High-quality sound and tour durability.

The Electro-Voice TX2181 Tour-X is a dual subwoofer system that is designed to add high-output, high-impact bass response to the EV TX2152 loudspeaker system.

The 18" TX2181 subwoofer can move tremendous amounts of air, thanks to dual EVS-18S high-excursion woofers, a well-braced enclosure, and a low-distortion port design. The EVS-18S woofers feature a 4-layer voice coils and cast frames for high power handling and maximum durability. The Electro-Voice TX2181 is designed to be used with a processor and a dedicated amplifier channel in a biamp configuration.

The TX2181 Tour-X has many features that make it a versatile subwoofer system. The enclosure is constructed out of a combination of MDF and plywood, and coated with EVCoat for maximum strength and durability. The unique grille design is very strong, dent resistant, and features a rotatable logo. Four way handles allow for gripping in a variety of positions. The recessed input panel with dual NL4 connectors keep the connectors hidden and allows for closer placement to a wall or other boundary. It is the same width and height as the TX2152, providing a single column appearance when stacked, and uses the minimum amount of space when stored or transported. Mounting points on the rear of the enclosure allow the optional TX-W1 wheel kit to be attached for easy portability.

Features
  • Dual 18" Direct-Radiating
  • Dual EVS-18S 18" (457mm) LF transducers
  • 103dB sensitivity, 138dB maximum SPL
  • 1000W continuous, 4000W peak power handling

Great subs for the money

Comments about Electro-Voice TX2181 Tour-X Dual 18" Subwoofer:

We just took these out of the box today for a corporate show and they sounded phenominal! We are running these with a Crown XTi4002 amp and Mackie 1530 tops. I dont know what the low reviews are all about, but we tuned these up and they freakin' KICKED!! The low end was so punchy and defined. Just perfect. A word to the wise, tuning these bad boys is paramount. If you dont know what you are doing, get a pro to tune them up and you will totally be impressed.
We bought them with kevlar covers and wheel boards for easy load in/out.
First impression is great. They feel good so far. Now, I cannot speak for ruggedness yet, but we do 50 shows a year and will put these suckers to the test. I will try and update as we gain experience.
Great boom for the buck when mated with a good quality amp.

TX2181 Tour-X Dual 18" Subwoofer

By Lurch Rudyk

from Pittsburgh

Comments about Electro-Voice TX2181 Tour-X Dual 18" Subwoofer:

Low value !
Ev Tour X subs are just Ok the components are cheaper quality than anything EV I have ever known or used I was disappointed and will try to look for a American Made product that has more of a scene of pride in it's work.The way EV was before the surrendered to building Junk made in China.The company makes tripple the profits closing plants here and the result is garbage while still flying the brand colours beware ! The cabent quality is also weak and at approx $1000 Per piece EV is doing far better than the end user a horrible trend that is becoming the norm in pro audio sadly.Shipping out all manufacturing to China and in return a total compromise in quality to the point where the brand can not be trusted or known for quality,.Shame on you EV .If you are out there looking for a good sub look to a North American cabinet maker look for a builder as I am sure you would do better the JBL or Ev Lines sold at music stores , are now generally all JUNK! The magnet size of the 18s and power handling does not appear to be up to snuff either.The components are generally kinda weak and look like they would do well in a house of worship over a rock show or in a club!Check out SLS Subs or Adamson some one who still seems to put quality onto their products.Other local builder if any are left in your area! 2 of Ours blew up the first month .

BEWARE

By THOMAS ANGARANO

Comments about Electro-Voice TX2181 Tour-X Dual 18" Subwoofer:

Electrovoice won't even stand behind them and take them back for a refund.
SHAME ON YOU ELECTROVOICE.
Do not buy these subs. They are advertised as touring grade subwoofers. I had problems and was told by EV tech support that they were cosmetically altered Eliminators. They cannot even handle 1000 watts rms. their voice coils are 2.5 inches,
I cannot believe EV would do such a terrible thing. This is a clear case of false advertising.
If they aren't Tour grade cabs, then why are they called Tour-X?
cannot handle any wattage like a tour grade sub
They would be priced right if they were not Eliminators.

VERY DISAPPOINTED

By THOMAS ANGARANO

from FLORIDA

Comments about Electro-Voice TX2181 Tour-X Dual 18" Subwoofer:

I gave a terrible rating because
DO NOT BUY THESE SUBS. THEY CANNOT HANDLE KICK DRUM PUNCH. IT CAUSES THEM TO EXPERIENCE OVER EXCURSION AND THE CONES START TO FLAP REAL BAD. I HAVE THERM LOW PASSED AT 100HZ AND HIGH PASSED T 30HZ. I ALSO USE A COMPRESSOR LIKE I HAVE ALWAYS USED AND EVEN TRYING TO TWEAK THE EQ AND COMPRESSOR, IT ONLY STOPS AFTER ALL SUB SOUND IS ELIMINATED DEFEATING THE PURPOSE OF HAVING THE SUBS. MY DUAL 18 EV SUBS RATED AT 400 WATTS RMS SOUND WAY BETTER. THESE ARE RATED AT 1000 WATTS RMS AND SHOULD KICK THE CRAP OUT OF THOSE.
I HAVE CONTACTED EV WITH THE PROBLEM AND WILL REPORT BACK.
The cabinet quality is excellent, hence the rating. The sound quality is unusable.
I've seen cheaper subs sound way better
