The SXP118 is a compact, high-performance subwoofer that extends the low frequency operating range of a CDD-LIVE full-range system to 40Hz — providing exceptional low frequency impact and increasing headroom. It features a long-excursion 18” (460mm)/4” (100 mm) voice coil driver with a water-resistant cone and triple roll surround in a compact reflex enclosure. The design of the 18” driver maximises output while minimising power compression and distortion, and the four reflex ports have a large frontal area to reduce turbulent air noise at very high levels.

With a maximum SPL capability of 135dB peak at 1 metre, the SXP118 is the ideal subwoofer for theatre and portable live sound applications, as well as premium installations that require the maximum output from a compact enclosure. A self-powered system, the SXP118 incorporates a Class D amplifier, DSP and Dante™ digital audio networking — simplifying set-up, enhancing control and eliminating amplifier racks. The onboard amplifier delivers 2000W peak output to the driver, and its switched-mode power supply autoranges to global mains voltages from 100 to 240V 50/60Hz. DSP functions — including parametric EQ, delay, muting, gain and preset selection — can be controlled over Ethernet from a PC or Windows® tablet via intuitive VUNET™ proprietary software.
For simple set-ups, ‘plug-and-play’ presets for operation with the CDD-LIVE 8, 12 or 15 — as well as a user-defined preset — can be selected on the rear panel, instead of using computer control. Additional presets provide the appropriate settings for the rear-facing subwoofer in a cardioid pair. As an alternative to its analogue inputs, the SXP118 is Dante enabled for digital audio distribution and control over a single CAT5 cable to maintain audio quality however long the cable run. The enclosure is constructed from multi-laminate plywood with a durable polyurea coating and equipped with a perforated Zintec grille, twin grab handles, skids, M10 flying inserts and a threaded pole socket. By adding the input board cover accessory, the subwoofer is fully weather resistant and suitable for permanent outdoor usage.
