Powered, 1000 W (Cont.) / 2000W (Peak), 18" Flyable/Stackable Front Loaded Subwoofer

MSRP: $4,302.00
MAP: $3,075.00

The EVENT-118A is a robust powered subwoofer system that incorporates a front-loaded 18” low-frequency transducer developed by DAS, designed to deliver profound and accurate bass reinforcement. As the companion subwoofer for the EVENT-28A, it shares a compatible rigging system, allowing for seamless integration whether the EVENT-28A is flown from or stacked above the EVENT-118A.

The 18FWN 18″ loudspeaker, engineered by DAS, is central to the EVENT-118A’s powerful performance. Optimized using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and equipped with neodymium magnets for reduced weight, the 18FWN offers an extended 3″ voice coil for high efficiency and long excursion. This design allows for a power handling capacity of 2000 Wpeak, ensuring the subwoofer delivers deep, impactful bass. Efficient cooling is achieved through the vented pole piece and numerous apertures in the speaker’s back plate, which significantly reduce power compression and enable high acoustic output over extended periods.

The system is driven by a cutting-edge 2000 Wpeak Class D amplifier, providing ample power for any setting. Quality Neutrik® XLR input connectors and stereo «loop thru» outputs on the rear panel provide signal continuity for the EVENT-28A systems or other components in a larger setup. Digital presets accessible via the DAScontrol™ interface on the rear of the cabinet simplify system configuration, making setup quick and user-friendly. The EVENT-118A also offers a simple selection of cardioid presets when used in pairs or groups of three units, effectively minimizing rearward sound radiation and optimizing bass coverage.

Constructed from Birch plywood, the EVENT-118A’s enclosure is robust and designed for longevity. The cabinet is finished with DAS ISO-flex protective coating, enhancing durability and making it suitable for both installation and touring applications. The rigging hardware is fully compatible with the EVENT-28A, allowing various configurations, whether flown or stacked. Additionally, a pole mount socket on the top of the unit supports combo configurations with the EVENT-28A or other compatible full-range systems.
