Peavey 1808-8 CU BWX 18" Woofer Speaker Driver
Peavey 1808-8 CU BWX 18" Woofer Speaker Driver is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid speakerI own a pair of these and use them for FOH subs. Very good bottom end. I can really FEEL the bass pounding. I don't know how you can beat the overall value of this speaker. You get a lot of BOOM for your buck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value as usualThe Peavey Cu Bwx performs and sounds like the traditional Black Widow. As a matter of fact it is so much like the traditional black widow that I fail to see why peavey felt there was a reason to produce this speaker. They should have just improved the traditional black widow. I can't tell the difference except perhaps a little bit less distortion and a bit more power to handle. You can't beat the price/performance ratio as with all peavey speakers.I am glad to see Peavey make more speaker models but this one is perhaps unnecessary. But I bought one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harder Thump Of Sound Not To The WalletI installed these into two Yamaha single 18" sub cabnets to replace blown speakers. Reconing was gonna cost 119.00. Why not try new?I was amazed at the difference in the performance of the Peavey 18" over the Yamaha. Deeper harder thump with a little less power was realized right from the start. After about 12 hours of combined playing time they actually further increased in performance.I am now at the point where I have removed them and am working through the speaker opening to beef up the box. They hit so hard the cab's are buzzing.I recommend this speaker for a replacement on small to medium venues.Bob

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product for a cheap priceThis speaker sounds amazingly deep bass. Put it in an old school PV SUBCOMPACT folded horn type cabinet, you can feel vibration in your chest.

Peavey 1808-8 CU BWX 18" Woofer Speaker Driver

what is the speaker displacement for the 1808-8 CU when front mounted? Specs are for rear mounted.

Asked by: Snoid
Peavey does not provide a front mounted displacement figure although the difference will be negligible and make no audible difference.
