First choice in passive subwoofers, the LS808 combines an 1400-Watt cast-frame 18-inch bass driver with a rear-loaded bass horn enclosure made from 15mm birch ply covered in rugged black carpeting (a black ultrathane-painted version - LS808B - is also available). The result is an exceptionally efficient sub (105dB@1W@1m) with bass response down to 45Hz and capable of hitting maximum sound-pressure levels of 134dB. Rugged durability backed by a 2/10-year warranty further ensures years of reliable service.
Inputs include parallel pairs of ¼-inch jacks and Speakons™ . Additionally, the Speakon™ connectors are wired to a configuration switch which allows instant reversal of pinouts for easy hook-ups using optional four wire Speakon™ cables.
The LS808 uses flush, top-mounted stand adapters so that optional speaker poles may be used to mount full range enclosures above - avoiding the need for separate tripod stands. The dual, side-mounted, inset carry handles making it easier for two people to carry the sub during load in and set-up. The LS808, LS1004 and LS1208 have tilt-back wheels and top/rear mounted corner handles for better maneuverability and stacking.
Hardware includes four steel inset handles, a steel top-mounted pole-stand adapter, a heavy-gauge curved steel grill and tilt-back wheels.
