Beautiful Tight Effortless Bass!
I am so glad we got these Subs. We have a Rock band that plays medium sized venues bars etc. We did a lot of research, there are alot of good subs out there. We decided these were the best combination of quality size power for us. No research prepared us for the day we unpacked and hooked them up. we put on our test cd Marc Fords song Greazy Chicken. We just stood there with our dumb looks on our face. You know the feeling, when you just got it right, well we got it right. Tight effortless power, cranked them up high couldn't phase them. The indicator light on the front didnt even flinch. We will recommend these to everyone

.Great sub, worked well with my HPR 112i as tops. Impressive low end for its size. A bit heavy but can be managed by one person once unboxed. It comes well packeged which can be a pain trying to carry by oneself. The handles on the sides are great once you have unpacked them. They are much more compact than some of the other powered offerings out there, which is great for those with smaller vehicles. I will definately pick up another sub when the funds become available. I do wish it was a little lighter, but that's the price you pay for a powered wood cabinent.
Not a whole lot of features. Left/Right ins and thrus as well as a pole cup. Unlike some powered subs, it lacks a built in crossover output. Usually not a problem since most powered tops have one anyway except maybe some of the lower priced models. It could be a negative if using passive tops since you'd have to get an external crossover.
Very ruggedly built and heavy. The exterior finish should hold up fine under normal use. From my expirience thusfar, they did not get warm at all during my testing which is great. I like the locking power plug (iec), my only issue with it is that it isn't all the flexible so coiling them is a bit of a pain. I have the same issue with my HPR 112i's, but it is not a deal breaker.
A bit on the expensive side, but compared to other offerings around the price point, you'd have to spend a few hundred more to find a better sub.

.These speakers are absolutely awesome used them at a gig sat. Night and every comment we got which was quite a few was positive. Even from fellow musicians who couldn't believe how great the sound was. I have two of these paired with two DSR 112's and we had a killer sound going. Thanks for making an excellent product

.I bought my first 118 about 8 months ago, absolutely no problems and I love it. Just bought my second dsr118 last month. 1 sub is all you need for small and medium size weddings - I use DXR12 tops, great combo! You'll need at least 2 of these subs for school dances, large events. They are heavy, easy for 2 people though. Lighter subs just don't have the punch. The finish is WAY better than the DXS series sub, but then the DXS has a selectable LPF which you can match with the tops. I can still fit this in the backseat of the car for smaller gigs. Yes there are cheaper subs and more expensive ones, however this is GREAT value for the money, you won't be disappointed.

.I have taught a high school rock band class for 4 years. Over the course of those 4 years we have gradually improved our sound system to include two QSC K12's For our live shows. Some of these shows have included large college basketball arenas and high school football stadiums. We have always run all instruments through our mixing console and our QSC K12's. Sound was good, but not the solid and tight sound that I heard when I heard good weekend bar bands that were running their bands through a stack of EV or JBL Subs. I really wanted to buy the QSC 18 sub woofer but was scared away by the price tag. Bought the used from Custom Guitars Friend with a little cosmetic damage for half of what they wanted for the QSC 18. Can't imagine that the QSC could have been any better. My little high school cover band now has the full, punchy sound that rivals bands that have spent a small fortune on their gear. ( I know, cuz I used to play in one and I know how much the owner of the band spend on the system). We are only running one sub and I can't adequately articulate how the addition of one sub has improved the overall sound of the band. 0 problems with the sub and it has been hauled around in the back of school buses, trailers and pick up trucks for 7 months and over a dozen shows. Never had more compliments on the sound of the band ( and from people that know the difference between good live sound and ok live sound). This is a great addition to any sound system. Can't wait to add another one.

.this subwoofer is really good only thing is you have to have some experience with audio because the protection doesn't automatically turn down bass when the driver is bottoming out or over powered. the upside though is that it is so loud (when turned up) and i broke the windows on my garage...lol
Yamaha DSR118W Active Subwoofer
.This is my 2nd DSR 118 Subwoofer. I couldn't be more pleased with the sound quality. It compliments the DSR 112s and 115s I currently use.

.After using this as a drum sub for less than 6 months, the driver failed. Don't be fooled by the warranty, because they won't cover blown drivers. 's limiting does not protect the driver. Either that, or we had a defective driver. Either way, we are stuck with the bill on a 6mo old product with a "7 year warranty." Save yourself the headache and buy QSC.
Yamaha DSR118W Active Subwoofer
.Perfect companion for the dsr 115.Deep,low end music reproduction with plenty of power to spare.Solid construction,excellent finish and a 7 year warranty for dependability from a company you can trust.I've owned Jbl.Mackie and Ev to name a few and in my honest opinion the DSR series is superior.Check them out at a dealer near you.Be prepared to be enlightened by their performance!!!
