The Cerwin-Vega AB-36C Afterburner speaker is a highly advanced design that incorporates Cerwin-Vega's 50 years of experience in building some of the industry's best-known subwoofers. Its design makes it ideal for use in the most demanding environments where pure bass power is the goal, such as installations, live sound, mobile DJs, and club applications.

With 6-1/2' of folded horn chamber length in the cabinet, the AB-36C Folded Horn Subwoofer has bass frequency extension similar to a 36" driver with even more SPL performance. The AB-36C features Stroker Technology for increased power handling, decreased distortion, and radial cooling fins. A striking die-cast door has improved heat dissipation capabilities and sports a Stroker 18 metal badge. In addition, the curved horn mouth bracing provides a smoother frequency response and the enhanced front corner bracing offers extra durability.

Comments about Cerwin-Vega AB-36C Afterburner 18" Folded Horn Subwoofer Speaker:

UNBELEIVABLE PRODUCT! This sub does not compare to anything else I have used. From smaller venues to a large hall (2500 plus people) 1 pair of these do the job of 4-5 pairs of 18" front loaded cabs and sound even better! Pros: Can handle almost anything and kick harder, sound better, clearer and have good looks, easy setup. Cons: They are big, heavy and hard to load alone even with wheels. Must have enough power, a bridged amp with min 600-800 watts per speaker. Don't skimp on power here. An excellent product from a reputable company known for sound. A great choice!
