Best Bang for your Buck!

Comments about SWR Big Ben 1x18 Bass Speaker:

This is a great speaker for low bottom end. I've had mine for about five years now, I bought it used and it's an old one with the black 18" speaker cover (round) over the speaker. This is a very warm speaker and not at all muddy for an 18. I use to use mine with an Eden Metro combo w/2x10's and it was so fat. I've just purchased a Goliath III and I'm using an Ashdown MAG300R now and cant wait to hear how this combination sounds together. Buy this cab if you are looking for reliable low end. The only problem I had was after the fourth year the speaker connection on the inside of the cab vibrated loose. It just took a couple of minutes to reconnect that back myself.

Big Ben brings it

By Anonymous

Comments about SWR Big Ben 1x18 Bass Speaker:

This speaker is the foundation of my stack since '03. There is no way to fake the low end out of a lesser speaker. It makes the ground shake and stomachs grumble when I crank the low end and hit the low B. And it adds warmth and bottom end to all higher notes as well. I love the sound and still get comments on it at most shows. Thanks SWR.P.S. chrome = good. always.

Comments about SWR Big Ben 1x18 Bass Speaker:

I am running the SWR 700watt Head into one 4x10 and one Big Ben 18" cabinet. This totally ROCKS! The tone is AWESOME! I have an OCEAN TB-75 5 string bass and this combo is the BOMB!!!!! Hats off to SWR for making an excellent product.

Big sound / lightweight

By Dave B-8yW5I

from Barrington NJ

Comments about SWR Big Ben 1x18 Bass Speaker:

Have owned the BIG BEN for a couple of months now.This cab. is great with a goliath jr. 2x10 as one would probably expect, but I am very impressed by the way it sounds by it self too! Very fast and punchy but with roundness!This cab. even sounds good with slap style.Cab. is pretty easy to move too.BIG BEN is a nice BASS speaker cabinet.

best sound ever

By merritt

from northfield, nj

Comments about SWR Big Ben 1x18 Bass Speaker:

i have a 1973 fender bassman 135 head powering this cab and a vintage "folded" bassman 4x12. at small venues playing this cab and the head alone, it has the best low end and a suprisingly good high end sound to it. i bought almost new for i think its the best investment i ever made.

2 Big Bens

Comments about SWR Big Ben 1x18 Bass Speaker:

I have two of the old SWR G-III Cabinets and I have tried a lot of sub cabinets with them over the years, and I have as of yet to hear the fat bottom end that these have. My sound is High, Mid, and Low all at the same time. It is everything I ever wanted in a rig. I cannot be overpowered. Clean fat Big Ben Bass. The 4 10 Sound was great for small settings but the Ben's add the bottom touch I was looking for.

Comments about SWR Big Ben 1x18 Bass Speaker:

talk about big, fat tone. good sound for such a large speaker. it'll really rattle your cage. but i do think that SWR should have put the port holes in the front below the speaker instead of behind the speaker on the back of the cab. even though, it still has a big sound. i am tired of the 4x10 sound myself, and cant wait to get me a big ben.

Rumbling low-end, huge power handling, chrome-plated grill, clean tone. What does this speaker not have?
