I had first bought a couple QSC 15" powered subs at 1000 a piece and was very disapointed in the quality of sound. they were completely wrong for the size of the room. so I took them back and puchased one Yamaha Dual 18" Sub. we actually hooked it up in the practice room and was actually more disapionted in this Sub than the others, But when it was hooked up in our main Auditorium it filled the room with such astonding Bass i had to turn it Down. It had the best response with the low end smooth Bass, but even when I had my Drummer play his Double Bass it still responded with the amazing sound the second hit as the First. This test was conducted at 100db.

    underrated speaker cabniet

    By Adam

    from Charlotte,NC

    Site Member

    Comments about Yamaha SW218V Club Series V Subwoofer:

    Well....first off, I am pretty smart when it comes to pro audio and have all industry standard equipment. I see reviews stating how the sub isn't any good and can't handle power. Well, it's always better to over power a speaker than underpower it, you will have a better chance of blowing an under powered sub. I have two of these cabniets with two crown XLS2500 bridged mono at 2440 watts to each cabinet. The amp crossovers are set at bridged low, the pass filter set is at 96 htz. We have played 500 plus capacity venues and have been asked several times to turn them down. I see all the comments such as, " it isn't as good as JBL or Mackie." Well, compared to this line level sub cabinet, nothing compares to these, not Mackie nor JBL PRX series. We all know that JBL makes the VTX series, now if your packing out an arena, then that's your speaker. But also your gonna pay 2,000 for a single 12' cabinet too!!!! For the money, this has an all around great, tight sound. Also, don't be scared to match them with the dual 15 cabniets as well!

    Best Bang for your Buck

    By LOUD ENOUGH SOUND

    from Aurora, IL

    Comments about Yamaha SW218V Club Series V Subwoofer:

    The only reason I give the subs 4 stars is because there are better subs out there. But not for the money. However, they need power. Look at your amp ratings and figure out what kind of power you get the way you run your speakers. While they can sound good with five or six hundred watts pushing them, they come alive when you overpower these bad boys. I live around the Chicago area. I have four pairs of these with 16 of the single 15 in 2 way for mids and highs split up into four different rigs. Once I got my first complete set of two dual 18's with four 15 in tops, I had to buy more because I quickly started getting double and triple booked when word got out. For each dual 18 and each pair of 15's, I run a Behringer EP2500 at a 4 ohm bridge mono set up with the 30 hz filter and limiter switches on. That is supposed to be 2400 watts of power out of each amp, a QSC RMX2450 clone. Just a hair away from 10,000 watts of power into 4400 watts of cabs. Pro's with JBL's have complimented this rig. $1400 on amps and $2200 on cabs. Finally, what you have helps out a lot, but if you don't know how to use it, the cost and name of the equipment don't mean squat.

    Great addition to my Low End

    By Woody Dhaiti

    from NYC

    Comments about Yamaha SW218V Club Series V Subwoofer:

    I just got a pair of these to reinforce my low end. And it sound Grrreat!!! I have them each hooked up to a crown xti 1000 bridge at 1400watts @ 4ohms and they hit hard. They exceeded my expectations. A bit on the heavy as far as weight goes. But when you hear them it makes it worth the "weight". Overall, solid product I would recommend buying one or two if looking for Low end reinforcement, or looking to add some low end to your rig. Either way you'll be pleased. The price on these makes it a steal.

    Decent Subs

    By Zachary Sprott

    from Medford, OR

    Comments about Yamaha SW218V Club Series V Subwoofer:

    I'd have say say this dual cab is decent. I'm only running 4 tops at 475 watts each so it doesn't have to compete with much, but that small setup it works great. I'm feeding it off of an epx2000 bridged and it does nicely. I think a pair of these off an xti4002 will be plenty for shows under 800 people.

    You have to amp them right to get the most out of them

    By T.O'Brien

    from Ft. Washington, Maryland

    Comments about Yamaha SW218V Club Series V Subwoofer:

    I have 4 of these and i love them. I am running them with two 4000w Behringer amps in bridge mode,and a DBX Drive Rack and they kick...Yea I have some JBL'S as well for my other system and to tell you the truth it's hard to tell them apart until you look at the price. The JBL'S can handle more power but my Yamaha's get the job done nicely for half the price..Good job Yamaha!!

    Works for me!

    By Rob

    from Hagerstown, MD

    Comments about Yamaha SW218V Club Series V Subwoofer:

    I heard these babies in the test room and bought them. I didn't realize their potential until the 1st gig I had with them. I literally vibrated the glasses off shelves at 6k square foot bar. People are shocked with the power I am running to them and how much I paid. I am looking to get another sub/amp set in near future since moving into a larger venue. Great buy!

    They work for us very well and hard

    By Dunmore Music

    from Monee IL

    Comments about Yamaha SW218V Club Series V Subwoofer:

    We use them for our band to impress our drum and bass player sounds in live concerts. We power by Crest Power Amp CA 18 they sound great for the money price for dual 18''s they rock for us. We are going to buy two more for our next concert series for 2011 and another Crest CA 18 amp. We must be the best at the music game.
