Integral hardware makes for easy rigging inline arrays.
The VRX918S is a compact, high power suspendable subwoofer system containing a 2268H neodymium magnet, patented Differential Drive, 18" woofer in a front-loaded, vented enclosure. The VRX918S was designed specifically for use with the VRX932LA Line Array speaker and VRX-AF Array Frame. In addition it may also be used in setups consisting entirely of VRX918S subwoofers.
The subwoofer system offers complete input connection flexibility for compatibility with a variety of cabling schemes. A recessed, external switch allows selection of either contacts +1/-1 or +2/-2.
Equally at home in ground stacked applications, the VRX918S speaker is equipped with a top-mounted, threaded, 20 mm socket that can receive the optional SS4-BK pole. This adjustable height pole can be used to mount speakers equipped with standard 35 mm pole sockets and weighing up to 50 kg (100 lb). The threaded socket minimizes buzzing and rattling and assures that the pole will be secure and straight.
The VRX918S enclosure is constructed of top quality birch plywood, coated in JBL's rugged DuraFlexTM finish and is heavily braced to maximize low- frequency performance. The attractive CNC-machined, 16-gauge steel grille is internally lined with acoustically transparent foam to provide additional driver protection and give a very professional appearance. The rear of the speaker enclosure is fitted with T-nuts which may be used to attach the optional WK-4 caster kit.

Comments about JBL VRX918S 18" High Power Passive Flying Subwoofer:
I have squandered the last 30 years of my life playing around with 10", 12", and 15" passive and powered subwoofers. My goal was to find the very BEST subwoofer for music listening AND movies. I bought this VRX918S, I power it with a two-thousand watt Crest power amp. Bass is Superior! Sound is Superior! The patented voice coil on this puppy and it's Line-Array style makes this subwoofer perfect for the Professional Sound Engineer OR the home Audiophile and Music Lover. If you want your bottom-end to be tight, accurate, and perfect, buy this and drive it with as much power as you can afford. For Home users, you can order this sub in White, or what JBL calls the Architectural series: No holes for speakers-on-sticks and no side-handles on the cabinet. The Architectural series DOES come with all of the Line Array hardware so that it can be added to an array, if desired.
