18-inch Powered Subwoofer

Launched in 1995, JBL’s best-selling EON family of PAs set the benchmark for how great a powered loudspeaker system can be.

The JBL EON718S 18-inch subwoofer is part of JBL’s new EON700 Series of powered PAs, which represents a major step forward in innovation and technology by delivering truly intelligible, clearly consistent coverage at any volume level.

The EON700 Series leverages the latest acoustic science, transducer designs, cabinet materials and advanced DSP and control technologies to deliver extraordinary performance in a fully professional, highly flexible, easy to use, portable system.

With four models available, including the 10-inch EON710, the 12-inch EON712 and the 15-inch EON715 powered PA speakers and the 18-inch EON718S subwoofer, EON700 systems cover the needs of today’s working musicians and sound providers.

(Note: JBL EON718S Pro Connect App support is expected in April 2022, pending App Store / Google Play Store approval.)

More Details

Iconic Acoustics, Superior Sound

The EON718S produces smooth, natural bass down to 31 Hz, thanks to a newly engineered acoustic package with a completely redesigned woofer and 1,500 watts of ultra-efficient amplification.

Advanced DSP and Control

The EON718S’s advanced DSP package includes built-in parametric EQ, polarity inversion and speaker delay. Access settings on-speaker using an integrated backlit LCD screen, or from anywhere in the venue using the JBL Pro Connect App. The EON700 Series’ built-in Bluetooth 5.0 audio streaming (full-range speakers) and control take advantage of the newest protocol’s security features, low latency, broad range and improved audio fidelity.

System Versatility

The EON718S subwoofer features a threaded pole mount for full-range speakers and can be easily stacked for cardioid configurations. Full-range models can be used as main PA speakers or floor monitors. Indexed feet molded into enclosures enable a range of acoustic configurations and secure stacking for traditional stand-up configurations and convenient storage and transport.

Rugged and Reliable

All audio products have useful lives, and JBL engineers are committed to making that lifespan as long as possible—not only in terms of reliability, but in terms of how good the system sounds every time it’s turned on.

EON700 Series full-range speakers feature FEA optimized composite enclosures, taking advantage of injection-molding and mechanical-shaping techniques for added durability without sacrificing cabinet size or performance. The EON718S subwoofer is housed in a rugged 15-ply birch enclosure; computer-optimized ergonomic handles make moving these speakers and subwoofers a breeze.

Like every JBL Professional product, the 718S undergoes stringent testing that goes above and beyond any conditions the product would face in the real world. Our industry-leading 100-hour power test ensures longevity so musicians and audio engineers can rely on JBL components in any scenario.
