I have a 3-piece blues rock band that plays clubs, outdoor events and the like to crowds of up to 350. Before buying the SW118V woofer, we played these gigs with a Yamaha EMX512SC powered mixer plus 2 Yamaha 15 cabs on sticks. Adding the SW118V has improved our sound immeasurably.
This cabinet has some resonance, but over has a clean sound. Extension to a flat 25hz is obtainable with a some eq, flat to about 35-40hz without eq. Over all response curve is smooth and flat with no major peaks or dips. The efficiency rating is a little low.
My band used it and only it for the bass for all of our gigs. I was very happy with the output of "Big Bertha". She never failed us. Used in small clubs and every once in a while, an outdoor small restaurant. Had to put wheels on her. That was my only complaint.
I've owned a pair of these subs for almost a year now, and never really pushed them. It was difficult to get a good sound out of them at low volume. Then I pushed 1200 watts into 1 of them and I was blown away! There was no distortion, no crackling or fuzz!
Excellent build. Not too heavy. Nice smooth, full sound. I am using QSC GX5s to drive them. Good value.
Nice but just too big and couldn't find the cords to hook it up
I always thought Yamaha made good products so I bought a pair of this subs I noticed the cabs need internal bracing, when you turn up the volume the cabs start to rattle on the side panels I didn't want to mess around with tech.
The Yamaha SW118V is a 18 inch Passive Subwoofer, and a lot of the time when I am doing a smaller show as a DJ I will just take this. This was my “Go To” sub for smaller birthday parties and banquets manly because it was very light and easy to take with me.
Cabinets can not handle a lot of power. Sound descent at lower volume. Considerchaning drivers out with peavy lowriders 18"
I bought a pair of S215v's in 2000. I have used them literally hundreds of times. They are rugged, wear well, 1,000 watt peak power handles all occasions. The only drawback is the weight at around 110 lbs. Solid. Clear.
