    I bought just one for now. Completely changed the sound of our PA system. Best lows for the money! Also us it with TS215"s best pairing ever. Want a second one now for monster lows!

      Comments about Alto TS218S 18" Powered Subwoofer:

      Awesome subwoofer! I'm mainly using this as part of my mobile EDM (mainly house, trance and melodic step) DJ setup. if you're using this subwoofer indoors in a small to medium area then one subwoofer is awesome but when you go outside..... you better get a second one, and actually I just ordered a second TS218S Subwoofer today for that reason. Is the bass absolutely incredible and the best out there? Not quite, but pretty close considering the price range it falls in. The only reason it's not absolutely incredible bass is because it's not 100% earth shattering bass, like feel it in your chest kind of bass... BUT it definitely hits the low lows well and is suffice for the applications I am using it for (outdoor, smaller area, in the mountains/desert events). For the price this subwoofer is great and I recommend it. This subwoofer pairs perfectly with an Alto TS212 speaker. I just ordered some Alto TS215 speakers and I'll update my review once I see how they pair. Happy bouncing everyone!

        Comments about Alto TS218S 18" Powered Subwoofer:

        Awesome and unexpected! I picked this up today from our local GTC and let me tell you! We compared this side by side with the JBL PRX818XLF and this was 100% identical in regard to sound, depth of bass, power, and punch! It really surprised us including the GTC staff since they bash Alto a lot.

        I promise that you'll be happy as this sounds much better than the QSC KW181 and is 100% identical to the JBL.Its only 70lbs as well so its pretty decent to lug around for gigs.

          Comments about Alto TS218S 18" Powered Subwoofer:

          Been playing live music for over 10 years in various groups, music ranging from beach to country to classic rock and 90s alternative and everything in between. For the money, you can beat these. I was fully expecting to purchase the mackie Thump 18s when I went to my local GC. I talked with the sales associate about the few subs in this price range. He suggested these. I wasn't sold until we A/B these and the Mackies. I was disappointed at first cause my heart was set on the Mackies, but let me tell you, these Altos have much better sound. They hit hard down low and pair well with the TS312s that I bought the same day. Going to get a second one for the larger gigs that we do. One will handle a party of 50-75, but it's being pushed just below the clipping point. The second will allow me to bring the level down on each TS218 to half way and leave plenty of headroom on the board for a crowd of 100+ I believe.

          I was convinced this sub wouldn't be enough to do the wedding I had booked this weekend, but I was surprised!! The Alto sub did a 150+ person crowd in a huge space and didn't break a sweat!!

          I called the store for some guidance to troubleshoot and I was rudely told "Can't do much over the phone going to have to bring it in". May I add the is a very large woofer and very heavy.
