The Electro-Voice ETX-18SP 18" Powered Subwoofer provides earth-shaking low end for any musical scenario. Packing 1,800 watts of power through an highly efficient 18" woofer, the ETX-18SP reaches deep to reproduce frequencies from 28Hz to 180Hz, adding fullness and depth to vocals, bass, synths and more.

High-Powered Performance

At the heart of the ETX-18SP is a burly yet nuanced 18" woofer paired with a Class D amplifier that outputs a whopping 1,800 watts of power. The result is a subwoofer with concert-level volume and impact that can rattle walls and shake floors. For DJs, electronic and hip hop artists and other bass-centric performers, the ETX-18SP provides the chest-thumping low end that audiences crave.

Precision Coverage

EV's exclusive Cardioid Control Technology focuses the ETX-18SP's output for tight, directed coverage that reduces unwanted resonance and noise on stage. The ETX-18SP's rear-firing woofer is delayed and inverted, canceling out sound behind the enclosure. The end result is a subwoofer with pinpoint accuracy that won't bleed into nearby microphones or overpower the mix.

Roadworthy and Ready

Despite its formidable power and performance, the ETX-18SP is built for life on the road. Its rugged wood enclosure is durably constructed to handle the rigors of loading in and out of venues night after night. Integrated handles make transporting and positioning the ETX-18SP a breeze for a single technician. With its impressively compact footprint, the ETX-18SP is easy to incorporate into any stage layout and system design.

Digital Control

EV's on-board DSP provides total control over the ETX-18SP. Shape your sound with five EQ presets tailored for different musical applications. Enable dynamic limiting to automatically protect the woofer from overexcursion. With the optional ETX-18SP Controller app, you can fully control and monitor your ETX-18SP right from your mobile device.
