The 18TLW3000 is an 18 inch diameter high performance subwoofer, specifically designed for high SPL subwoofer applications in either a reflex, bandpass or horn loaded configuration. For optimum results we recommend the usage of power amplifiers able to deliver 3600W program power without clipping
18TLW3000 uses Eighteen Sound proprietary Tetracoil technology, where two different, axially separated magnetic gaps and two inside-outside 4" diameter voice coils are wound on the same former and suspended evenly in the two magnetic gaps.
The Tetracoil design key advantages are:
1) a symmetric flux density versus displacement behavior, that minimizes the even distortion products;
2) a very symmetric and flat inductance curve;
3) the equivalent voice coil diameter of a 4" Tetracoil speaker is greater than 6". Consequently heat dissipation occurs over a larger surface area, driving AES power handling up to 1800 W.
18TLW3000 design features include a large displacement suspension system which, in conjunction with a fiberglass reinforced, straight ribbed cone allows an ultra-linear piston action and provides full mechanical control across the entire working range.
In order to furtherly increase power handling and reduce power compression figure, a low density material air diffractor is placed into the backplate venting hole acting as a cooling system, increasing power handling capability and lowering the power compression figure.
18TLW3000 is able to perform properly under inclement weather conditions: the exclusive cone treatment improves pulp strength and gives water repellent properties to both sides of the membrane. In addition, magnetic structure metal plates coating is far more resistant than standard zinc coating to the corrosive effects of salts and oxidization.
