We hand make these in carefully controlled batches of 50 to maintain quality and reliability. This is our fastest selling Sub Bass driver.

Our fastest selling driver 3000w Program (1500w RMS) Sub-bass driver. Many compare this driver to the PD1852 but the BWP18 runs cool due to extra cooling and it is designed to outperform all of its rivals. This makes the £240 Fane Colossus look like a toy.

We aim to carry stock but demand is greater than our ability to hand build the BWP18 and we are not able to increase production. Available in 4 Ohm and 8 Ohm.
