Product Code: SB118





 

Overview
The SB118 enclosure is a recommended subwoofer companion for the KUDO®, dV-DOSC, ARCS®, KIVA and XT systems, lowering the combined system operating range down to 32 Hz.

The SB118 contains a single 18’’ LF transducer integrated into a dual bass-reflex tuned enclosure. The specifically designed 18’’ transducer for the SB118 provides exceptional low thermal compression and reduced distortion even at the very highest operating levels. The dual bass-reflex design approach allows the SB118 to deliver both impact and high sensitivity factor. These combined properties contribute to the sonic qualities of the SB118 in terms of precision and musicality. Its compact size and associated tuning ratio combined with superior damping characteristics make it extremely well suited for coupled and multiple configurations. All these qualities combine to allow for ergonomic applications of acoustically optimized and non obtrusive FOH subwoofer systems. Packaged in a compact 2U lightweight format chassis, both the LA4 and LA8 platforms are derivative of the same basic design and share the following characteristics:

■The ‘‘standard’’ mode using SB118 as a companion to KUDO®, dV-DOSC, ARCS®, KIVA and featuring a low-pass filter at 60 Hz ([SB118_60] preset) or as a companion to dV-DOSC, ARCS® and XT with a low-pass filter at 100 Hz ([SB118_100] preset)
■The ‘‘cardioid’’ mode using SB118 as a companion to KUDO®, dV-DOSC, ARCS®, KIVA featuring a low-pass filter at 60 Hz ([SB118_60_C] preset) or a companion to dV-DOSC, ARCS® and XT with a low-pass filter at 100 Hz ([SB118_100_C] preset)

The performance of the SB118 enclosure depends upon the choice of preset and physical system configuration. Made of high grade Baltic birch plywood, the cabinet also features a pole mount socket for use with XT or two KIVA enclosures.
