OVERVIEW

Bluetooth connectivity and ultra-low frequency response.

Put some audiophile-quality bass enhancement into your PA system with the Fortis F-18SUB powered subwoofer from Fender. With a 1000-watt Class-D amplifier under the hood, this workhorse delivers thundering, tight low end with unbelievable accuracy and clarity that your audience will feel. Thanks to its massive 18” woofer, the Fortis F-18SUB cranks out up to 134dB of solid, thumping bass all the way down to 30Hz.

The Fortis F-18SUB’s build is just as solid as its punch, boasting a 9-ply, void-free plywood enclosure that is made to withstand demanding professional use. Its recessed steel-bar handles simplify transport and integrated hardware gives you the option to easily add casters.

Two balanced ¼ in. XLR combo jacks feed two input channels, while the integrated crossover with multiple presets makes it easy to find the right sound for any room. Two input channels allow you to sum a stereo signal, easily feeding a single subwoofer, and the outputs pass the signal through to the full-range speakers. Bluetooth connectivity adds versatility and flexibility.

Comments about Fender Fortis F-18SUB 18" Subwoofer:

I've been looking to increase my low end for quite some time now, looking at all kinds of different subs and reading reviews. I've dealt with Fender guitars and amps for several years and loved those products so when MF had a great price on these I decided to take the chance and I'm glad I did. I now have that low end I've been looking for!!! They sound great and clear so far but I've not had them long and only listen to them in my house. I've not had a chance to gig with them but my hopes are very high. I probably could have gotten away with just one but like they say, "If one is good, two will be great!" Glad I got both. I am a performing musician/singer and also DJ and karaoke. These will fit in nicely.

Bought this to go with my fender passport to add low and overall volume when playing larger outdoor venues and events. Now it super loud.

Comments about Fender Fortis F-18SUB 18" Subwoofer:

This is a great sounding sub. Amazing sound quality that is precise and not muddy. It replaces a Carvin LS1801A and demonstrates far superior sound quality to the Carvin . The downside is that the speaker grill rattles when pushed hard with electronic sub frequencies. Despite the rattle, the sound quality of this product is incredible with great bass extension.

Comments about Fender Fortis F-18SUB 18" Subwoofer:

Excellent build quality. Covered with durable coating that feels a bit like sandpaper. I bought 2 on sale for a 26 x 26 listening are and they are total overkill. Made for larger venues. Note that they only put out 500W RMS, 1000W peak.
