Our band purchased 2 of these last year, and we're far from disappointed. Not as pricey as a Mackie or other high-end subs...they get the job done! Period! I play a double kick, "miked in", and our bassist is "miked in" as well. The clarity, punch, thump, and definition is there. We power ours with a QSC 2450 amp. With the pole mount we stage our Peavey SP-3's above them powered by yet another QSC 2450. The sound is incredible. Don't waiste hard earned cash on wonna-be's like Beringer or Nady's...they don't even come close!!!
For small to medium venues a pair of these subs will rock the house! I run a seperate Crown amp to each and have never had them break up or choke. Great sub for the money, been using SP's since the 70's.
These subs, combined with Peavey's SP5 main speakers, are the best place for any band to start. They provide more than enough sound to fill most venues you play when you're just starting out. Haven't had any problems, glad we went with Peavey.
These are great for small venues but when you start talking about medium to large venues I would recomend the SP2118 for some serious sound.
I have to say that after playing for a few years on different house P.A.'s, playing in a band that swore by the JBL SR series, and myself owning 6 Peavey SP118 subs, I am still a firm believer in good old American tech. Thanks Hartley for the great cabinets, and I highly recommend the SP series for working bands. The "18's" are solid, tight, and have delivered years of service for me. They have better definition than most of the competitors brands, and "bang for the buck" is not out of line. I have yet to replace a woofer, or even a fuse, and we drive them very hard. Especially when it gets late and everyone wants it louder! I also like the fact that there is little tone distortion even when driven by heavy synth sounds which often clip other subs. Tis my humble opinion that Peavey has a winner here.
The Sp118 is a semipro enclosure, meaning for a medium sized show, 3 or 4 on either side of the stage would suffice. Buyer beware!! Do NOT use these cabinets with cheap amplifiers! I had a behringer ep2500 (God knows why) and ran these subs with it. Horrible. Use a Crown ce4000 or a macrotech. Difference is night and day. I cross mine at 80-85 Hz.
I use one of these with a pair of powered Peavey PR12 tops. The SP118 is powered by a Mackie 1400i. The sound is phenomenal...the best I've heard in a while. Sound guys and gals rave about JBLs and Mackies, but are amazed to hear how loud this baby gets - without distortion.What I like best is that it looks heavy but is not. I can lift this sub, take up and down a flight of stairs with no worries. PLUS, it has built in casters.This is definitely a great sub, just make sure you have enough amplifier juice to push it.
This sub is a great product for the price tag. I have mine paired with two way 15" cabs and the system sounds great. Construction is solid and they are road worthy speakers.
I was just running one SP118 for a while and decided to buy a second. I needed more juice in these so Musicians Friend hooked me up with a PLX3402 amp. I'm set the amp to bridge mono and connected both subs to it to get a good 4ohm signal. With my DBX compressor and DBX X-over (set a little below 100) these babies are so awesome.I highly recommend these speakers to any DJ who is looking for that nice low end sound. BUT, you need a good x-over and compressor so the subs won't die on you.
I run a very large production company and I use many subwoofers in my work. We do not use these subwoofers however my church uses these for our youth program, and honestly they sound very boomy and nasty to me. They seriously lack the tight "punchiness" that comes with higher quality subwoofers. My church can't afford anything better and so they do o.k. for what they're used for however if you can afford better buy better, because you are not getting a deal on these.
