RCF LF18X451 1800W 8 Ohm 18" Bass Driver


Incredibly linear frequency response characteristics, the highest power handling of any comparable 18-inch transducer, the lowest power compression. 


The LF18X451 features a fibre loaded cone assembly along with a high excursion triple roll, constant geometry surround: this combination provides remarkable strength and a peak to peak maximum excursion of 54 mm. The new dual forced hyper-venting system guarantee a very efficient voice coil ventilation for minimum power compression and incredible power handling. A double silicon spider system ensures excellent control during large excursions. A fully optimised T-pole design generate the minimum amount of flux modulation. 


The LF18X451 is ideal in applications where combinations of incredible power handling, reasonable weight and ultra fast time response are required. Perfect for powerful lows in horn loaded sub bass systems or reflex designs.
