer provides powerful low end with fully adjustable KOSMOS® for increased bass impact, and feature forced air-cooled power amps for optimum reliability. The ultra-reliable Dark Matter series enclosures are built tough with steel grilles and rugged injection molded cabinets.

    Comments about Peavey Dark Matter DM 118 Powered Sub:

    Home recording and live performance, and dj, party music. Fronts, 2 EV ZLX 15,s. Nice. Rears, 2 Peavey Dark Matter 12's, on top of 2 Peavey Dark Matter 118's. Rears look great and sound ok. 2nd sub I purchased had no sound out of the box. 1st one still works fine. If you can afford it. Recommend this order. Peavey, entry level goodness, then EV, then JBL, then QSC is the best. Mackie and Behringer are on the cheaper price and quality side. Hope this helps.
