Product Details

Peavey 1801-4 LT BW 18" Woofer Speaker Driver

These state-of-the-art speakers’ features Kevlar® impregnated cones and a high efficiency magnet structure to provide outstanding sensitivity, reliability, and performance. The Kevlar impregnated cone is stiffer than an equivalent weight paper cone, reducing the tendency of the cone to distort the shape of the voice coil, thus avoiding rubs and scrapes. Superior power handling results from the increased stiffness, especially with large cone excursions. Peavey item 00560460.

Peavey 1801-4 LT BW 18" Woofer Speaker Driver

Hi, I would like to use this speaker for a subwoffer in a live sound application, how small of a box could I use and still get good performance down to about 40-50hz range, mabe 6-7cu ft?

Asked by: Nick440
This driver would not be the best option for use as a subwoofer. It has a limited amount of excursion and the volume you need is about half of what is considered optimal. I would recommend the Eminence Sigma Pro 18A instead, which is very similar in price and will be a much better performer for that application.One of these only requires 5 cubic feet total, with two 4" diameter ports that are 6" long for a tuning frequency of 38 Hz.
