Beef up the bottom end of your sound with the JBL PRX718XLF powered subwoofer. Ideal for DJs, clubs, live bands, installations, or any kind of PA application, this powered sub pushes 1,500 Watts of Class D power through a single 18-inch woofer.

1,500 Watts of High-Performance Bass

Promising to deliver rich, deep bass response even at very high sound power levels, the PRX718XLF offers clean headroom and ultra-low-distortion power for every performance. You can crank up your music and still enjoy deep booming lows.

Efficient Drivers for a Lighter-Weight Design

JBL's Differential Drive technology allows the PRX718XLF to keep cool under pressure. Differential Drive technology delivers extended frequency response, high power output, and low distortion in a lighter-weight package than what you're accustomed to seeing with 18" powered subwoofers of this caliber. The ferrite magnet is positioned inside the dual-coil/dual-gap voice coil, which eliminates the need for heavy steel pole pieces and in turn, maximizes power amp efficiency, disperses heat, and increases power handling.

When you pair Differential Drive technology with efficient Class-D amplification, you get a lighter-weight powered subwoofer that drives high sound pressure levels (SPL) and delivers unrivaled speaker and amp performance. All in all, the PRX718XLF provides lots of power, accurate dynamics, and pure sound reproduction in a smaller, lighter profile than typical 18" subs.

Structurally Sound Construction

The sleek PRX718XLF looks as good as it sounds. Built for the long haul, the powered subwoofer is constructed of a strong combination of 25 mm (on the top and bottom for added rigidity) and 18 mm poplar plywood that fits together with tongue and groove joints. JBL's DuraFlex finish and dent-resistant 16-gauge steel grilles ensure that the unit can withstand the wear and tear that comes with regular touring and gigging, and lightweight glass-filled nylon handles provide an ergonomic grip for getting the subwoofer from your van to the venue.

Input Panel

With a DSP input limiter circuit onboard, the PRX718XLF is able to guarantee signal integrity no matter what. The subwoofer also offers selectable system EQ, crossover, dynamic limiting, and amplifier control.

Multiple System Setup Options

The PRX718XLF is all set up for use with other models in JBL's PRX700 series. If you want to integrate it with other compatible units, take advantage of its pole receptacle and integrated stereo pass-thru with selectable HP filter and polarity reverse for matching to system configurations. Stack it for quick setup and teardown.

Features:

- 1,500-Watt, Class D powered subwoofer with 18" woofer
- Single 18" woofer pushes out rich, deep bass
- 1,500 watts of ultra clean power with maximum headroom
- Differential Drive technology delivers high power output and low distortion in a lighter package
- Normal or reverse polarity can be switched for matching to system configurations
- DSP Input limiter circuit, crossover, dynamic limiting, component optimization, selectable system EQ
- 2 combination XLR-1/4" combination inputs with 2 XLR loop-thru

Product Description

With 1500 watts going through a single 18-inch woofer, the PRX718XLF sub is perfect for DJs, clubs, live bands, installs and more. JBL's Differential Drive technology incorporates lower mass in the ferrite magnet for reduced weight while maximizing power amp efficiency for greater heat dissipation and increased power handling.

High Performance Low Frequency Drivers

Tour tested Differential Drive technology delivers extended frequency response, high power output and low distortion in a dramatically lighter package. With the ferrite magnet positioned inside the dual-coil/dual-gap voice coil, heavy steel pole pieces are eliminated. The heat sink is the chassis itself, further lowering system weight while ensuring consistent, reliable performance.

Amplification

Highly efficient Class-D amplification drives Maximum Sound Pressure Levels are the best indication of the performance of a powered speaker and all PRX700 Series excel in this critical specification. JBL's ability to maximize the speaker and amplifier performance guarantees ample power, accurate dynamics and sonic purity.

Road Tough Construction

Built from a combination of 25 mm (on the top and bottom for added rigidity) and 18 mm, strong, light-weight poplar plywood made structurally sound with tongue and groove joints. JBL's tour proven DuraFlex finish, grilles from dent-resistant 16 gauge steel, and light-weight glass-filled nylon handles ensure strength and durability.

Configurations

The PRX700 Series is a platform technology with a range of models that integrate seamlessly for multiple system options that excel in challenging audio environments and loud volumes. Compact and powerful, the JBL PRX718XLF offers exceptional sub/sat performance for its weight and size.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "EXCEPTIONAL PERFORMANCE!!"
Overall: I was looking for a powered sub to replace an older Mackie 15" powered sub. As much as I like the portability of a 15" I wanted the low frequency extension of an 18". I had narrowed down my choices to QSC's KW181, JBL's PRX718XLF and EV's ETX18SP. I had worked with the QSC before and while it does get loud, the quality of bass was lacking. It just did not reach down low enough. EV's ETX had just been released and while the specs are very nice the 115 lbs weight was out of the question. Enter the JBL, a lightweight cab at 81 lbs with solid extension into 30hz. I am very happy with the output and quality of bass. My only con is that the amplifier fan is pretty loud at idle. It is noticeable when playing at very low volumes but disappears into the background with performance sound levels. I look forward to getting another in the future.
