The Milan M18 Self-Powered Subwoofer from Turbosound is a subwoofer with a 12" (304.8mm) driver, incorporating all the amplifier and crossover electronics needed for bass management and reproduction in modern surround sound or traditional stereo systems. Its 36 to 80Hz frequency range, ample sound pressure capability and versatile connections make it ideal companions for many available speakers.
The M18 enclosure is made of plywood finished in dark blue textured paint. This construction technique provides special flow characteristics with minimal turbulence noise.
Lastly, the amplifier provides two input channels with balanced jack/XLR connectors, and two link outputs on male XLRs, providing connections to further Milan mid-high cabinets or subwoofers. A filtered high-pass output also provides connections to other mid-high cabinets.
The Milan M18 is a self-powered bandpass subwoofer enclosure consisting of an 18" (457.2mm) low frequency driver housed in an optimally tuned enclosure, together with an integrated lightweight 1kW Class D amplifier
The Class D amplifier features sophisticated signal processing which provides limiting functions to ensure high performance and long term reliability. Status LEDs indicate mains power, signal present and signal limit
The amplifier provides two input channels with balanced jack/XLR connectors, and two link outputs on male XLRs, providing connections to further Milan mid-high cabinets or subwoofers. A filtered high-pass output also provides connections to other mid-high cabinets. The left and right signals are summed in the subwoofer through a low-pass filter to the 18" (457.2mm) driver. A sub level control is also provided in order to achieve an even level between the subwoofer and Milan mid-high cabinets
The M18 is available in two versions to suit regional AC mains voltages of either 110 volts or 230 volts, and mains power is supplied via an IEC mains connector.
The cabinet is constructed from 0.6" (15mm) laminated plywood and is finished in dark blue textured paint. A pole mount socket is fitted to allow Milan M15 cabinets to be mounted on optional 35mm speaker poles
