    Comments about Electro-Voice Ekx-18Sp 18" Powered Subwoofer:

    One of the newest additions to the Electro-Voice range of truly high-end PA speakers, the EKX-18SP is a force to be reckoned with. This 18" powered subwoofer pushes out an astronomical 1.3kW of power for a 134 dB peak SPL down to 35 Hz. The reason why the EKX-18SP can provide such amazing performance is how each component was meticulously engineered by EV. The latest technology such as the SST waveguide and next-generation transducers are incorporated into its design, meaning you get the best experience possible from your investment - it sounds great and never lets you down. The rugged wood enclosure and high-grade build quality means the cabinet looks great and can withstand the rigours of the road.

    Comments about Electro-Voice Ekx-18Sp 18" Powered Subwoofer:

    EV took the flag ship ETX model downsized it slightly while still retaining all the important features and dropping the price to a more affordable range. An onboard class D amp will put out 1500W and the onboard DSP signal processing will allow for different frequency responses out of the amp. Pair this up with any powered EV Speaker and youll be good to go.
