Push some air with this 18" active PA subwoofer! EV loaded this tough 1800-watt sub with DSP limiters, EQ presets and level controls for real-world gigging.

Overall: Had a few issues with shipping, my sub arrived with a dent in the grill but zZounds gave me a generous credit if I wanted to keep it. This sub is super bass if your looking for it. Note if you setup in a corner and it's directly center of your setup, you will get allot of bass hitting from behind then in front. Weird I know but trust me it through me for a loop. I've never seen heard a sub do that before. This is a EV thing because I had the next model down and the same thing happened. Sounds great and will rattle your chest but when you walk around to the front it's not as loud. If you are against a straight wall it isn't as noticeable at all and sounds amazing when setup in the center of your table. I love the wheels and how easy it is to transport, EV had a free cover during the month I got it and it couldn't come quick enough. Make sure you order a cover because it does chip easy. I want a 2nd one for sure and would buy again to match my set. A little dissapointed that the bass hits behind me like that but it's still a great buy!!

Overall: MONSTER sub. This thing kicks @$$, out performs the QSC KW181 for sure especially for the price. It is a little big but if you want monster tight low end this is the box for you.

Overall: After having the EV ELX 118P for some years we decided that it's time for a upgrade. After doing a lot of researching and a lot of listening the ETX is the best hands down. We've tested it against the QSC KW181 and the Yorkville 801. I can honestly say that I'm 100% satisfied with the EYX.
