great sub

By anthony aka tony's tone

from queens ny

Comments about American Audio PXW18P 18" Powered Subwoofer:

this is a great sub i have it running with 2 ev 15's in a folded horn enclosure for mids with 2 jbl horns its a 3 way system my mids and highs are 600 watts rms x 2 and this sub in the middle of them is perfect. i can play a venue of up to 500 people with this set up. I just got it, but so far no regrets its very powerful but it is very heavy, its a two man lift. in my opinion it sounds better than the mackie and its alot less

Boom For Your Buck

By N.S.B. Promotions Wisconsin

from Fox Lake, WI

Comments about American Audio PXW18P 18" Powered Subwoofer:

I bought 2 of these Subs. As one other review stated 1 of them kicked out at a low level right away. I lowered the input level and let them play for awhile and then slowly brought the volume up a little at a time. Within an hour, I was a full volume with no further incident. My Band used them along with our sound companies 4 other passive 18's last weekend for a big outside show. These Subs really Thump - I am very happy with them! I does take some playing around with the input levels and the level on the Subs themselves to get it just right. And they are very heavy, but if you don't have to deal with stairs the included Casters enable you to roll them right to where you need them and tip then into place. I'd say a Good Buy For The Money!!
