L-ACOUSTICS Launches New SB18 High Power Compact Subwoofer

l-acoustics_sb18.jpgFRANKFURT, Germany — L-ACOUSTICS introduced the new SB18 high power compact subwoofer at Prolight + Sound 2010 in Frankfurt.

The SB18 is the ideal complement to L-ACOUSTICS’ WST (Wavefront Sculpture Technology) modular line sources and coaxial systems for applications requiring an extension of bandwidth with a flat to reinforced LF contour. Drawing on the latest innovations in electro-acoustics, signal processing and components, SB18 delivers an exceptional level of performance while offering the engineer and sound designer numerous modes of operation for rental and fixed installation applications.

The main L-ACOUSTICS system components for LF extension and contour reinforcement are:
- SB18 subwoofer, with a low frequency limit of 32 Hz
- LA4 and LA8 (LA-RAK) amplified controllers

The 18″ transducers specifically designed for SB18 combine high excursion capabilities, low thermal compression and reduced distortion. The bass-reflex vents feature a progressive profile allowing laminar airflow and reduced turbulence noise, even at the highest operating levels. These combined properties contribute to the SB18 sonic qualities in terms of precision and musicality.

The SB18 design is based on a single 18″ LF transducer integrated into a dual bass-reflex tuned enclosure to deliver both impact and high sensitivity. Its compact size, combined with superior damping characteristics, make it extremely well suited for compact FOH applications. Therefore, SB18 is particularly recommended for use with KARA (either coupled/flown or stacked configurations), KIVA, ARCS and coaxial LF contour reinforcement in both standard and cardioid modes.

Similar to L-ACOUSTICS’ new KARA system, the SB18 will begin shipping in September 2010. For more information, visit www.l-acoustics.com/SB18.
