Product Details

Peavey 1801-8 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. Peavey item 00560480.

Peavey 1801-8 LT BW 18" Woofer Speaker Driver is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works greatReplaced a old JBL with this Peavey and it works great. Got it quick too. JBL replacement was too costly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Las Vegas Lounge is BUMPIN again.Bought 4 of these drivers to replace some tired 18" Eminence drivers in some old Yamaha bass cabinets. I must say these drivers were a marked improvement for this clubs sound. I tend to favor drivers with large ribbon or flat wire edgewound voicecoils Peavey's BWX & Black Widow line has that. Surprising fidelity from a driver that was built for abuse. They are in a Las Vegas Lounge that tends to go nightclub in the evenings, so these things see a 24/7 duty cycle with a wide variety of listening levels. After a year they still sound great.

what is cabnet volume and port size for two of these in one cabnet?

I asked this in a slightly more detailed question but don't know where it shows up to view it!
Asked by: gilcentral indiana
These should work well in 10.5 cubic feet with two 6" diameter ports that are 9" long. This will provide a tuning frequency of 34 Hz.
