18” hornloaded subwoofer (including locking-hardware)

The E18SUB is a subwoofer in a rectangular chassis for fixed installations and mobile use. The subwoofer is equipped with one high-performance 18" speaker (4” voice coil), which is hornloaded for long-throw effect. The integrated locking-hardware can be used for a quick and safe connection to all other ELITE models in stacked applications without any adapter or additional frame. The ELITE models EL10, EL15, EH10, EH15 and E15SUB can be stacked, fixed and tilted (negative / positive +/- 3°) to ensure a perfect alignment of the mid/high frequency speakers to the audience. The integrated tripod base (M20) enables the use of a M20 distance rod for universal and flexible use. The chassis is constructed from 15 mm plywood (birch) and covered with black PolyCoat© finish. The cabinet is equipped with four grip handles and one front grill with transparent charcoal foam backing. Two speakon connectors (NL4) are mounted at the rear side of the chassis for signal input (input) and signal link (link). The power rating of the E18SUB is 1.000 W (RMS), the impedance is 8 ohms.
