U 18

18” / 2-way premium loudspeaker / 600 W (RMS)

The U18 is a true fullrange speaker that delivers enormous sound-pressure. The cabinet includes one specially-crafted 18“ transducer and one 1.4“ compression driver. The 18“ transducer has a very low-mass membran, which operates in combination with a big PHASE PLUG for a very dynamic reproduction in a frequency range of 35 Hz-950 Hz. The high frequency range is covered by a 1.4“ compression driver, which is mounted onto very large horn. This construction delivers extremely high performance up to 20 KHz. The PHASE PLUG and the large horn ensure a perfect dispersion of 90°x40° (HxV), starting at 400 Hz. The U18 is the powerful solution for medium to large clubs, live applications and DJ/drum monitoring. With a weight of 41 kg, a height of 90 cm only and two ergonomic transport handles the U18 is also ideal for mobile use. The three integrated ANCRA tracks enable a professional installation.

► HF compression driver with 3” voice coil
► 90° x 40° nominal coverage
► True fullrange operation (18” transducer)
► Ergonomic grip handles
► 3 ANCRA (comp.) tracks for flown applications
► 3 additional rigging points (M8)
► Durable NOVA PolyCoat© finish
