The SB18 is described as the ideal complement to L-Acoustics' WST (Wavefront Sculpture Technology) modular line sources and coaxial systems for applications requiring an extension of bandwidth with a flat to reinforced LF contour.

The main L-Acoustics system components for LF extension and contour reinforcement are:
  • SB18 subwoofer with a low frequency limit of 32 Hz
  • LA4 and LA8 (LA-RAK) amplified controllers

According to L-Acoustics, the 18" transducers designed for SB18 "combine high excursion capabilities, low thermal compression and reduced distortion." The bass-reflex vents feature a progressive profile allowing laminar airflow and reduced turbulence noise, even at the highest operating levels, the company says.

The SB18 design is based on a single 18'' LF transducer integrated into a dual bass-reflex tuned enclosure to deliver both impact and high sensitivity. Its compact size, combined with superior damping characteristics, make it well suited for compact FOH applications, L-Acoustics says. Therefore, SB18 is particularly recommended for use with KARA (either coupled/flown or stacked configurations), KIVA, ARCS and coaxial LF contour reinforcement in both standard and cardioid modes.
