Massive JBL bass in a portable package.
The JBL EON518S is an 18", direct-radiating, high performance powered compact subwoofer speaker system designed to extend low frequency performance of any EON system. The JBL subwoofer also offers the convenience of an integrated crossover and stereo loop-thru capability.
The EON518S is comprised of a 460 mm (18") Differential Drive woofer driven by a 500W Class-D digital amplifier. The amplifier input panel offers stereo or mono line level inputs via balanced XLR connectors as well as a single channel speaker level input via a 1/4 inch TS phone jack. Signal processing, crossover functionality and limiting for the system is integrated into the input section functionality.
Overall subwoofer input sensitivity is controlled by a single easy-grip knob and a simple switch enables polarity reversal for sub/satellite system optimization. I's signal present and limit lights indicate performance status and JBL provides an additional switch to kill the illuminated logo in theater applications.
The speaker enclosure has been engineered for maximum performance and absolute minimum size. Constructed of 18 mm plywood it is coated in JBL's rugged DuraFlex finish. It also features a full screen-backed steel grille designed into a rugged copolymer bezel for maximum component protection. For comfortable portability the EON518S subwoofer features 2 large ergonomic rubber grip handles.
