    New compact Subwoofer

    At ShowEast 2015, QSC introduced the latest in its line of compact, space-saving subwoofers. The new QSC SB-2180 subwoofer is the thinnest dual 18 inch subwoofer on the market.  Each driver is loaded into its own internal chamber. An ingenious folded port design minimizes cabinet depth, yet still provides full port volume.  The port also acts as internal bracing, creating a stiffer, less resonant cabinet. All of this allows the enclosure to be at least 20% thinner than any other dual 18” subwoofer you can buy, occupying up to 40% less floor space in your theatre.  In a multi-theatre complex, that extra square footage translates into more revenue-generating seating or concession space.  And, you can stack four on a shipping pallet, significantly reducing freight costs. “Conventional thinking says that subwoofers must be large, refrigerator-sized enclosures,” says Barry…
