From the Manufacturer
The SB products are EAW’s premium subwoofers designed for the most demanding professional applications. A broad range of capabilities and sizes provide the designer with selections that can be specifically matched to their application. Top quality drivers, engineered by EAW, provide the highest output and best sonic performance possible for a given form factor. All SB models are direct radiating, with optimally tuned, vented enclosures. SB subwoofers are the choice where the best sonic performance, highest reliability, and most robust physical construction are required. The legendary SB1000zR is a high output, large-format subwoofer system with proven performance in complementing high efficiency, full-range loudspeakers. It is designed for portable use where the fatter-sounding output of dual 18 inch drivers is desired.
The SB1000zR’s driver mounting maximizes cone area and minimizes frontal area, providing the acoustical performance and physical configuration well suited for creating large subwoofer arrays. Its applications include: concert touring, arenas, band/club PA, large houses of worship, large auditoriums/theaters, stage/performer monitoring, drum fill monitoring, and large dance clubs. The SB1000zR is designed to be used with today’s sophisticated digital signal processing to optimize the LF response. EAW’s MX Series processors are recommended for the required crossover and equalization.
