Key Features:

The Scoop Bin Subwoofer, we believe, provides the punchiest and most defined bass frequency available in the UK today. We make the box and the driver and the driver is the BWP18, probably the most reliable 18" cast alloy driver in the UK today with over 8000 pieces sold and only 6 have come back for a re-cone.

The British Sound from British Made Scoop Bins is globally acknowledged as the best!

The Scoop Bin 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 40 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.

Be it On-Tour, a Nightclub or House of Worship, the low-frequency response will move the audience during reproduction of the spoken word, recorded and live music.

Important information about subwoofers

Subwoofers are designed to reproduce low bass audio signals between 30Hz and 150Hz. Driving them with full frequencies will cause permanent damage, so they should only be operated with a passive low-pass filter, a crossover network, or an active electronic crossover or speaker management system.
