Ok this is just my thoughts, For the past year in a half I have used this sub from small to large events. I was skeptical at first due to the power rating on this sub but I needed to add some low end to my mains so I rolled the dice and bought it and now I admit I have buyers remorse. This sub does o.k. but it is what it is a entry level sub and at 300 watts and max spl of 119 it works well in smaller rooms. This sub seems to clip easy and does not give off the clearity of a higher end sub again entry level. I have had some popping sounds coming from my sub for a couple weeks now and when I talked to Peavey I was told that most likely the sub had over extended at some point. If I could go back in time and take my own advice I would have waited a little longer spend the extra money and went with something else. By the way a replacement sub for this box will run you around $130.00 to me it does not add up since you can get this sub for $500 new. It's your choice and your money if all you ever do is small stuff it might be for you but if you think you might go bigger at some point save yourself time and money and look at something different. This is only my thoughts and I am not try to bash peavey because they do make good products. Thanks

      This subwoofer is great. Hands down.. It is a great value, but that don't mean it's cheap in it's build and holdings. It is a great sub, with enough power to applicate in any given situation. It's solid. strong concept makes it able to last a war. And it's sound, it can rattle the poo right out of you. It's an all around great addition -and now a days with more and more wanting rap, it can bang better than the speakers in the trunk! * This is a must have.

        Comments about Peavey PV 118D Powered Subwoofer:

        I could not believe the difference using 2 of these over 1. I honestly had a hard time making these clip and even then it was very minor. The Techs at Peavey are Right On in their recommendations of using and applying their products to pro audio. I guess that's why they have been in business all of these years. I have always used Peavey products for sound reinforcement and, I always will (over 40yrs.)

        As I stated in the headline. I ordered 1 it worked so well so I bought another one and, ordered 2 poles for mounting the satellite speakers instead of using tripod stands. Really completes the sound system and, yields a full and balanced sound.

        Comments about Peavey PV 118D Powered Subwoofer:

        I had been on a search for a smaller lighter Sub to complete the sound system for my band and, this is it. We are a 4 pc. classic rock/country band that does mostly small to medium gigs in bars and clubs and, maybe an occasional auditorium or outdoor street dance. We use a Peavey XR8600 powered mixer doing 4 vocals kick drum and, a little bass to the mix. This sub is the perfect addition to finish the sound system. We use 2 SP2's in larger gigs and 2 PR12's for smaller gigs and, this sub is the perfect compliment that completes the system. This powered speaker really shines as you can filter all the low frequencies to stay in the sub and, everything above 120hz goes to the sattelites, really cleans up everything and the system is able operate at a lower volume with a more fuller sound. Small bars and clubs really appreciate this as their customers don't have to deal with a loud band= more gigs and, re-bookings. The techs at Peavey were very helpful in directing me to this purchase, they hit the nail right on the head! I have used Peavey sound gear for well over 40 yrs. and, it has always gave me what I wanted for a decent price on a working musicians budget.

        BEWARE!! BLEW IN 1st GIG

        By Robert Marra

        from Boston, MA

        Comments about Peavey PV 118D Powered Subwoofer:

        PLEASE READ! Ok, so I am a DJ, starting to get more club gigs, with the occasional gig at bars/venues with no real sound system. So I decided to invest in some speakers and a sub. This one seemed to get good reviews, and I spoke to the guitar center sales rep, and it seemed like a good 'bang for your buck' buy. I try everything out at home, and to be fair, it sounded GREAT. I even get to the bar, set everything up with about 30 minutes to spare, and have some music playing, and it really sounded quite pristine. The room started to get full, everything was going great, BUT THEN, around an hour and a half into the gig, all the sound went out. The sub had BLOWN OUT. All the volumes were at good, equalized levels. Nothing was above 6/7 out of 10 power-wise. There was absolutely no acceptable excuse for this to happen. I am definitely going to stay away from Peavey, and take the guitarcenter employees words with a grain of salt.

        Best Uses

          Comments about Peavey PV 118D Powered Subwoofer:

          This product is not what I was hoping it would be. I purchased two of these subwoofers to run along my PV215D Cabinets and I was very suprised and not in a good way.I have the 215 Cabinets at level 10 at all times and they NEVER clip unless I try to make that happen, with effort. These subwoofers though, with a very detailed tuning of crossover frequency and gain level could not produce bass at a comporable level to the high end. At level ten these subs were clipping at -40db. With their levels set at 10, the bass gain on my crossover had to be at -30 and let me tell you, these things were making almost NO noise.Sad part is, I sent them back after 4 phone calls (musicians Friend is VERY helpful, GREAT customer service, love these guys) and when I got the same pair back...what do ya know, they did the exact same thing.If you want to spend [$] on a sub that doesn't BUMP, BOOM and hit you with "Bone-Rattling BAss" (I quote the sticker it has on the front) then buy this, otherwise, find something else.
