"IMPRESSIVE Bass on any Beat!"
Pros: Compact,Attractive Design,Easy To Connect,Great Sound Quality,Powerful

Sound Reinforcement at its finest...
The momment you turn-on the PEAVEY SP218 DUAL 18" BASS, they will turn-you-on by filling large venues and your gutt with massive low-ends. I guarantee...even through the most demanding nights of driving the amps and long hrs of continuous play, there will be no signs of "speaker fatigue."

Best Subs for the Price "4800 Watts"!!!!
Pros: Easy To Set Up,Good Power Output,Great Sound Quality,Easy to Mount,Attractive Design
Cons: Heavy / Bulky

I'm a sound engineer and I do a lot of gigs from CD release events to medium size concerts. Over the past few years, I have been building my system, however, I was dissatified with the lows from my old subs. They did not have enough bottom that I could feel, if you know what I mean.

Well, after I bought a pair of these Peavey SP 218, my bass is pure, clean and powerful. I had did a Gospel Concert over the weekend and the musicians were thoughly impressed with the clean bass sound that these speakers put out. Needless to say, the audience really enjoyed the concert.

So, if you are on a tight budget and cannot afford the JBL's, EV or some of the more elite brands, then you should seriously give these subs a try. You will not be dissappointed.
