LS1801 18-inch subwoofer
Awesome bass for the working musician. Roadworthy for night after night of rockin’ hard.
American designed and built quality
The LS high-end loudspeakers are American made in San Diego, CA. Each enclosure is designed, tuned, and tested using computer software for optimum system performance. Multi-ply Hardwood offers the strength for professional service. Professional Mylar crossover capacitors, high current coils and Speaker Guard high frequency driver protection are just part of the top quality design.
Powerful subwoofer performance
The LS1801 is a very compact high Q subwoofer design to add extended low frequencies to any system. The single 18-inch woofer provides solid low end punch. With its included top pole mount, systems such as the LS112 or larger LS153 can be elevated using an SS4 optional pole to the optimum height. Even the low-end of LS2153 can be extended down to the 30 Hz range by placing the LS1801 underneath. The enclosure is constructed of CNC machined multi-ply Hardwood with heavy gauge steel powder coated front grills. Effective for both permanent and portable applications and covered in black DuraTuff™

"Can't say enough about the professionally built, and excellent quality of Carvin Pro Audio. Purchased the LS1801A as a need to fill in the low end performace of my LS2153's at smaller gigs for punch in certain types of music. Success! The single LS1801NA is great improvement in medium size venues, and saves time and energy versus hauling around the amp rack and having to load it up at the end of the night. Plans are to purchase a second one to utilize for smaller gigs, or DJ services. Thanks Carvin!"

"First of all, ordering from Carvin using their online credit app is simply awesome. Now for the juicy stuff. Big Boom in a little package is what this powered sub will do for your mobile dj set. I got mine with the vinyl speaker cover and would recommend the dolly board for easy transport of this very nice subwoofer. Give it a try DJ's as this really is the best bang for your buck!!!"

"I have been in the band business for 40 years so I've had the opportunity to use tons of sound gear over the years and I recently purchased a pair of these subs for my live band. I had shopped for subs for nearly a year before purchasing these. Here's the reasons why Carvin got the nod........VALUE! No one sells a comprable sub that can come near these beauties. They have great sound quality, are realtively light in weight, compact in size, handle huge power, are made of high-grade materials and American made. I really like the option of having a switchable crossover built in. Great job Carvin! I'll buy more of your products."

"I have recently purchased 2 of these subs for my little working band. We do small to medium size rooms. They're compact, light and handle tons of power. In comparing the specifications with other brands I was really impressed, especially at this price point. All that aside, These little boxes really make a ton of clean low-end. I was quite surprised at how well they work for me during a live performance. I'm very satisfied. Well-done Carvin! I'm buying 2 more soon."
