B-52's active folded horn subwoofers have been hailed by music professionals across the USA and around the world. They are simply amazed by the power, quality and affordibility. The LX-18A V2 features our award-winning light-weight digital amplifier and is built specifically for those who require long-throw subs but still want the convenience and sound advantages of an active system.
The B-52 LX-18A V2 is powered by our 1200-watt digital amplifier. The 6 lbs amplifier draws less than 12 amps of electricity (at full volume) and has the ability to power the LX-18 V2. The LX-18A V2 includes all the features needed in an active subwoofer: 24 dB/octave electronic crossover, a compressor/ limiter, subsonic filter, phase switch and both full-range and high-pass outputs.
ENTER THE DIGITAL DOMAIN
B-52's digital amplifier is more than 93% efficient, draws less power than conventional amplifiers and therefore generates less heat. Less heat translates to longer device life, more efficient operation and unparalleled reliability.
POWERS ADDITIONAL PASSIVE SUBWOOFER
The B-52 LX-18A V2 is designed to power an additional passive sub. The passive subwoofer (LX-18 V2) has the same physical dimensions as the LX-18A V2. Connecting the active subwoofer to an additional passive subwoofer increases the amplifier's available power output from 800 to 1200 watts.
INTERNAL COMPRESSION CHAMBER
The B-52 18" subwoofer's acoustic load is controlled by a specially designed horn and compression chamber that minimizes the excursion of the driver while maximizing the system's output. The optimally-sized acoustic aperture of the compression chamber forms the throat of the horn and helps to force air through the horn at an increased velocity and pressure. The compression chamber optimizes the horn's output and the acoustic impedance seen by the B-52 18-200L transducer. It is this acoustic impedance transforming "phase-plug" design that enables the LX-Series subwoofers to achieve amazing and unprecedented output levels.
