Powertful, chest-thumping bass for a very nice price!
Designed by touring sound veterans, the Tapco 6918s 18-inch Passive Subwoofer delivers huge levels of powerful bass at an affordable price, making it the perfect foundation for your live sound system.
When you're ready to step up to a real PA system, Tapco's Series 69 Loudspeakers deliver. Designed by touring sound veterans, these professional-quality passive speakers are the perfect foundation for your concert sound system. For maximum portability, they are made as compact as possible without sacrificing performance or efficiency. Series 69 Loudspeakers give you premium drivers, PVC vinyl-covered wood enclosures, and custom-molded thermoplastic edge bumpers.
Exceptional Sonic Performance
In designing the Series 69 passive speakers, Tapco called upon the loudspeaker experts at EAW to develop the most affordable and compact speakers possible without compromising sound quality or response. Each is made to withstand the rigors of the road--particularly the high output and amazing accuracy demanded nightly by discriminating audiences. Professional 1", high-output compression drivers ensure pristine high-end attack, while Mackie-designed vented woofers generate huge levels of chest-pounding bass in any venue.
Built Like A Tank
Beyond their amazing performance, these professional tone monsters are also designed to withstand the punishment of the road. Series 69 speakers are made with multi-ply Baltic birch wood--not cheap plastic or shoddy particleboard. The entire acoustic chamber is made of wood, giving it the best possible response, extended low frequency output and no annoying rattles or vibrations that plague competing speakers over time. Custom molded protective edge bumpers make sure roadies can't damage your speakers or your ride. And say goodbye to ugly rat fur covering--Series 69 speakers are cased in durable PVC vinyl, so they'll survive the inevitable bumps and bruises of rigorous touring.
The 6918s passive subwoofer features a built-in low-pass filter, which automatically lets low frequencies through while stopping high frequencies from expending the driver's energy. No need to buy, wire up and configure complicated external crossovers--this perfect subwoofer is optimized to deliver nothing but pure, thumping bass right out of the box. Save your money for gas and vitamins.
Protecting Your Investment
To prevent your speakers from heat damage, Tapco installed a protection circuit for the high frequency driver. If the overload sensor is tripped, the protection circuit reduces power to the driver. When the unit cools to a safe level, the circuit resets and normal operation resumes. This keeps your speakers running at optimal levels, preserving their rich sound for a lifetime of enjoyment.
Professional Components for Professional Sound
For Series 69, Tapco tested the highest quality components before installing them to ensure steadfast reliability and unparalleled value. Speakon and 1/4" TS inputs were incorporated for maximum connection flexibility and daisy chaining multiple speakers. Series 69 is perfect for a variety of sound applications, from DJ rigs to rehearsal studios to medium-sized clubs or outdoor concerts. Their compact design means zero strain during transport, whether mounting them on a high pole or loading up the van. Series 69 consists of four models to serve a wide variety of live sound applications.
- Premium Mackie-designed woofers and compression drivers
- PVC vinyl covered, multi-ply birch wood enclosures with protective edge bumpers
- Most compact portable cabinet designs in their class
- Speakon and 1/4" TS inputs

Heard a pair of these along with a pair of 18" subs in folded cabinets at a dance for only 40 to 50 people, which was WAY TOO MUCH for the venue, but I Was blown away by how much these subs put out alone (rumor is one of the folded cabinet's subs blew out.) Tempted to buy one for my Yamaha tops along with an EP2500 amplifier
I've got two subs hooked up to the 6925's and they're great. The low end sound is incredible. The built in crossover is nice feature to have too. I've actually got one eq for 25's and separate eq for the subs. I just dropped the high frequencies out and mix the low's in and I've got a great sound. Tapco definitely did these right. I'm somewhat surprised they're priced the same as the Behringer subs because they are way better and sound much deeper.
... after reading the praises that were heaped on it from the electronic drum community. We needed more bottom for his Roland V-Drums for live performance. The unit arrived double boxed, sealed and appeared to be in good physical shape. However, when we hooked it up to the amplifier... NO SIGNAL... we tested it on several different amplifiers, all the connections, wires and repeated three times... NO SIGNAL... we called tech support, gave him a list of the equipment we'd used and how we tested it... he had no answers other than to say the Crest amp we were using was what it was designed to be driven by. Right now, we're stuck with a hefty shipping bill to return this to the manufacturer... that's not covered by the warranty and the band as a whole is pretty down on Mackie and Tapco. Drummer commented that at least our Behringer equipment works.
I have two of these. Initially I just had one, and it was alright, but once I got the second the difference was incredible. These things can hit hard and sustain bass well too. I have a crossover with a sonic maximizer in my processing chain, but all-in-all, these things are great for the price and two of them take you a long way.
For some people, the built in crossover is good, but the cutoff isn't very sharp and it leaves a lot of muddy frequency in there. If you run it through a crossover and set the right X-over freq, then you'll get a nice tight sound. Do like that it has both speakon and 1/4" connectors too.
Built solid out of birch. Coating is scratch prone but what isn't?
EAW designed at this price? Need I say more?
These are great subs for any band on the road. We use them and they sound great, the tapco amps are pretty good also! They do scratch easily also, but for the price you can't complain...Great speakers over all in my book!
My band purchased this sub to add some bottom end to our sound and it does just that. I recently got a set of drum mics and our 15 inch mains couldn't handle the bass drum mic. This sub is well built with birch cabinets instead of cheap fiberboard and it was desinged by mackie which is always a good thing. We took this sub into my basement to test it out and it had my windows rattling in no time.
