The Paveosub-218sp is a heavily vented bassreflex subwoofer designed for highest quality mobile and installation application.
This self-powered subwoofer is equip with a very strong 3-channel 4 kW power amplifier module and the DSP loudspeaker management system.
Two premium 18″ neodymium transducers make sure it can deliver powerful and distortion-free sound pressure levels while still providing a dynamic and low bass. Low moving mass coupled with a powerful neodymium motor provide precise signalreproduction with excellent transient response which sonically outclasses other 18″ designs. A large format and powerful voice coil together with sophisticated cooling convert amplifier power more efficiently and keep powercompression low even at longterm maximum power.
Large format ports increase efficiency and prevent annoying vent noise across the whole performance range. The design of the ports further strengthens the cabinet’s top and bottom. Additional reinforcement and bracing prevents resonances, increases rear attenuation and turns the
Paveosub-218 into an extemely robust and ideal touring subwoofer.
There are 8 optimized handles accessible from any direction (they even include drains !) so you won’t break your back
You won’t strain your back during transport and set-up due to 8 optimized handles (they even include drains !) which are easily accessible from any direction.
The subwoofer can be used horizontally or upright and provides. Stacking trays and two M20 pole mount as well as foots on the opposite side. When used upright it forms an elegant package together with the Ikarray-12 due the same 60 cm width of the system. The stacking trays are made to fit Ikarray OPER-frames and Ikarray Gound-Stacking-Boards.
In addition to the rear connector panel you can find two additonal Speakon connectors on the robust front grille. They provide easy access when the subwoofer is positioned under the stage floor or when cabinets are turned around for creating cardioid arrays. This way cables can be kept out of sight from the audience. The front connectors as well as the loop-through connector on the rear panel use rubber caps to protect them from moisture.
There are three options for transport:
- the cabinet can be fitted with 100 mm bluewheels on the rear side (16 x M6 fittings)
- via stackable front transport covers including wheels and butterfly latches
- a dolly can carry up to 3 subwoofers
The Paveosub-218sp is a plug & play system.
All the required settings for different configurations are stored as factory presets in the internal memory. For best performance and reliability, simply selecting the corresponding preset on the Display for use as either, a single bass in the stack with several basses, or as cardioide and end-fire bass arrays, or as a center of a Satellite system in conjunction with different tops (passive stereo, bi-amping TS-212 mono).
The active electronics are convection cooled by a large heatsink and are maintenance free. No dust or moisture can be sucked or drawn in, making the Paveosub-218sp ideal for permanent installations. The robust cooling fins are amply rounded and have no sharp edges.
The control unit, DSP unit, signal connections and the Speakon OUT terminal are protected against moisture with a weather-proof, transparent cover. The cooling system is waterproof and the powerCON TRUE1 connectors are equipped with a rubber sealing cap.
The Paveosub-218sp is operated on one channel (2.400 W/4 Ω) from internal power amplifier modules.
2 x 800 W/4 Ω for tops or monitors.
