JBL Differential Drive® Transducer
The PRX818XLFW comes loaded with a JBL 2278G 460 mm (18 in) woofer. Differential Drive® technology, JBL's exclusive dual voice coil, and dual magnetic gap design all serve to enhance performance and significantly reduces the drivers’ weight, thanks to an innovative rethinking of the basic elements of loudspeaker design. Eliminating the heavy surrounding steel structure of conventional drivers, the unique construction provides improved heat dissipation while nonlinear distortion is dramatically reduced due to magnetically saturated pole-pieces and an aluminum shorting ring. The glorious results are transparent tone, enhanced frequency response, and increased power output and SPL.

The Next Step in Power Evolution
Driven by a Class-D power amp pushing an impressive 1500 watts, the JBL PRX818XLFW is capable of emitting a Maximum SPL Output of 134 dB peak, with a Frequency Range spanning from 30 Hz - 103 Hz. This abundance of headroom provides enough thunderous bottom to fill the venue with pristine bottom end.

Rugged and Roadworthy
The stackable enclosure is convenient (weighing 80 lbs. lightweight for a sub in this class), yet tough and durable. Constructed of 25 mm (top and bottom for added strength) and 18 mm (back and sides) poplar plywood and assembled utilizing tongue-and-groove joints, the PRX818XLFW is covered in JBL’s protective DuraFlex™ finish, while the components are safeguarded by a dent-resistant 16-gauge steel grille. Thoughtful appointments include lightweight, glass-filled nylon handles, M10 suspension points fabricated from 14-gauge steel (each with a yield-strength of 1000 lbs.), and a pole receptacle capable of accepting SS4-BK or SS4-BK24.

Rear Panel
A single GAIN knob controls the input level with an ON/OFF switch for the front LED and a handy POLARITY switch just above it (with its corresponding LED.) There’s a combination 1/4” TRS - XLR input for each of the two channels, and both have an XLR direct THRU with a HI PASS switch and LED placed above them. Up top is the WI-FI CONNECT button (and LED) for WI-FI network configuration using the PRX Connect application. There is also an LED to let you know when the Limiter is engaged and a fan to keep the JBL PRX818XLFW running cool even when the music is hot.

Compatible with HARMAN Connected PA
All PRX800 speakers integrate ioSYS technology to let you control your entire system with one app from just about anywhere in the venue. The convenient setup wizard allows for quick configuration and optimization of speaker levels and EQ.

Light, clean and full of bass

Product Review

I purchased these to bad boys and they haven’t let me down. First use was with a dj and the room holds 1000 and I had to turn them down. Use them with a band, on a aux mix with the kick drum and bass guitar. Incredible! Great balance. And the covers is the icing on the cake

The on board Wifi helps get the most out of the Sub.

Product Review

This is a big powerful Sub. I really love the Wifi option. When you go to the App and EQ the Speaker's it really helps you get the most out of the sub. With 1500 watts of power, I bought two, and absolutely loving it!!

Well worth the money!

Product Review

The jbl prx818 is a great product very durable and nice construction to them. The sound is unbelievable for the price they take a lot before they clip as well I’ve used them in many scenarios from a band in a bar to a dance recital in a school theater and a simple wedding reception! The low end frequency response is very tight and punchy as long as you eq them properly as most engineers know around 100hz can be real dirty and quite a disappointment to hear but again eq then right and you will be impressed and never buy anything but jbl again!
