Reasonably priced, high power handling subwoofer enclosure.

The Peavey SP 218BX Dual 18" Passive Subwoofer loudspeaker system delivers high output, low distortion bass from two 18" Pro Rider woofers mounted in a vented enclosure. Designed for portability, durability and great sound, it is constructed of a hardwood panel coated with Peavey' heavy-duty HammerHead UV stabilized polyurea finish. A full-length, wrap-around perforated steel grille protects the front of the enclosure, and casters are mounted to assist in portability. A pole mount is also included for support of a high-pass enclosure.

For more than three decades, the renowned Peavey SP Series has been the mainstay of bands of every type and installation enclosures for every imaginable venue. SP Series enclosures are builtin the U.S.A. and made to last with patented and exclusive technologies that make your sound clear and true, and efficient and strong.

Every enclosure in the SP Series features Peavey's field-replaceable speaker basket design, an exclusive feature that allows you to replace blown cones on the gig with ease. Speaker re-coning is expensive and can take weeks, but with Peavey speakers you can replace the entire cone just by removing three screws.
