OVERVIEW

74 pounds of pumping bass.

The Peavey PV 118 Single 18" Subwoofer is a compact, vented subwoofer system using an 18" heavy-duty woofer with a 3" voice coil and a 65-oz. magnet. The black, perforated steel grille and steel corners provide protection and a professional appearance, and the sturdy steel handles allow ease of transport. A top polemount for 1-3/8" stand poles is incorporated and can be connected in parallel for daisy-chaining or to send a full-range signal to a P.A. cabinet. The impressive 400W program power rating allows plenty of gut-pounding bass. The internal low-pass crossover network, along with the vented enclosure, provides great bass response that will add the thump you desire.

Purchased 3 months ago to add some bottom to the PA set up. I power them with the QSC GX5. I used a 15 band EQ with a built in crossover and they add just the right amount of low end. Really helps to bring out the Kick drum. We play classic rock and 80's stuff and they work great in the mix. Allows us to bring the stage volume down a bit with a direct box on the bass.I used them in a medium hall 300-350 people and a concrete floor. I didn't over power them and it worked well. These are not meant to fill a 500 seat club but if you play in the local bars with 150 -250 folks, they will do just fine. I use the pole extensions and mount my Yamaha speakers on top. Saves room and allows you to put them in tight spaces. Get the right amp and crossover and you will be pleased. Push them outside of the limits and you will smoke them as with most speakers.

Well let me say that I hate it when people bash on equipment that I know works well, so let me just point out a few things.The Good and bad:Good- Very reliable as long as you follow the power rating.Bad- Don't try to put too much power in because they will blow without a warning.Bad-The carpet instantly started peeling off all over, the glue and carpet they are made of is cheep. They start to look bad very quickly.Good- They can take a little fall off a hand truck and survive. The sound is not a deep bass sound more a hollow thud but does the job for a smaller/medium sized room. I use them in rooms that hold about 150 and they get the job done. Looking back I would step up to the SP series but for the money this is still a solid deal.

Chinese craftsmanship

By Senior Rocker

from Undisclosed

See all my reviews

Comments about Peavey PV 118 Single 18" Subwoofer:

I bought 2 of these after reading the great comments from people. I modified the input plate to allow bypass of the onboard low pass filter. When I opened it up, one of the 118s was wired out of phase, there were a handfull of staples clinging to the magnet, and half of the screws holding on the input plate were overtorqued and the screw holes were stripped.These things are not acceptable in ANY speaker enclosure no matter what the brand or price range!

Died after a couple months!

By Neobrite

Comments about Peavey PV 118 Single 18" Subwoofer:

I used this sub as part of a small band practice PA system. We played decently loud, but nothing that should have ever blown anything. But for some reason, the speaker is literally brand new and it won't work anymore. I believe the electronics in the internal low-pass crossover failed. It's a real disappointment. Now I have to spend more money to fix or replace it. I wish I didn't waste my money on this.

    Comments about Peavey PV 118 Single 18" Subwoofer:

    Have had mine for years now and with the proper crossovers and equipment they will work for years without problems. They give out awesome bass response for both DJ/Live Band setup as long as you know how to set up for a room. LOOK IT UP! if you don't. Anyhow, recommend to anyone on a budget that wants quality products.

    Comments about Peavey PV 118 Single 18" Subwoofer:

    Wow. this thing is killing me. I've gotten the crossover on it fixed once already. Today it just failed again. What a piece of junk. My band was suppose to practice for some big shows coming up and now we will have to deal with having no bass!!! This thing might just end up as a coffee table...Cause I'm not sure if I feel like paying to get it fixed again...

    Defective Wire Connection

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Peavey PV 118 Single 18" Subwoofer:

    Sub's main use is for kick drum. The sub quit working several weeks after purchase. I was told by the dealer that the internal connecting wires actually pull loose from the cone due to the movement generated by a kick drum. The entire speaker was replaced in mine. So far so good.

    Comments about Peavey PV 118 Single 18" Subwoofer:

    I bought a pair of these subs and have compared them to my Behringer Subs that are rated similar in power. I say that the Behringers have a short throw thump sound and these are long throw. In other words, you feel the thump on these subs from a longer distance and wont feel it up close. I have 2 power amps with more then sufficient power to max these out and I observed the aforementioned walking away from these subs. I do recommend these, but dont expect a thump upclose.

      I Bought one for my church's mobile system. They sound really good. Good punch. Nothing woofy. Provides a really good sound. I will say though I have a really good amplifier powering one in bridge mode: Crown powertech 3.1. Since then, I have purchased a few more of these for larger venues. Use a good amplifier with good damping factor, a good 2:1 ratio in wattage, good calibration, you are good to go. And it was cheap too!

      from Richmond, VA

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Peavey PV 118 Single 18" Subwoofer:

      If this sub had speakon connections it would get all 5's. I normally run two of these with a crown 402D matched with 2 Kustom Dual 15's on a crown xs500. I have done hip-hop and soul venues with 250-300 people easy with 3/4 full power. these subs give very tight controlled bass. no complaints at all and they are not to heavy to move. Very sturdy handles and I just drop my dual 15" cabinets wieghing 95 pounds each right on top. If you have the money get a crown 602 or 802 to push these. I will be shortly. The headroom is good to have. but I must say the 402 is a workhorse too.

      By Dallas Enterprises

      Comments about Peavey PV 118 Single 18" Subwoofer:

      Bought a pair of these with a pair or pr12's the pv 118's have good bass but within the first week of owning them they bottomed out easily with a pv2600 to the point of one is dead and the other buzz's like crazy. Didn't even push them that hard! I'm not happy right now. Id happily would spend the money for any brand that will perform what I need. I guess these ain't the one's

      Can't find a better bargain for an 18 !!

      Comments about Peavey PV 118 Single 18" Subwoofer:

      No speakons, but for under 500watt rms, you just don't need them. 1/4" ins, crossover, compact... that's all I need. I hate when someone asks me what these cost, cause they look and sound like so much more. These things really pound for a medium or semi-large rooms. If you purchase any of those cheap brand speakers that sound like junk, then smoke when you put power to them (that's if they even work when you get them), when Peavey is putting out this stuff for this price, you need your head examined.

      wish there was a half star between good and excellant...a pair of these added "GREAT" bottom end when paired with a QSC GX3 amp to a pair of PV 215's powered by a QSC GX5...not as heavy and bulky as the SP's and my back appreciates that :-)

      Not bad

      By Some Dude-Cmnea

      from Cali.

      Comments about Peavey PV 118 Single 18" Subwoofer:

      Not a bad little sub if you do not have a very big room to fill with sound. I have ours hooked to a Crown xls 202 pushing 200 watts @ 8 ohms and I have a hard time keeping it from clipping. I do not know everything about speakers but I would have to say that this woofer is running at about 150 watts rms. If I push it any harder than that the thing starts popping and the red lights start flashing. We are a church. Not a disco. We don't need red lights flashing! hehehe...

      You need a lot of power to get good bass from these. With the right amp, they deliver the bass. Can't believe they are so inexpensive.

      Great Low End at a Great Low Price

      Comments about Peavey PV 118 Single 18" Subwoofer:

      I had a portable sound system that was in serious need of low-end. These cabinets were a brand new item when I first saw them and I ordered them on the spot. I liked the size, weight, and price, but I was a little concerned about the quality of the sound. When I did try them out, they made all the difference in the world in my sound. I haven't had to push them very hard, but for small venues and clubs, they are great for the money.

      Best Inexpensive sub I've found!

      By Black Lighting

      from New Hampshire

      Comments about Peavey PV 118 Single 18" Subwoofer:

      After LOTS of research, I decided to try these, in my last band we had VERY expensive speakers, so I knew it would be hard to please me....These are AWESOME! We've been using one pair with Sp5's, just switched to Sp2's & Double 15" subs, these still kick more than the double 15's...I think if I had it to do over I would just but 2 pair of these, also, my band goes direct into the PA (no amps) so they really have to deliver the bas & kick drum...they do!

      Comments about Peavey PV 118 Single 18" Subwoofer:

      My band bought two of these and a qsc rmx 1450 power amp. We use the mono bridge option on the power amp, which pushes 1400 watts at 4 ohms. The speakers can handle 800 watts peak a piece, and at a little past half volume on the gain we have had no problems. Would be nice to have speakon connectors, but other than that the quality is good and they are accually light enough that one average size person can carry one without any help.
