BASSBOSS SSP218 Profundo Powered Subwoofer

SSP218 ‘Dub-Ill’ Profundo Powered Subwoofer
• Extended Deep Bass
• Excellent Value
• Super High Output
• Exceptional Sound Quality
• Massive Power
• Unbeatable Reliability
Our original powered, double 18” subwoofer design is a combination of
sensitivity, depth, power handling, fidelity and value. The SSP218 offers
the most cost-effective solution for those who need big bass, providing
huge low end for the price.
Delivering massive output at and above 30Hz, reliably, consistently and
with great fidelity. Modern electronic, jazz, reggae, pop and R&B music
emphasize bass and put tremendous demands on low frequency
loudspeakers. The SSP218 delivers the energy and power of modern music
and it is built to take the stress of doing so continuously, to the extremes,
without fail.
Incorporating innovative new technologies into rigidly braced, large
vented boxes that are optimized for maximum output and reliability.
The SSP218 sustains its output long-term and is practically impossible to
blow thanks to the combination of extremely rugged, very high power
handling, long excursion drivers, carefully optimized cabinet and port design
and several effective but transparent protection systems. The protection
systems effectively prevent thermal overload of the voice coils and minimize
long-term thermal compression while having virtually no effect on the
transient response and peak output of the loudspeaker.
Very high output, low frequency sound with extremely low distortion.
The SSP218 system is optimized for full-power operation and is designed to
operate at full rated RMS power throughout its operating range while the
woofers remain within their X-max specification.
Extremely flat, delivering response that is +- 1.5dB from 32Hz to 100Hz.
No equalization is required to achieve this response. Unlike designs that
require equalization, the SSP218’s tone, response and sensitivity are native
to the design. Systems that require processing to achieve their stated
response are still subject to the physical excursion and thermal limits of
their drivers. Boosting low frequency EQ to achieve extended low-frequency
response results in excessive distortion or woofer damage at full power
unless limiting is applied. The limiting necessary to prevent failure also
prevents the realization of their claimed frequency response at full power.
Engineered to work hard and continue to work where others fail.
The BASSBOSS warranty provides 6 years of coverage against defects in
materials and workmanship. The warranty DOES cover failed drivers,
including burned voice coils, for 2 years from the date of purchase. If a voice
coil, or anything else, fails within the warranty period, replacement parts will
be provided without charge. (See warranty documentation for complete
details). With the peace of mind afforded by plentiful, clean, undistorted
output and comprehensive protection systems, you can confidently push the
SSP218 Subwoofer to levels and depths that would otherwise require more
or bigger cabinets.
Versatile and durable, the cabinet is finished in black textured
weatherproof polyurethane coating. A top-mounted pole socket in each
SSP218 provides for mid-high loudspeakers to be mounted on a straight
speaker pole above the subwoofer. The enclosures also feature four large
rubber feet and corresponding recesses in their tops to facilitate interlocking
the boxes when stacked. The woofers' cones are made from a waterproof
fiber matrix.
