d&b audiotechnik 18A Subwoofer

Description

The 18A-SUB is a compact high performance subwoofer for use with the xS-Series and xA-Series loudspeakers. The cabinet houses a long excursion 18″ neodymium driver in a bass-reflex design and it can be used stand-alone, stacked or as a base for a mixed ground stack. It can also be combined with 10A and 10AL loudspeakers in vertical flown arrays. The enclosure is constructed from marine plywood with an impact resistant black paint finish and is Ball Impact Resistant according to DIN 18032-3 for schools and sports halls. The front of the loudspeaker cabinet is protected by a rigid metal grill backed by an acoustically transparent foam. The side panels have an integrated rigging system and the rear panel incorporates two NL4 connectors as well as a two pole screw terminal block. The loudspeaker cabinets and most accessories are also available with the Special Colour (SC) option that can be executed in all RAL colours, whilst the Weather Resistant (WR) option provides an IP34 rating, and enables operation of loudspeakers in changing ambient conditions.
