The 2,200-Watt MILAN M18B is a powered portable band pass 18" subwoofer that is designed for maximum bass extension for both portable and permanent install applications. M18B’s discrete inputs are equipped with balanced, combination ¼ " jack/XLR connectors and a shared Level control, making them ideal for a wide range of music sources, from mixing consoles, low impedance microphones, guitars and keyboards.
Bandpass enclosures are extremely efficient, creating maximum bass output within a specific frequency range by increasing the acoustic load presented to the driver. The low distortion bandpass design utilised in the M18B reinforces the bass musical instrument frequencies, and steep cut-off slopes ensure an effective acoustic transition for use with MILAN Series full-range loudspeakers. A typical application could consist of an M18B providing the low-frequency bass extension for one, or two MILAN Series top cabinets.
Thanks to our revolutionary Class-D amplifier technology, we are able to provide 2,200 Watts of output power with incredible sonic performance in an easy-to-use, ultra-portable and lightweight package. Class-D amplification makes all the difference, offering the ultimate in energy efficiency and eliminating the need for heavy power supplies and massive heat sinks. This amazing technology makes it possible to design and build extremely powerful products that are significantly lighter in weight than their traditional counterparts, while using less energy and protecting the environment. The lightweight Switch Mode Power Supply, coupled with the industry-leading KLARK TEKNIK Digital Signal Processing (DSP) module, provides dynamic equalisation and sophisticated limiting functions, ensuring optimal performance and long-term reliability.
The onboard control panel features a subwoofer Level control, a polarity switch for proper phasing with your loudspeakers, and a switchable Boost filter (set at 100 Hz), which ensures correct integration with your system. An additional filter allows the selection of Speech (for enhanced voice intelligibility), or Music for the broader frequency range required for the high-fidelity reproduction of musical content. Convenient XLR Thru connectors send both input signals to your powered full-range loudspeakers, or to additional powered subwoofers.
The M18B’s enclosure consists of solid birch plywood with a hard wearing semi matt black paint finish, and is ribbed internally to eliminate resonances and to minimize vibration. Plated steel castors with rubber tyres are provided for easy transport, and the standard pole-mount socket allows powered loudspeakers to be mounted, either vertically or raised higher and angled down to optimise audience coverage. Mains power is connected via a non-locking IEC socket with integrated fuseholder. The illuminated front badge can be operated in one of three modes: permanently on; permanently off ; or to indicate the action of limiting.
