Oxnard, Calif.-based L-Acoustics U.S. will debute its new SB118 high-power subwoofer at this year's NSCA Expo, booth #2705. Developed to complement all of the company's loudspeaker systems--including dV-DOSC, MTD and XT--the SB118 features a single 18-inch transducer loaded in a dual-chamber, vented bandpass configuration. Boasting a power handling capacity of 600 watts RMS (2,400 watts peak) and response down to 32 Hz, the new subwoofer is designed for applications that require exceptional low-end impact from a highly compact, low-profile enclosure.

For permanent installation, the SB118's compact dimensions (17.4x31.5x32.3 inches, HxWxD) provide a high degree of flexibility for applications where space is at a premium. The SB118 cabinet is constructed of 18- and 24mm Baltic birch plywood (with sealed, screwed and rabbeted angles, and internally braced) and equipped with a black-epoxy perforated steel grille with acoustically transparent foam. Rear-panel connections are 4-pin Neutrik Speakons.

Engineered for high-performance DJ, mobile, club, regional, touring and installed sound reinforcement, the optimally reduced front dimensions of the SB118 allow for the creation of compact-sized subwoofer arrays with minimum footprints. The SB118 is highly suitable for FOH use in theaters, clubs or multipurpose venues, and provides an excellent solution for corporate events. Standard are a built-in polemount socket that allows the user to create a compact FOH system when used with L-Acoustic's MTD, XT and other similar enclosures.

When combined with the manufacturer's 115FM floor monitor or MTD/XT systems, the SB118 can be used for stage-monitoring applications such as keyboard, sidefill or drumfill monitoring.

OEM factory presets for digital processors, such as BSS FDS-366 and Soundweb, and XTA DP224 and DP226, are available when used in conjunction with the XT line and other L-Acoustics products.
