Pyle PDW18125 18" High Power Subwoofer
Pyle PDW18125 18" High Power Subwoofer is rated 3.75 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW!I have four pairs of dual 18" subs, and I was looking for a driver that wouldn't break the bank that much but at the same time deliver respectable performance, because these are custom cabs I made for an installation project I was hired for. I stumbled across this driver. I've used all of them (B&C, McCauley, JBL, Selenium, etc) so I know what I'm looking for. At first I thought that for testing purposes this driver would suffice. I was blowing away when I first heard a pair of this in one of the cabs. They kick and rumble with lots of power! I'm getting myself another set pretty soon. Pyle really stepped it up with this one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Subwoofer ValueWe have used these drivers for prototype testing and PA gear. It would be nice to have a complete set of parameters but ... Oh, well. The price point is right. The power handling is a bit optimistic. We have blown some up in prototype testing but the cost makes the them the perfect test mule. However, properly setup with a high pass of say 30Hz and a limit set in the 70 volt range these units sound great and will deliver the bass show after show at high SPL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sub for the dollar!!!!!!To start off disregard anything K-Spaz has to say because he is what was wrong with that whole project. I have bought thousands of speakers in my life and have never heard of a magnet getting energized from the factory. He probably had the sibs in a single cab and they were out of phase from one another, that is when the speakers move and you hear nothing. And if they bad out of the box PE would have paid to ship them back, not him. I own over 20 of these any use them in a pro sound rig. For the price you get these for they are a very good speaker. I use them in Meyer 650R2 and EV MTL1-X cabs and they work great in both of them. So anyone that wants a great cheap pro sound sub these are it. I run Crown I-Tech 6000's into them and the handle it all day long.www.rsmsound.com

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Both Defective?Got two of these for a home theater project, built enclosures, etc. Powered them with Behringer A500's in bridged Mono. Had quite a time figuring out what was wrong. With 700+ MEASURED input watts, I could easily put my head up to the speaker with a test tone playing. Came to the conclusion that the magnets had never been energized at the factory, and that they had to go back. Cha Ching on the shipping... While they would shake some (with incredible input power), clearly these were not working correctly. I should have been suspect when the SPL of 101 is quoted but the price is so low. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.Maybe I got the rare duds and these really are a great deal. I am not trying 2 more to find out.On a side note, the specs quoted are highly inaccurate, right down to the weights, and dimensions. This speaker is 18.5" in overall diameter, and the mounting flat on the back of the speaker is ~.800", so the cutout should be considerably smaller than the literature says. Wait till you have this speaker in hand before cutting, just in case there are multiple versions of it.

Pyle PDW18125 18" High Power Subwoofer

Which is perferred vented or sealed?

What would be the best sizes for either design for PA use? For home I prefer sealed designs but was wondering if sealed has a place in a PA environment.
Asked by: Loopie
It leans toward a sealed design around 3.0 cu/ft. This is a clean flat response down to 30hz at 116db with 800 watts and not having issues with cone excursion. The vented design is 13.0 cu/ft and will 9db more output at 30 hz but is severely compromising cone excursion (bottoming out) and will probably not be able to take the RMS rating. If you drop the box size down to say 5.0 cu/ft, you will limit cone excursion but your output is within 3db of a sealed design then.
