DESCRIPTION
The Electro-Voice T18 is a 400-watt subwoofer
loudspeaker system which combines the at-
tributes of both horn-loaded and vented-box
designs. It utilizes the unique SubScoop
net construction with a newly revised DL18MT
woofer, as used in the Manifold Technology
concert systems. The design behaves like a
horn over much of its range, but without the time
delay and weight problems usually associated
with conventional designs. Vented-box prin-
ciples take over for the lowest octave and assist
in producing exceptionally high levels of clean,
punchy bass from a subcompact box. The
reverse woofer orientation has been used to
optimize the rear chamber volume and de-
crease the horn flare rate for extended low-end
-in. void-free
performance.
The T18 can be used to augment the bass
performance of any Electro-Voice stage sys-
tem. (This may involve the use of appropriate
electronics and crossovers.) A 1
mount receptacle on the top surface of the T18
allows satellite speaker systems such as the
T52 and T22 to be used (see Figure 4).
USE IN MULTIPLES
The T18 may be used in multiples to increase
acoustic output. A 6-dB increase in maximum
acoustic output occurs when two speaker sys-
tems are placed side by side and paralleled,
yielding a 4-ohm load. For operation at very-low
frequencies, the woofer cones "mutually couple,"
acting as one system with twice the effective
cone area and power-handling capacity of a
single system. Increasing the cone area doubles
the efficiency, providing a 3-dB increase in
sound pressure level. The doubled power ca-
pacity provides the potential for an additional
3-dB gain in maximum acoustic output.
