Delta 18 Sub

Delta 18" is my 100% 18mm 13 ply Birch Marine Plywood Passive Subwoofer

Each cabinet delivers 1000w RMS (4000w Peak) at 8 Ohm and goes down to 34 Hz - with 134dB 1w-1m. We make the cast alloy 1kw driver so we can control the performance to perfection!

The Delta 18″ Subwoofer we believe provides the tightest and most defined bass frequency response available in the UK today. We make the box and the driver and the driver is the BDP18, probably the most reliable 18" cast alloy driver in the UK today with over 5000 pieces sold and only 6 have come back for a re-cone.

The cabinet is finished in 4 coats of Heavy Duty black splatter PU paint it will withstand all the knocks and scrapes gathered through touring. The box has been tuned to perfection after 30 years of manufacture and it sounds as punchy and stomach punchy today as it ever did! No crossover is fitted in the box as all users should use a speaker management processor.
