Peavey Versarray 118 Sub 18" Subwoofer
The black Peavey Versarray 118 Sub is a direct radiator vented subwoofer designed specifically for demanding pro audio applications. The Lo Max 18" driver has a 2400W program rating and extra-long cone excursion that add up to excellent levels of clean, deep bass. The driver features field-replaceable basket, Kevlar impregnated cone for increased strength and lower distortion due to greater dampening of excess cone vibrations, polyimide-impregnated fiberglass former for higher sensitivity and frequency response, die-cast aluminum frame, and a 4" diameter edge-wound voice coil with solderless diffusion welded OFHC copper leads. Primarily designed for professional touring and permanent installation, the Versarray 118 Sub is suitable for the bass end of virtually any high performance sound system.
The subwoofer's cabinet is constructed of premium 13-ply Baltic birch plywood and is finished with a tough acrylic polyurethane paint, for good looks and durability. A 16-gauge powder-coated perforated metal grille covers the front of the system to protect the speakers from external damage. The cabinet is well braced and very stiff, as internal pressures produced by the driver can be very high. The vent design integrated into the enclosure includes a middle brace to further increase enclosure stiffness. The subwoofer's large vent area and long path length allow for a large volume of air to move with very low resistance. This is important due to the huge airflow volumes that the Lo Max 18" driver can produce. Each cabinet side wall and vent wall are tied together at multiple points using multiple interlocking girdle braces, which makes the enclosure sturdy.
Input connection to the system is provided via two 4-pin Neutrik jacks in parallel, or an 8-pin Neutrik jack. A 4-pin Neutrik thru jack is provided for bi-amping flexibility while maintaining superior signal integrity. The inclusion of a standard 4-pin Neutrik jack in parallel for the main inputs allows for daisy chaining to another cabinet. A pole tunnel is built-in so that a Versarray specific pole (not included) can be used to pole mount up to two Versarray 112 modules above the Versarray 118 Sub.
The Versarray 118 Sub generates high sound pressure levels (SPLs) and accepts up to 2400W of clean amplifier program power, resulting in large area coverage with excellent punch and high reliability.
