Love at first Bass
18.12.2015
I tested this two subs few days ago it did a super great job in a combination with satellite speakers(2x Ev-Zlx15p) People were dancing all night long, no sub-bass error or failure so ever . It was a bit hot at amplifier area, but no danger in overheating.
To protect yourself I advise you to run it via speaker management system, for total cross-over and limitation control against potential misunderstanding of mixer's master output signal that could damage your entire system.
Otherwise Frequency cutoff works very well this sub is playing very very loud and comes with a built-in limiter.
As a good Sub its heavy and it should be!
Its well built ... but don't hesitate in buying 4 wheels for transport your back will be very thankful, this sub will expand your bass-based-music delivery for all thirsty dancers out there. Totally recommend!

Best price/quality balance
Blind Dog Studio, 03.09.2020
We tested subs both indoor and outdoor events.
Amazing sound and attack even at low gain indoor at our small 100 square meters amphitheater inside the studio.
No distortion at max levels in the big venue places and outdoor.
Sounds perfect for live bands and DJing as well.
I suggest not to throw away protective foam from the package. It works as a good damper so you don't need to buy it separately.
Please keep in mind heavyweight. You will need 2 strong guys to carry this subs

I bought this for a small scale theatre tour which i wanted a lot of sub frequency sound going on in the show. We were using one for an audience size of about 100 maximum. Worked really well and gave me the weight of bass i wanted. Did manage to max it out in parts of the show but I was doing some pretty loud sub effects. Used in a more realistic setting, It could easily manage a bigger room.

The sound is good. It's not perfect. It isn't very level in it's frequency response (in the range it can manage), but this was probably more noticeable to me at the level i was using it and it was easily tuneable through software.

It is heavy! and i don't necessarily mean that in negative way. It makes it really sturdy which helps with the sound quality. But considering I bought this to tour, I do feel a little sorry for the people who have to move it in and out of a van every few days (although that's not me, so I don't feel that sorry).

looking for subs..
Maureen B., 29.11.2014
i have been looking for a while for some subwoofers i have owned 1 x TA 18 for about 7 years never had any problems what so ever its a total work horse.
but with all these new small systems coming out i thought its time for a new up to date sub i tried mackie,db,ev. but i can really say for the money they where asking the where no different from the TA18 in fack the TA18 is louder the average sub i was looking at was about 128/130db and three times the price so i thought right i must get another TA18 and WOW two of these are mega putting out with no problems 131db. i cant say enough about these subs for the money i dont think you will get a warm 131db bin for this price anywhere. i used one for years but with two they perrrrrrr. well done thomann once again you deliver pure class....
