Yorkville LS1208 Subwoofer

The Yorkville LS1208 Subwoofer is an 18-inch, 2000-watts subwoofer designed to deliver optimized high output low frequency sound. With 35Hz - 200Hz frequency response, horn-loaded bass-pipe cabinet design and a solid 5/8-inch birch plywood construction, the LS1208 is one of the highest output subwoofers available at any price.

The Yorkville LS1208 Subwoofer incorporates the "basspipe" a multiple flare horn, connected to an organ like pipe, slowly flaring to the mouth. The bandwidth is narrowed, optimized to a specific range in the lower registers. Outdoor measurements show very smooth, very high output in the 35Hz to 200Hz range. This is the highest efficiency that you may have ever seen for a single 18" driver enclosure, especially with a gross volume of only 22 cubic feet. In addition, a significant gain is achieved when using two units side by side as the mouth nears maximum acoustic load.

Additional research has developed a woofer with significantly higher power handling than any other speaker that Yorkville currently uses, making the Yorkville LS1208 one of the highest output subwoofers available at any price. Performance, packaging, and overall value make the Yorkville LS1208 a benchmark.

Suitable for touring or fixed installations, the cabinets are constructed of 15mm 11-ply Baltic Birch with heavy internal bracing for reduced resonance and better durability. The enclosure is covered in a black carpet covering and incorporates metal corner protectors, rugged curved anti-resonant metal grilles, and 1/4" or Speakon™ input connectors. An optional finish of black ultrathane paint (LS1208B) is also available. Additionally, the Speakon™ connectors feature a configuration switch which allows instant reversal of Speakon™ jack pinouts for easy single wire hook-up using optional four wire Speakon™ cables. The Yorkville LS1208 includes tilt-back wheels and top/rear mounted corner handles for better maneuverability and stacking.
