The Peavey QW-118 18” Low Rider Subwoofer packs a high-power woofer in a compact cabinet design. It is a direct radiator subwoofer designed specifically for the high-end pro audio user. The Low Rider 18" driver's 1,600W program rating and long cone excursion together produce clean, deep bass, making the QW-118 suitable for the bottom end of virtually any high-powered sound system. This woofer's enclosure is compact for its power handling, SPL output, distortion performance, and bass extension.
The QW-118 Subwoofer is constructed of premium 3/4" plywood and is covered with a tough, durable black Hammer-Head polyurethane coating, making it rugged and roadworthy. The tough enclosure can withstand the high internal pressure produced by the woofer. The vent design integrated into the enclosure includes a vertical brace to further increase its stiffness. The vent's large area and long path length allow for a large volume of air to move with very low resistance. This is important due to the massive air flow volumes that the Low Rider woofer can produce. A 16-gauge, powder-coated, perforated metal grille covers the front of the system to protect it from external damage.
Input connection to the system is made via two 4-pin Neutrik jacks in parallel; an 8-pin and a 4-pin Neutrik thru jack is provided for bi-amping flexibility while maintaining signal integrity. The inclusion of a standard 4-pin Neutrik jack in parallel allows for daisy chaining to another cabinet when bi-amping.
Note: This unit is not designed for overhead suspension.
