The biggest Dave.

The DAVE 18 G3 is a powerful, yet easily portable subwoofer plus dual satellite PA system that delivers crystal clear, dynamic audio with punchy lows in a compact package. With a 32 Hz - 20 kHz frequency response and peak SPL of 135 dB it is an excellent choice for a wide variety of mobile and installed sound applications.

Made from rugged 15mm birch plywood, the sealed satellite cabinets are loaded with 10"/1” coaxial driver, while the bass reflex sub enclosure houses an 18" woofer and 4800 watt Class D amplification modules. Digital signal processing, multiband limiter, short circuit and overcurrent protection ensure superior sonic performance and reliable operation.

The DAVE 18 G3's subwoofer provides XLR, 6.3mm and RCA input for a wide range of signal sources. It also features individual system and sub level controls, a phase reversal switch and Speakon-compatible satellite connectors.

The DAVE 18 G3 hardware includes steel grilles, an M20 pole insert and LD's Evolutive handles on the sub for transport convenience, as well as adjustable tilt stand mounts on the satellite speakers for optimum coverage angles.
