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.

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.

Purchased 4 of these for an outdoor festival, sounded aweful. Ran a Yahama 7000 to each side (2 per side) and they were clipping and distorting at all volumes. Really, not even CLOSE to a decent sound, and I spent 1-2 hours trying to EQ all of the problems out of them, and they never came into their...
