TRX3118 Flyable 2000w 18-Inch Subwoofer


Carvin's TRx 3000 Series feature column and line arrays loudspeakers accompanied by higher output flyable subs and regional tour level events. Like the TRx 2000 Series, these enclosures are made from road worthy multi-ply Baltic Birch and covered in weather and UV resistant DuraTex™ coating. Steel powder coated grills, handles, pole mounts and flyware along with stacking dolly boards and shock mount, tour-duty amp rack cases. All protected by a 5 year warranty. 

The TRx3118 is our most powerful single 18-inch flyable Subwoofer system. The high power, 18-inch woofers features a 4-inch voice coil with 9.75mm of linear excursion and low temperature high peak power capacity. The box is designed to be ground stacked, or with the featured SureFly™ rigging matched to the TRx3210 for ground stacking with rigging TRX3210s in an arc, flown with TRx3210s underneath (as shown at left), or flown independently. The enclosure's four deep large corner located ports produce a very strong structure, and coherent sub frequency output vertically and horizontally. This provides the idea low frequency coupling in multi box hangs. The added strength and rigidity of the corner ports puts all the force of the speaker out the front and into the room, and not wasted vibrating the cabinet walls. Three top pole mounts feature a 16.5-inch spaced dual pole system for suspending two TRx3210 speakers, and a single centered pole mount for suspending a TRx2115 or TRx12N. The enclosure is constructed of CNC machined 13-Ply Premium Russian Baltic Birch with a steel powder coated front grill. The crossover includes two 4 pin twist lock high current connectors mounted on FR4 double sided circuit boards for solid construction and durability. The optional DB3118 dolly board locks on the front of the cabinet for easy transport and front protection. 

Includes side mount brackets for suspension. Add other fly hardware below. 

Applications include: 

- Subwoofers For Installed Line Array Systems
- Large Subwoofer Array Hangs
- Outdoor events

TRX3118A Active 1900W Flyable 18-Inch Subwoofer



For systems, contact Carvin Audio professionals at 800.854.2235 for assistance in consulting, designing and ordering your system! 

Package Includes: 
TRx3118A Active 18-inch subwoofer
SUREFLY SF3118 Hanging hardware mounted
PowerCon™ AC cord/jumper kit 

The TRx3118A combines our most powerful single 18-inch flyable Subwoofer with a 2500W Active module with an additional amplifier output for running a top main cabinet. The high power, 18-inch Faital Pro™ woofer features a 4-inch voice coil with 9.75mm of linear excursion and low temperature, high peak power capacity. The TRx 2500W Active module features X-DRIVE DSP processing with up to 48DB/oct crossover filters, parametric EQ and limiting. The box is designed to be flown with TRx3210s underneath or flown independently. The extra amplifier output can power 2 passive TRx3210’s with DSP preset pre-programmed. It can be ground stacked using the SureFly™ rigging to curve-array up to four TRx3210A’s. Three top pole mounts feature a 16.5-inch spaced dual pole system for suspending two TRx3210 speakers and a single centered pole mount for suspending a TRx2115 or TRx3903’s. Several cabinet set ups are programmed into presets for simple rig, connect, select and play. Made in the USA. 

Active 2500W system 

The 2500W Active, X-Drive DSP processed module provides 1500W of bridged amplifier power for the internal 18-inch subwoofer and an additional 1000W amplifier output for external cabinets. The internal X-Drive DSP processing maximizes performance output and protection using up to 48DB/oct crossover filters, parametric EQ, alignment delay and limiters. Turn on the enhanced bass and the ultra low end will come alive lowering the cabinet’s frequency response another 15Hz and boosting the 35-50Hz response. The DSP will control the output to keep this added response inside the limits of the speaker. 

Rig, Connect, Select and Play 

The TRx3118A’s SureFly™ rigging connects to more TRx3118A’s or TRx3210A’s in both Flying and ground stacking systems. The internal X-Drive DSP amplifier module is equipped with Neutrik™ locking PowerCon™ AC connectors for maximum energy transfer and a secure connection. Select the preset for your line array, column array, or conventional top main setup. Preset programs have been optimized for flying and ground stacking TRx3118A’s powering passive TRx3210’s and TRx3903’s or with active TRx3210A’s. Not using it in a line array or column array? Simply, go to the variable crossover preset and set the crossover frequency and you are ready to play. 

Tour Ready 

The TRx3118A's four deep large corner ports produce a very strong structure and coherent sub frequency output when stacked both vertically and horizontally. This provides the idea low frequency coupling in multi box hangs. The added strength and rigidity of the corner ports puts all the force of the speaker out the front and into the room not wasting power, vibrating the cabinet walls. The enclosure is constructed of CNC machined 13-Ply Premium Russian Baltic Birch with a steel powder coated front grill. The optional DB3118 lid/dolly board locks on the front of the cabinet for easy transport and protection. The DB3118 features four 4 inch wheels. As the cabinets are rolled to their flying position, you can tip them backward and connect the rigging. As the rig is being lifted, the DB3118 can be unhooked and put away. 

Applications include: 

- Subwoofers for Installed Line Array Systems
- Large Subwoofer Array Hangs
- Subwoofer for column arrays
- Outdoor events
