Cerwin Vega EL-36C Earthquake 18-Inch Folded Horn Subwoofer

The EL-36C "Earthquake" delivers outstanding audio performance and legendary Cerwin-Vega bass that will turn any environment into an earthquake zone! With six and a half feet of folded horn chamber length in the cabinet, the EL-36C Folded Horn Subwoofer has bass frequency extension similar to a 36" driver with even more SPL performance than its predecessor, the extremely popular EL-36B. A striking die cast door has improved heat dissipation capabilities. Acoustic impedance balancing reduces cone rocking and distortion. The curved horn mouth bracing provides a smoother frequency response. Enhanced front corner bracing plus a deep, reinforced pole offer additional durability and reliability. Perfect for live sound, mobile DJs, and club applications.

DJ OCHOE on Apr 20, 2011
BEST ANSWER: I recommand the Cerwin Vega JE-36C Jr Earthquake 18 In Subwoofer. I also do recommand a BBE MAX-X3 2-Way Stereo/3-Way Mono Crossover because you do want more control over your sound.
Other than the price difference, is there a huge difference with these and the Jr Earthquakes ? I'm really leaning towards the EL's. I'm also thinking about the B-52 LX-18EV3 as well
Marcus on Apr 13, 2011
BEST ANSWER: The bass response on the EL36C is excellent. 30 Hz – 300Hz (-3dB).
What Crown Amp would you recomend for this sub ? I'm interested either in the xls series or XTI series.
Marcus on Apr 9, 2011
BEST ANSWER: XTI 2000 & XLS 2500 will be good for this sub.
