The Power Dynamics PDY218SA is a high-quality 18-inch active PA subwoofer with 1000W class D amplification. This active sub delivers an impressive max SPL rating of 128dB, making it the go-to choice for expansive spaces like DJ stages, live events, and club atmospheres. Providing extra deep bass frequencies with loud volume levels, the PDY218SA is a fantastic option for a wide range of applications.
The rear panel of this PA subwoofer offers two sets of balanced XLR outputs. One set delivers a full-range signal, perfectly suited for chaining the bass output to another subwoofer. In contrast, the second output set caters to high pass signals, dispensing only mid to high-range frequencies. This arrangement is perfect when connecting full-range satellite speakers to the active sub, ensuring the subwoofer handles the bass frequencies while the main speakers reproduce the higher tones for better volume levels and a higher overall quality of sound.
An adjustable crossover feature allows you to fine-tune the frequency response based on the audio source, location, and accompanying speakers in your sound system. Moreover, a phase switch is included, which adds a slight delay to the audio signal being reproduced by the subwoofer in order to integrate better with the rest of your PA system.
To facilitate easy connections, this PA subwoofer is equipped with RCA, 6.3mm Jack, and balanced XLR input options on its rear. The XLR connectors, designed for optimal signal quality, pair well with mixing desks. Meanwhile, the RCA input offers a direct plug-in option for devices like laptops or DJ controllers when needed.
Durability is a key characteristic of the PDY218SA active PA subwoofer, thanks to its resilient plywood casing, fortified with a tough exterior coating. Built-in side handles ensure ease of transport, while the strategically placed 35mm tophat mounting hole at the top makes it simple to mount your primary speakers using an appropriate speaker pole.
