Getting to know the 18S
The Dynaudio 18S is a DSP controlled active subwoofer intended to augment the bass performance of full range monitors in near-field or mid-field monitoring installations.
The 18S features a closed box acoustic system and incorporates dual opposed 24 cm drivers to minimise mechanical vibration.
Connection facilities include balanced XLR and unbalanced stereo inputs with output sockets provided to enable the connection of active monitors, a power amplifier for passive monitors, or a second subwoofer.
The 18S incorporates low-pass filter presets configured to match a range of Dynaudio monitor models, three bands of parametric equalisation, an optional 80 Hz high-pass output filter and an adjustable low-pass filter that can be configured for use with monitors from alternative manufacturers.
18S configuration and control is accomplished through a rear panel mounted display combined with a rotary controller.
