Compact and powerful, the JBL PRX618S offers the performance of an 18" subwoofer in a package not much larger than a typical 15" sub. The PRX600 Series represent an evolutionary step in the efficient use of amplifier power, rugged durability and enhanced versatility in a self-powered loudspeaker. Designed from the ground up to perform in the real world of sound reinforcement where challenging audio environments, high ambient noise levels and loud volumes are the norm, the PRX600 Series are built to last a lifetime using our reliable and trustworthy, tour-tested technology. Knowing you can rely on your system to deliver everything you need gives you the freedom to deliver your best. That’s performance you can trust.
With a pole receptacle (that accepts a SS3-BK or SS3-BK24) on the top panel and integrated stereo pass-thru, with selectable HP filter, this is the perfect compliment to the PRX600 full-range systems. Configured with a PRX612M or PRX615M the result is a highly transportable, high performance subs/satellite system. The addition of a polarity reverse options further enables integration with any top cabinet.
The PRX618S is a high performance self powered compact subwoofer system. The PRX618S is comprised of a 268G 18" (460 mm) Differential Drive® dual voice-coil and magnetic gap, neodymium woofer driven by a Crown Class-D power amplifier. The amplifier input panel offers stereo or mono line level inputs via balanced XLR connectors as well as a single channel speaker level input via a 1/4" TS phone jack. Signal processing, crossover functionality and limiting for the system is integrated into the input section functionality. Overall subwoofer input sensitivity is controlled by a single easy grip knob and a simple switch enables polarity reversal for sub/satellite system optimization. Signal present and limit lights indicate performance status.
All PRX600 cabinets are built from a combination of 25 mm (on the top and bottom for added rigidity) and 18 mm, strong, light-weight poplar plywood made structurally sound with tongue and groove joints. All PRX600 Series cabinets are protected by JBL's tour proven DuraFlex™ finish. Grilles are made from dent-resistant 16 gauge steel and handles are made from light-weight glass-filled nylon for added strength and durability.
Special note: JBL highly recommends that no more than 70 lbs. of weight be placed on a speaker pole that is mounted to a PRX618S.
