The VANTEC-118A is an active front loaded bass system which has been designed specifically for use with the VANTEC-20Acurved source line array. Compact in size, the unit can be flown in arrays or linked together in ground stacks thanks to the rigging system which is compatible with the VANTEC-20A.

The electronics package includes a 2000 Wpeak Class D amplifier and 24-bit high-end DSP for exceptional audio reproduction. A unique «Deep-Loud» EQ switch allows users to tailor the bass output to provide a low subwoofer type response using the «Deep» setting or a louder hard hitting performance in the «Loud» setting. On the rear panel, controls can be found for gain, polarity and a continually variable low-pass filter which ranges from 80 Hz to 125 Hz. The VANTEC-118A is phase response coherent with the other Vantec Series active tops such as the VANTEC-20A offering precise alignment without the need of an external DSP.
