The Sub of Doom is an 18” horn loaded, port assisted subwoofer. Available with two driver options, a pair of ferrite BMS 18” drivers as the base offering, with an upgrade to dual neo 18 Sound 18” drivers for increased sensitivity, rms power handling and LF extension.

This box features quad Helmholtz resonators with purposefully turbulent airflow to aid in driver cooling and reduce power compression.

Measurements suggest a –3db point of 36hz in singles with the standard driver. In quads this drops to 30hz. With the premium driver, in singles this box ought to be at -3db at 34hz, in quads this drops to 28hz.

These cabinets / kits are built to order, please allow for a 8-10 week lead time. 

If you're purchasing a flatpack kit, please be sure to check the difficulty levels and advice in the dropdown sections below.

Features and Applications

This is a dedicated subwoofer cabinet. As with all horn loaded subwoofers, it benefits greatly from being used in multiples. We suggest this design really comes alive when you use 2+ together.

Flatpack kits include

  • All panels, cut from 18mm Birch plywood
  • All the screws you need
  • All the bolts and insert nuts you need
  • Gasket tape for the access hatch
  • Wadding
  • A pre-wired NL4 speakon dish, with a gasket
  • 8 metal bar handles with gaskets
  • 4 swivel casters, with heavy-duty internal mounting plates
  • Pre cut port tubing

Flatpack kit build difficulty

Expert. Cabinet building experience is necessary to be able to complete this build successfully. Reasonable build complexity, lots of individual parts potentially including multiple subassemblies. The order of assembly requires careful planning; there is only one way to build the kit. You need a drill / impact driver and glue. You will likely find clamps and a nail gun would be useful as well. Please do not order expert level kits if you are not confident you’ll be able to complete the build.

Acoustic Specifications

Exact acoustic specifications change depending on what driver you put in this cabinet.

We recommend the BMS 18S450 as a good standard option. This is what is in the Standard Loaded cabinet. You can expect a frequency response of 36hz - 200hz @ -3dB with single cabinets. With 4 cabinets, you can achieve 30hz @-6dB.

The 18 Sound 18NLW9601 is a great premium option. This is what is in the Premium Loaded cabinet. You can expect a frequency response of 34hz - 200hz @ -3dB with single cabinets. With 4 cabinets, you can achieve 28hz @-6dB.
