The Peavey PV 118 Passive Subwoofer is a great low-end reinforcement to round out your PA system. It delivers a deep, clean bass for a small price. If you need some booming bass in a small-to-medium-sized venue, the PV 118 is the way to go.

PV 118 Really Packs a Punch

For the price, you'll be getting a good boom. The PV 118 has an impressive 400W program power rating -- which delivers plenty of bass. Connect it to a good amp, and your sound won't rumble, rattle, or bottom-out. The speaker's bass can get to such a gut-pounding low because of its 18" cone. It can get down to 40 Hz, with a frequency range of 40 Hz to 180 Hz. The PV 118 is ideal for venues that want to add 400 watts of bass to their PA system without breaking the bank.

Designed for Ease-of-Use

The PV 118 is very simple to use: just plug it into your power amp with a 1/4-inch speaker cable, and you're ready to go. It has an internal low-pass crossover, so there's no need to buy an external crossover. Use the PV 118's built-in pole cup to mount a full-range PA speaker on top of the subwoofer, in a space-saving sub-satellite configuration. Because the PV 118 has a built-in crossover, you can feed it a full-range signal daisy-chained from your main speakers. Use the PV 118 anywhere you want to add more low-end punch to your PA system, from churches to bars. You can even use it for an outdoor party -- though the neighbors might tell you to turn it down.

Professional Look at a Great Price

The price tag may not be very big, but this subwoofer looks pretty high-dollar. It has a classic, all-black look with the Peavey logo proudly displayed on the grille. With Peavey's attention to detail, you can expect nothing less than a nicely carpeted cabinet and a heavy-duty grille. Its roadworthy design can take a bit of a beating. The grille is powder-coated and offers good protection for the big 18" speaker inside. And if you're a mobile DJ, the steel handles on the sides of the cabinet are sturdy for easy transportation from gig to gig.

PV Series: The Sound of Peavey

The PV Series is Peavey's line of high-quality gear that has an amazing sound -- for a price that won't clean out your bank account. It's considered Peavey's entry-level series, and is known for its quality, reliability, and reasonable cost. You'll be really impressed with how much you can get for so little.

4.5 out of 5 (94 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Youth church band with tight budget but massive sound"
Sound: I dont really like a sub that extends so far into the midrange like this one does, however if you are bi-amping with a crossover set between 150-250hrz, this thing will knock you off your feet. not only is it loud, but it also sounds better than most PAs that I've used in the past. 1 or 2 of these is good for large gigs and 4 is great for gigs for 250-500 Feature: Even though this sub doesnt have all the features of Subs that I have used in the past, works great. The Low pass crossover is pretty darn good if you are mono amping your set-up and runnning your subs/mains in parallel. I really like the grill. It has taken a few hits in our equipment trailer and saved the woofer many times. Ease of Use: 1/4" jacks, Sturdy Steel handles, fairly compact design. Hard to go wrong Quality: I have probably pushed these harder than most sound engineers would dare, but I have never, Ever had a minutes problems with anything Peavey. Now I do have a Yamaha mixer because peaveys are a little out of my price range, but this combo works really well. Value: Of course I bought mine about a year ago before the price went up $30, but still, you can buy a single 18" sub for $500 that can beat this one, but you can't buy a single 18" sub for $500 that can beat two of these. Ka-Boom. Manufacturer Support: I will give this a 8. I have never had to use it yet myself, but its good to know they are just a phone call away. The Wow Factor: Now, it's not much to look at, but, I have always been about function rather than looks. (and it still looks pretty good for the price) but the sound quality is what sold me. Overall: I have owned these for a almost two years now, and I have set these up on a football field in central Arkansas and cranked it up. These sat in one enzone and at the 50, the were as clear and crisp as any I have ever heard: even at the oposite enzone, they were pretty clear but volume was low

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Absolutely great value, you won't find a better one for that price anywhere. Peavey is a reputable company, don't get suckered"
Sound: Sounds really good. I couple them together, which increases the SPL and that helps. For the price, can't be beat. Feature: Only 1/4" jacks, and everything's going "Speakon" these days. It doesn't bother me though. It has an internal crossover, which I appreciate for simplicity of use. Ease of Use: Plug and play. No external crossover needed, just amp to these, then out to the Tops... and crank it. Quality: I have to rate it according to the price/value. Not gonna get better for the price, and I've shopped around. Value: I can definitely go a "10" here. Manufacturer Support: Never needed it, but they're reputed to be excellent. They have engineers on most Pro-Sound forums always helping people out. Great company and support The Wow Factor: I like the simpleness of the design. I like seeing the speaker through the grill... want mine to look like a PA, not a home stereo. Overall: I've had it for a few years now. Got used two nights a week, five hours per night for 12 months, putting canned music through them in a decent sized bar. I put about 375 watts to each and had them EQed pretty hard, and they never missed a beat. Used them last summer for an outside street party, same settup as in the bar, and they thumped really well. I went way down the street and they were still sounding great, and that was with a live band.
Style of Music: Variaty.
