The LX-218C is an externally powered, high-performance subwoofer system designed to provide outstanding performance in terms of output power, bandwidth extension and distortion.

The LX-218C incorporates the 18LXN long excursion cone transducer. The LXN loudspeakers are a significant improvement over their predecessors offering increased power handling, reduced distortion and power compression.

The subwoofer can be stacked vertically on the PL-218CS dolly facilitating transport in touring applications of up to 3 units. For the transport of individual units, an optional rear casters kit (KIT-W100) is available.

The LX-218C can be upgraded to the “R” version by way of the optional rigging hardware kit (KITR-LX218C) which includes the captive rigging system, fasteners and 8 mm quick release safety pins needed for one cabinet.
