VH Sub218R aspects

VH Subwoofer Series VH Sub118R VH Sub218R VH Infra218R VH Sub218H VH Sub121H 
VH Sub218R is a special Sub-Bass unit housing two long excursion 18in. direct radiating transducers mounted in two separated Bass-refex tuned enclosures. It consists of two coupled VH Sub118R with one physically facing up in the cabinet bottom side.
This particular "V-shape” design allows to obtain a larger unique reflex port exactly in the cabinet middle, maximizing the system efficiency in the lower frequency response.
The reflex port center alignment increases more the system performances due to its exponential front loading path. Coupling several units in a large array the result becomes more significant.
Thanks to the Bass-reflex differentially flared design, the optimized vented port reduces turbulence and port noise at high levels, while also increasing LF system efficiency and extending the frequency response down to 32Hz.
Designed for ground stacked configurations it can be positioned in a cardioid subwoofer array with one cabinet physically facing backwards and processed by a dedicated amplifier channel.
It allows to achieve a remarkable benefit controlling the lower frequencies response and significantly reducing the energy radiating towards to the rear.
Thanks to the special system efficiency, VH Sub218R is capable of delivering a high standard SPL output still maintaining a great frequency response linearity.
The particular system ability to control exceptional transducer excursions keeps really low the total harmonic distortion levels (THD).
Excellent bass-punch response combined together with a really extended lower frequency reproduction make unique this interesting Sub-Bass unit, compared to double 18in. transducers standard vented enclosures. It can be considered the ideal companion of all on-stage applications as Side Fill or Drum Fill.
The VH Sub218R is one-of-a-kind, a true reference!
Lightweight and compact dimensions make this unit extremely modular for many different setups, allowing arrays of large dimensions.
A complete range of accessories makes easier and faster all deployments such as stacked configurations with pole-mounted speakers.
Significant construction criteria, combined with the latest technologies and innovative materials, ensure a great reliability over time.
VH Sub218R cabinet is constructed from marine Birch-ply and has an impact and weather protected PCP (Polyurea Cabinet Protection) finish.
It can be as well matched with all the most challenging Loud Professional Full-Range and Line-Array systems, significantly boosting their LF extension.

Applications: Large Open Air Venues, Arenas, Stadiums, Theaters, Conference Halls, Concert Halls, Large Scale Discos & Clubs.
