Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (48 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Peavey will kick Makie right in the teeth."
Sound: I bought one sp218 for my church recently. We do some really bassy stuff like Delerious, Stavascare, and some other hard rock/punk/metal type stuff. This enclose produces nothing but smooth loud bass all night long and was able to add that extra thump to our drummer's double kick bass style. I've also used it for our all night long Lord of the Rings movie festival. The ground was literally shaking in the area we were using it. I was afraid I was going to dislodge ceiling tiles on the level beneath us. It was truely amazing. Feature: These speakers rock all the way down to 25 db. How can you compare that with anything else on the market? It often get's run on 2,400 watts at 4 ohms off a Berhinger amp that has to be bi-amped to get maximum use out of it. The only thing I might want added would be a built in pyro technics display, but that might be too dangerous. Quality: It's Peavey, I don't need to say more. Value: Dollar for dollar this subwoofer kicks anyone right in the teeth. Manufacturer Support: Never had any problems, never had to call them. The Wow Factor: Music should never be played without at least one of these. I hope to be getting another one soon. It's HUGE and BLACK what more can you want... Overall: Let's be serious. I have talked to guys who like Makie subs... they are a bunch of punks. They obviously have never heard these low rider speakers. These speakers put everyone else to shame. Anyone who buys anything else is going to be cryin' home to mama. Component part systems are here to stay! I will never have to replace a speaker and amp because I blew one. I will only ever replace what is blown. Speaker/amp combos will never dominate the music industry... they are total crap!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The SP 218, it a well designed subwoofer enclosure that will meet your needs."
Sound: For what it is I rate it very high. I assume there are better subs like the Q-Wave, Versary,but you need to ask yourself, what is the application? The SP 218 is not a concert series enclosure. It is meant for more moderate sized gigs. I DJ for dance clubs and even do sound for open air city summer festivals. This cabinet x 4 along with my 4 SP1 G's will definately get out there without a problem. I use 4 2400 watt QSC RMX 2450's (one for each cabinet in bridge mode). That's right! 9600 total watts just for the low end! This combination kicks ass for just about anything you want to do--except a concert--big venues. I leave that to the big boys with their 250 pound concert series speakers times 50 to 100? Overall, good low bass, but tight and punchy--good for that thump to drive people to shake it. Feature: I like the engineer's design of the jake plate--two quarter inch inputs with a two pin speakon input at 4 ohms and a 4 pin speakon input to be able to use 2 separate power amps to drive each 18 inch speaker separately if you wish. I use it only for PA, not for guitars. Ease of Use: Again, very high marks--it has the deep bass I like and the punch the sound needs. Quality: I was skeptical at first. I did not think a lighter birch plywood cabinet (20 pounds lighter than the SP 218X--great cabinet too),would take the pounding my two SP 218X's deliver. But it does. Subjectively, I believe it sounds a little better and can definately handle the power. It is the same dimentions as the SP218X Value: Ok, you want to by an image? Go by McCauley or JBL enclosures. Yea, you might get more respect from snobbish musician's, but get you check book ready, you are going to spend more money for an equivilent enclosure. That's right, the big guns make enclousures of the same power handling and materials, but they cost hundreds more. I like a good value and Peavey delivers. Manufacturer Support: I call Peavey headquarters whenever I have a question or problem--they're the best. So far with either my SP218X's or the new SP 218's, I have never needed service--& I have never blown a speaker--and I romp on them. The Wow Factor: It's a great looking cabinet. I think my patrons at dances or city festivals don't care what it looks like, only how it sounds and I always get great compliments from them for my tri-amped SP 218's with SP1 G's! You know, Peavey did make a mistake when they phased out the SP1 G & X models. Listen up you guys! The SP1 G was the best mid and high end cabinet you ever made. Bring it back! The combination of the black widow 15 inch speak and 44XT compression driver with the CH7 horn is an ass kicker. I can be two blocks down the road at a city festival and they still project well. Overall: For what I do, I don't need anything else. It's like being a mechanic with a tool chest full of snap-on tools. Need I say more?
