Exceptional performance, tremendous value, and extreme portability.

The B-52 LX-218 is a pounding 550W 18" 2-way speaker designed for mobile live sound and music replay applications and is the perfect companion for the LX-18 or LX-18A. Ideal for bands, medium-sized venue installations, corporate A/V, or mobile DJs, the LX-218 loudspeaker combines high-output and sound clarity with crisp highs and deep, well-defined bass.

This B-52 speaker produces an exceptional full-range response, from thundering lows to crisp highs. The B-52 18-180 cast-aluminum framed loudspeaker with a 3.5" polyamide voice coil has tremendous output that allows you to both hear and feel the music. The customized built-in passive crossover perfectly mates the loudspeaker and high-frequency driver without losing essential midrange reproduction.

Comments about B-52 LX-218 18" 2-Way Loudspeaker:

Just got my LX-218, as soon as it came off the UPS truck, I could hear parts clanging inside the shipping container. Upon opening, I noticed the top loaded horn was completely broken apart. The Driver portion was just bouncing around and hitting other internal components, damaging them too. Since this model is now on back-order until june 2013, I decided to keep it, take it apart, and fix the broken horn. Upon dis-assembly I realized B-52 company should have added a support brace to the 4 pound horn driver that hangs on the end of the plastic horn throat. The plastic horn throat is cheap and thin ? I re-engineered a wooden support with padding, mounted it, as to, support the horn driver and secure the whole assembly with 2 cable ties to the wooden support. I'm sure this horn breakage has happened before on this B-52 LX-218 Model. The shipping container on this speaker should be double boxed and B-52 should do some additional engineering. Other than 7 hours of repair to get it going ... I truly love this speaker and laud B-52 for designing a speaker combination that really works ... the 18" driver is an expensive type as well as the horn driver and adequate crossover. The cabinet is huge and looks impressive as this is going to be a top to my bi-amped bottoms.

Good for the price

By Bobo Bonobo®

Comments about B-52 LX-218 18" 2-Way Loudspeaker:

We have 4 of them. Each pair is powered by one of our two Fender PA-135 tube amps. The whole setup is loud. Really loud.Essentially, each speaker is getting 135W peak tube watts, and since they're rated at 550W, that's about perfect. Yeah, they're bulky, but they're just the ticket for doing a small outdoor show.

Big Sound

Comments about B-52 LX-218 18" 2-Way Loudspeaker:

I bought a pair of the LX218 cabinets. I am very happy with the Big Sound. Clean and Loud these 18" low end speakers rock the place. I can haul them in my Toyota Rav no problem. B52 makes great cabinets.

I love them

Comments about B-52 LX-218 18" 2-Way Loudspeaker:

I've owned these speakers for three years now and they still rock the house. Crisp highs, smooth midrange and kick-a** bass. Don't let the price fool you these speakers are worth 3 times more I use a qsc plx 3402 to power these babies. Get you a pair you'll be happy you did.
