Yamaha SW118V: 18 inch Subwoofer
Club V - The Evolution Of Sound Reinforcement!
Gigging bands, mobile DJs and houses of worship have helped make the first four
generations of Yamaha Club Series Speakers incredibly popular. The refinements
of generation V continue this success story: larger enclosures for improved
low-frequency performance, improved drivers for higher power handling, redesigned
crossovers, stronger grilles, and dual Speakon and 1/4" connectors.
These cabinets are constructed of high quality particleboard, chosen for its
high strength and elasticity, consistent void free makeup and light weight.
Another great benefit of this material is its environmental friendliness. Made
from southern yellow pine, this material is both abundant and quickly renewable.
Accurate CNC routing machines are used to cut every part, assuring consistency
with tolerances of one ten thousandth of an inch. Skilled technicians assemble
each cabinet by hand, rejecting any defects. Whether covered in durable carpet
or the elastomeric spray coating, heavy steel handles and sturdy pole sockets
make moving and positioning easy.
The drivers, or speakers in these cabinets, are custom made by Eminence Speaker
Corporation to Yamaha's exacting tolerances. Woofers share design features like
high strength curvilinear cones and Dupont Kapton voice coil formers. Oxygen-free
copper voice coils and oversize strontium ferrite magnets are also used to provide
high power handling and long life. The 15" and 18" drivers use cast
aluminum frames to support the massive magnet structure eliminate flex and help
dissipate heat. The compression driver that generates the high frequency sound
uses a pure titanium diaphragm. This 2" dome is one of the largest in its
class, allowing for very high output and low distortion, without the aid of
cooling fluids. It's mated to a 90 degrees x 90 degrees custom designed horn
with excellent dispersion and response.
Crossover networks that divide the signal going to the woofer and compression
driver are constructed with oversized coils, high voltage capacitors, and power
resistors designed to provide the best possible sound quality and minimize loss.
Overload protection is also included to protect the components.
