Where very low frequency extension is required, the NEXT LAs218 or the LAs418 are the precisely matched subwoofers for the LA12 and LA212X family.

These front-loaded, bass-reflex, subwoofers, housing two long excursion, very high power 18" drivers, deliver magnificent precision and punch in the extreme low frequency band at incredible pressure levels.

The LAs418, by the cabinet additional volume with optimized port tuning, and by the two 18" Neodymium transducers featuring extremely high peak-to peak excursion capability, delivers true sub performance down to 24Hz at -10dB.

The loudspeakers rigidly braced cabinets are constructed from 18mm Baltic birch plywood and protected by rigid metal grills and the side panels incorporate two handles. Four rear mounted 100 mm wheels and two NL4 connectors are also included.
