Out of the Kiddie Pool, Into the Deep End

WHY CHOOSE A DJ18S SUBWOOFER?

Jaw-dropping bass from smaller, lighter cabinet.

We continue to push the envelope by what can be achieved with a mobile-optimized subwoofer. The DJ18S subwoofer’s compact size and excellent output-to-price ratio is perfect for gigging DJs or venue owners with limited space.

A powerful, easily portable system for extremely deep bass and superior sound quality, the DJ18S offers Plug and Play usage, integrated DSP, a 2400 watt continuous amplifier, and a compact, lightweight design. With intensely deep bass for its size, it offers frequency response (±3 dB) 27 – 100 Hz, bringing alive notes that mass-market subs can’t reproduce.

Don't hold back!

BASSBOSS subs are optimized for full-power usage.

Multiple proprietary protection technologies ensure that the woofers remain within their excursion and thermal limits, so they don't break or burn like other subs. BASSBOSS provides much higher levels of deep bass than mass-market subs, reliably.

With plenty of headroom to keep up with the most enthusiastic crowd and not run out of bass.

So turn it up, and keep it up. BASS is good for you.

BASSBOSS not responsible for noise complaints.

Hand-Built Cabinets

BASSBOSS DJ18S Powered Subwoofer

The DJ18S is a single 18″ powered subwoofer designed to minimize materials cost and weight and maximize efficiency and output. The DJ18S is an efficient, universal application, cost-effective single 18″ subwoofer. It features an 18″ driver with a 4″ voice coil and a 2400W amplifier in a Baltic Birch enclosure.

BASSBOSS cabinets are hand-built in the USA. Constructed from 18mm Baltic Birch plywood, using dado joints, screws and advanced composite adhesives. Stainless steel bolts are used to secure the driver, amplifier and pole sockets.

Created to stand up to intense usage. The cabinet is finished in an extremely rugged, black polyurethane coating. Drivers are protected by a black powdercoated, perforated steel grill, and the amp is recessed into the back of the cabinet for protection from damage.

Prodigious Amplification

A 2400W RMS amplifier with integrated, comprehensive DSP is included. The amplifier is rated for RMS output using continuous sine wave signal.

This is not a Peak or Burst power rating. BASSBOSS uses only continuous RMS power ratings because you’re not going to be using your sub in millisecond bursts. For subwoofer applications, Peak and Burst power ratings are largely irrelevant.

The amplifier is capable of delivering 2400W of continuous output. This ensures the amp isn’t the limiting factor in the output of low frequencies. Providing abundant power prevents overheating issues and virtually eliminates the damage that clipping a too-small amp can cause.

Rugged Drivers

BASSBOSS ZV28 Powered Subwoofer Driver

All that electrical power is converted into acoustical energy by an 18 inch neodymium motor woofer. This premium-quality driver features a split-wound 100 mm (4 in) copper voice coil, and peak-to-peak excursion capability of up to 57 mm.

The woofer cones are waterproofed. BASSBOSS woofers can survive light rain, spilled drinks and dusty environments that may leave the drivers needing a thorough cleaning. Keep the amplifiers dry and party on!

High-intensity Neodymium magnets are lighter and provide higher efficiency so the result is a lighter and louder cabinet. Split-wound coils produce a more linear force through the range of movement of the cone, which results in lower distortion and improved linearity at high output.

The cones are waterproofed to protect them from possible, accidental exposure to moisture such as rain or spilled beverages. Waterproofed woofer cones also permit the cleaning of drivers that have been soiled in a dirty or dusty environment with the use of a damp cloth. Keep the amplifiers dry and party on!

Waterproofed cones in all products. Optional weatherized and weather resistant loudspeakers have the same acoustical performance as our standard options. If your system is likely to be exposed to rain, ask about IP rated amplification options. If you have need of a system for outdoor installation, ask about Weatherized products.

Focused Tuning

BASSBOSS subs can be connected directly to your mixer with nothing but signal cable in between. The built-in processing is comprehensive and yet minimal manipulation is applied to the signal. The processing includes only a high pass filter and a low-pass filter. There is no need for any EQ in the signal for the speaker to provide a broad, flat frequency response. A sophisticated limiter system protects the woofer from thermal and over-excursion damage.

Plug-and play with peace of mind. Multiple, sophisticated protection systems make the loudspeaker virtually indestructible. You can turn on and turn up, all night, without fear of over-driving to the point of damage.

True Specifications

BASSBOSS technical specs are based upon measurements of continuous performance capabilities in normal usage. Other manufacturers may specify output based on calculations rather than measurements; measurements outside the operating bandwidth; or on ‘Burst’ or ‘Peak’ readings.

BASSBOSS specifications are conservative compared to most manufacturers. They reflect what the products will achieve, consistently, in the real world. Since the real world is where you’ll be using your gear.

Our proactive philosophy causes specifications to be subject to change whenever improvements are made.

*Peak output is calculated using “industry standard” techniques. These calculation methods create theoretical specifications that are inflated over what can actually be achieved. BASSBOSS real world output specifications are provided as “Maximum Sustained Output” ratings, which reflect actual measured, continuous output levels.
