BASSBOSS DJ18S Powered Subwoofer Provides Intense Deep Bass from a Mobile-Optimized Cabinet

Bassboss' DJ18S powered subwoofer

Powered loudspeaker manufacturer BASSBOSS announces the release of its DJ18S Powered Subwoofer, a compact, deep-bass sub that weighs only 110lb. and delivers output that's 3dB down at 27Hz. Perfect for mobile users who need deep, rich bass from a smaller cabinet, the DJ18S offers enough bottom-octave output to replace two similarly sized or similarly priced subwoofers.

"The DJ18S subwoofer's compact size and excellent output-to-price ratio is perfect for gigging DJs or venue owners with limited space," said Lian Amber, CEO of Bassboss. "Thanks to its extraordinary capabilities, you really can do more with less. The DJ18S is a powerful, easily portable system that offers extremely deep bass and superior sound quality for a very reasonable price, with plug and play simplicity, integrated DSP, a reliable self-powered system and a compact and lightweight design."

The DJ18S is self-powered and includes a USA-made 2,400W RMS amplifier. That's not peak power, but 2,400W of continuous output, ensuring that the amp isn't the limiting factor in the output of low frequencies. Providing abundant power effectively eliminates the possibility of the amplifier overheating and shutting off. It also essentially eliminates clipping as a cause of driver failure, making the DJ18S a solidly reliable subwoofer with much more deep bass output than competing subs.

The long-excursion 18" woofer has a 4" copper voice coil for superior power handling and a Neodymium magnet structure for high sensitivity, which makes the DJ18S lighter and louder.

"The 'secret sauce' of the DJ18S is in the proprietary processing of the integrated, comprehensive DSP," says Bassboss designer David Lee. "Although no equalization is required for the DJ18S to achieve its stated frequency response, it includes a comprehensive DSP. The processing consists of high-pass and low-pass filters as well as multiple protection systems and limiters to control all manners of driver overload, including thermal, excursion and clipping. The protection systems effectively prevent the overheating of the voice coil and minimize long-term thermal compression while having virtually no effect on the transient response and peak output of the loudspeaker. The processing ensures seamless integration with all Bassboss Powered Subwoofers, tops, and MicroMains. No external processing is required to achieve premium performance."

Rugged 18mm Baltic Birch plywood ensures a solid structure and a long lifespan for the DJ18S. All Bassboss cabinets are made in the USA and carry a six-year warranty. Stainless steel bolts are used to secure the drivers, amplifier, and pole sockets. A perforated steel grill protects the waterproofed woofer cone and a black polyurea coating seals the wood from the elements and wayward refreshments.

With the custom fit wheel cart, the DJ18S can be easily rolled in and out of venues, speeding load-in, and making the dreaded late-night load-out a breeze. Custom fitted covers protect the DJ18S for years of like-new appearance.
