This sub is a upgraded elx118 which is not a bad thing. Heavier cab, better finish, great DSP, and very portable. I did a high school senior picnic with about 160-200 ppl in a gymnasium with just one sub and it did great. Depending on the room you are playing in, you can really feel the bass. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was b/c it limits easily but there is 2 limit stages which is a nice feature. Overall its a great sub and you wont be disappointed!

    Skeptical at first when I got the unit due to it's size, looked kind of small than what I'm used to . but boy was I surprised , this thing hits like the bigger ones if not better and at half the weight. I use to have a berhinger 18 " which was a huge enclosure, and difficult to carry , this one , no issues . very satisfied.

    2 words.... Simply AWESOME. These aree some really great sounding speakers. The thump you get from these are glass shaking. have a pair and they easily cut thru 400 screaming kids. I dont even have to push them, they sound great. Get the covers so you dont scratch them.

        Comments about Electro-Voice EKX-18SP Powered 18" Subwoofer US Cord:

        We use a pair of these subs, matched with 2-4 ZLX-12P main speakers, for gigging with our band, as well as for providing live sound for other bands. In many smaller venues we just use one sub, with great results, but we've also used a pair of these with 4 mains in larger venues and had no problems filling those spaces with deep, thumping bass. One caveat is that we haven't done any DJ or rap gigs that are bass-heavy, but for the rock and metal shows we've done they've been more than adequate to the task, and we've pushed them pretty hard. I would definitely recommend these as a great value. The only reason I gave them 4 stars instead of 5 is because the corners of the cabinets lack any protection, so they get dinged up pretty easily. The other issue we've had is that they haven't remained square, so they rock slightly when sitting on a flat surface. Not a huge deal, but it can be nerve-wracking when you have 1-2 mains mounted on a fully-extended sub pole.

          I tied the Alto 18 and the JBL-PRX718. Alto, not so good, JBL, great but big and a little heavy, plus expensive. Then tired this.

          Good size, relatively light (72 lbs) and clean, crisp sound. I will buy another after I get thsi one paid off!

                      These subs are really a great! I purchased two of these along with two EKX-15sp. Great sound. Will be adding two more subs in the near future. Two of these are great for small venues but for larger venues or outdoor gigs you need more than two of these. These things have lots of power and a very clean sound. When trying these out in the store, one other brand hit a littler harder than theses but could not compare with the clarity of the EV brand. The onboard DSP is great and easy to navigate. The only con I can come up with for these subs is the coating on the outside of the cabs could be a little thicker but it's not a deal breaker. It's still pretty durable. All in all, great speakers and good price point. Will but again
