OVERVIEW

A powerful, mobile, and extremely affordable subwoofer that delivers intense long-throw bass.

This powerful folded-horn subwoofer cranks out devastating, long-throw bass on a budget and still manages to be quite portable. The B-52 LX-18EV3 is ideal for live sound and music replay applications and delivers more low-end thunder than you'll know what to do with. This sub's cabinet is fitted with B-52's 18-220X 1000W subwoofer, which provides high-power handling, great efficiency, very low distortion, and accurate sound reproduction.

The American-made cabinet features 7-layer 3/4" plywood construction, reinforced internal bracings, and is finished with impact-forgiving black carpet and 4" heavy-duty casters.

The speaker's 18" subwoofers are  The optimally-sized acoustic aperture of the compression chambers forms the throat of the horn and helps force the air at an increased velocity and pressure.

The heart of the B-52 LX-18EV3 is its 18-220X subwoofer which is housed in a compression chamber that minimizes the excursion of the driver while maximizing the subwoofer's output.  Its light weight and robust cast-aluminum frame is shaped to minimize reflections on the back of the cone.  The entire loudspeaker is designed to work as a heat sink for extreme cooling efficiency.

Earth Shaking

By 5 Dollar Shake

from South Georgia

Comments about B-52 LX-18EV3 1000W Folded Subwoofer:

These subs will shake the fillings out of your teeth. I first had my doubts about how much air these subs would move, but after supplying them with an ample amount of power (800 watts each), I decided I needed more to fully push these subs. With just the 800 watts, I had stuff falling off my walls and shaking the room next door to my studio. Your hair will literally stand up on end if you are in front of these babies! Be warned, these subs are not for small clubs as they are way too much bottom end unless that is what you are after. I pair them with a set of JBL SF25's and push about 1200 watts to the subs and about 1100 watts to the mains by way of a driveack and have enough sound to fill almost any venue, including outdoors. Great buy, great sub, great sound. You will not go wrong with the addition of these folded horns. One comment about folded horns, they pretty much direct the bass out front and do not "surround" a room like conventional subs.

the 18EV3 Ive Nick named "Zeus"

By DJ Brian-ZZHyZ

from N.Bennington VT

See all my reviews

Comments about B-52 LX-18EV3 1000W Folded Subwoofer:

Ok... Why i named th 18ev3 ZEUS.... simple... god of thunder... this sub hits so hard i cant believe it.. im powering it with an Samson SX-1800 running in mono (1500 rms and 1800 peak) the sub is crossed at 47 cycles.. In most clubs, Zeus will vibrate the celing tiles loose! I know this because i have to dump out the dirt that rains down from the celing the following day. folks... this speaker is simply the best investment i have ever made (in the speaker world) and you do NOT need to buy two.. unless (lol) you got an insanlly large amp and a colossal room..i did an HS dance.. in the gym..(full gym) the rafters were buzzing.
Simple and Perfect.
Second To none..
Try and get another Folded Horn thats better.. i dare you

    Comments about B-52 LX-18EV3 1000W Folded Subwoofer:

    I have always wanted a set of Folded Horn Subs. These are a excellent bang for the buck.
    I'm driving them with a PV 3800 @ 100Hz down with a 30Hz cutoff via a DBX Drive Rack PA. These babies will move you and the neighbors too.
    Some say it's a little Overkill for home entertainment, Hell, I want 2 MORE! ;)

    The item was dented in in 3 different places. It functions but it has dents and scratches as if it was a used item. Also it took longer to ship than it was supposed to. I didn't bother to send it back because it functions but I'm gonna be a little skeptical about what Musicians Friends future orders (If I do do business with them in the future)

    Comments about B-52 LX-18EV3 1000W Folded Subwoofer:

    Cut them at 120 htz. at least 2500 crown watt per subwoofer, and be ready to feel the thunder. If you are outdoors you may want to add a cheap pair of subwoofers in front of the stage to add presence at the front of the stage as the bass delivered by this monsters travels a long distance. I would compare this bad boys as powerful as a dual 18" yamaha club V or JBL srx series. I had them since they first came out sitting in the trailer without humidity control. 78503 weather is extremely hot and humid perfect to rot electronics. the whole system (8 s115v powered by 2 mackie m4000, 4 b-52 lx18ev3 powered by 2 crown xls 5000, bbe xover at 120 htz 4 on the highs 7 on the lows, 5 contour 5 process, yamaha mg32/14fx, samson q7's all across the stage not on drums of course :) )was enough to fill the whole venue 6+ acres clear and loud everywhere. We played the system from 3pm to 1 am without a problem 110 degrees the first 4 hours.

      This is a great sub it is equipped with a good quality Celestion driver that has a low free air and qts. It has great low end and the more you stack the lower the freguency sound goes. It has great efficiency and is built very sturdy. For the money and the output you get it is untouchable.
