I've been around JBL speaker set ups for years and used 2241/2242 18's. These are much smaller and lighter than any Ive used before, the double 18 is even smaller and lighter than some custom sub bottoms from the past. I drive 2 SRX718 with an XTI4000 bridged mono at 4 ohms and they sound great. They are used under PRX535 and tied together with a DBX drive rack. They can cover most small clubs we play with a well balanced sound overall and also DJ with this rig and it kicks. May add a second pair in the future but feel they will also need another XTI4000 to make them sound best.You don't want to clip an amp,make sure you have plenty of headroom. You will not be disappointed if used correctly and with in reason
I own two JBL SRX718S with 2 bridged Behringer EP-2500 amps, an old Bi-amp cross-over and DBX EQs. I have heard systems with double the power and price. They don't compare to the quality and headroom these JBLs have in a live bar or club. The best part of these speakers is the quality representation of sound with more then enough head room (3200 watts!!). I can push the EP-2500s, and never blow the JBLs!!! I have more bass then I can imagine ever having with these subs. For the price and quality of the JBL SRX line, nothing beats it. Hands down.
I use a pair of EV Sx500 speakers for any event requiring amplified audio. They are the most versatile PA cab I've used, and produce excellent sound. On two occasions I needed extra bass punch that sounded good enough to use with the EVs, so I rented a pair of the SX718S. Despite my non-ideal amp situation (connected in parallel to a bridge Mackie 1400i), these speakers produced good, solid, musical bass that reached very low frequencies. They are plenty loud enough for small-to-medium venues. In both cases, the audience was in an approx. 400 square foot space in front of the speakers, and sound levels were more than sufficient.I put quality at 4.5 because, despite the otherwise great sound, at high volumes and low frequencies, the speaker exhibits a lot of port noise, and I managed to bottom the cones out with some of the soggy bass found in rap music. However, this did not damage the speaker.These cabinets are very compact and pack well in a pickup truck. They are also very lightweight, and the foam-backed grill gives this cabinet a dressy appearance. I will likely purchase a set of these, and eventually a proper amplifier to push them. I haven't auditioned every subwoofer at this price point, but nothing I've heard comes close. To put it simply: I've found this to be the ideal, small-to-medium venue portable subwoofer.
I am a DJ who has two of these subs and they are great I power them with QSC Powerwave 3002 Amps Bridged one amp per sub and they bump, no bottoming out and I run them at loud volumes most times 5 hrs. straight.I play mostly Rap,R&B, Detroit Techno and House Music. I use dbx processing units for limiting,crossover and equalization. I have no complaint's they are worth the extra bucks. Perfect Sub for small to medium size venues.
I've been a foh sound tech for almost ten years now, and I have delt with all of the big brands of speakers. EAW, Peavey, Bose, but the best I have found is JBL! I rented 6 of these for a concert I sponsered. 4 for the mains and two for side fills.I Powered them up with six crown ce4000 and was completely BLOWN away! The quality of the sound was amazing. There was two thousand people there and the people in the back could feel the BASS thumping in there chest!!!! I plan on buying this rig for my company!
I have four of these subs. I drive them with a Crown XTI4000. At 8 ohms or 4 ohms (pair) per side they'e clean and chest thumping. A single sub with two JBL 712 satellites is full an resounding in the pubs, (ala Bose home stereo sytems); while all four 718s with JBL 722s crank in the big rooms and the courtyard venues. Its versatile, easy to move (i.e. one man can set up two pair), and move mass volumes of air. I disagree with the "soggy bass" review. These cabinets are just amazing.
- Great tone
- Solid build
These are great Subs !!..No doubt at all !!...I own 8 of them and simply bring to the gig what I need...Two (2) can do a crowded Bar & Small Club nicely...Four (4) can do an outdoor event and all 8 can deliver plenty of bottom to a big outdoor event...Easy to move around...I use these with a combination of JBL VRX932 and SRX722 tops in a 2 way system with Crown 8000's and 6000's Amps...I use the Dbx Drive Rack and then tweak as I need to...These are the overall best I have ever owned based on performance and versatility....No more Double 18's to lug around....
- Was this a gift?:
I have one of these subs and 2 of the SRX712M's. It takes a system with twice as many speakers to compete with me. SRX series are loud and this single sub will almost take anything you can throw at it. I'm pushing it with a bridged yamaha P7000s amp and I can crank up the volume and the speaker never distorts, amazing!
I own 3 of these SRX718S ...I do sound support and the lightweight of the Single 18 is the way to go...Double 18's are a bit too heavy to swing around.....I can put 2 of these in my Toyota Matrix....I just stack up what I need for the gig....1 or 2 is usually enough...The 3rd one is a centerfill ...What a kick...
Features are great....Power and Sound are awesome...I gave it a 9 rather than a 10 since the Pole mount is a special screw-in type; therefore you have to purchase the unique JBL pole rather than a generic.
The usual HIGH QUALITY of a JBL....Nice Shiiping Container too.
I bought this when Musicians Friend had a "sale"; therefore I got a really good deal....Value is fantastic when you consider that this is a top of the line sub...Great Punch !
Unless you have the money to fork over some serious bucks for an EAW, this is your best bet. They Yamaha is to boomy and large. Behringer is a Joke. Mackie is ok but doesn't sound right. The MPro box sounds good buck lacks a certain feeling.
