We use the product in a studio setup and live sound setup. We have shifted from Crown / JBL and Peavey passive speakers to all active speakers running through an SD16 Digital Snake along with the Behringer X32. Fantastic and simple setup, and when I called JBL support they quickly got back to me for a simple question I had making sure the Mains and Subs were setup properly. TOP NOTCH

The bluetooth control seemed like a good idea, but it's not. If you use it, you set the gain all the way up and then turn it back down via the app. Instead of crossover points it has shelf filters... why? The app is pretty bad, IMHO. I think I'd rather just have manual control- it's just easier than spending time to sync to it, use the app, etc.
It's not as powerful as I had hoped as far as SPL. Not playing super bass-heavy stuff, but maybe it's because I didn't have forever to dork with the app on a small iPhone screen with tiny controls.
I'll probably get another one, but only when it's on sale and despite the lousy app- just so it's a matched pair on my PA.

Comments about JBL EON618S 1000 Watt Powered 18 Inch Subwoofer:

I was looking to replace the passive subs in my band and upgrade to lighter powered subs. I read the reviews and hoped that these would be good. As the are JBL's I expected them to perform decent even though they are low end and cheap (for what they are). I Drove down to Guitar Center in Gwinnett, Ga with plans to try them out and compare them to a few others. FIrst issue was in the "Pro-Audio" area the guy claimed that they didn't have the subs hooked where they could swap between them on the board so all he was able to do was play music through his phone. After listening to 5 minutes of music I decided to take the chance and buy them. Big mistake, After driving 2 hours back home my singer and I spent an hour and a half hooking these up every way possible to try to get volume out of them. These subs had no presence and no volume no matter what we did. We called a friend who is a sound engineer asking fo advice but nothing helped. So having already wasted 7 hours of my life I loaded thes back up and drove 2 more hours back to the store to return them. They took them back with no issue other than writing me a check instead of giving me cash back. I can't say how extremely disappointed i was with these subs, especially being a JBL product. But as the saying goes you get what you pay for.

Great bass and very durable. Did a gig in extreme heat over 90 degree weather with the humidity more like 105 and it did the job no issues 7 hours (this was from 12pm - 7pm)

      Comments about JBL EON618S 1000 Watt Powered 18 Inch Subwoofer:

      I use it for live music, paired with Eon 615s, which makes a great setup for my purposes. Sound is crisp and clear, with a nice tight low end thump. Bass drum will hit you where you live, and bass guitar is tight and undistorted. I believe this one to be the best of it's price range.

      Comments about JBL EON618S 1000 Watt Powered 18 Inch Subwoofer:

      This sub sounds pretty good with lots of power and I like the Bluetooth controls. The issue is that JBL is incapable of fixing it. I have had it in the service center for 40+ days as of this review with no idea when I get it back. They have over a 100 speakers that need replacement boards as I write this (according to JBL). So over a 100 people are without their Subs due to JBLs quality control on 3rd party parts/suppliers. I wouldn't recommend any JBL gear after my experience with their warranties (their warranty = we will fix it when we can and if we can't, we store it until you move on or forget about it) . Look elsewhere for Pro gear. I wish I had.

        Comments about JBL EON618S 1000 Watt Powered 18 Inch Subwoofer:

        I bought the EON 618S to add to a pair of JBL JRX 125s on a Crown XTI 2000 Amp. Works great for the room it is in and I would definitely buy another down the road if I decide I need more bass. I am running the XLRs out from the Crown amp and have the crossover in the crown at 80HZ on the low end with a 18db HP Butterworth for the JRX 125s. I just ordered more XLR cables to compare this setup with running the speakers through a behringer crossover ;-) Again I love this speaker I am getting event bass out of this no doubt.
