After moisture sealing, the 118s cabinet is painted with a environmentally friendly tough black finish for longer life and lasting looks... The 118sc is covered in a rugged black carpet with the addition of metal corners and feet... The 118s is equipped with flypoints to attach rigging hardware for f lying applications... With its trapezoidal shape, the 118s fits well in a tight cluster with either the 2912 or 2915 enclosures... When used in this configuration, the 118s effectively reproduces the low-end frequencies; the 2912 / 2915's are then used as mid-high cabinets...

The second consideration is to try to obtain as much bass as possible from the subwoofer... A subwoofer hanging in free air is referred to as operating in "full space" since the subwoofer is free to radiate in all directions (omnidirectionally)... A speaker in the middle of the floor or up in the air with its back against a wall is referred to as operating in "half space"... Full space operation will result in about a 3 dB decrease in output as compared to half space... In order to compensate for the decrease in output using a full space configuration, the power amplifier may need to be turned up... Placing a speaker near a large, flat wall and on the floor (quarter space) will boost the bass performance by about 3 dB as compared to half space... The more surfaces the subwoofer is placed against, the fewer the number of subwoofer enclosures are needed to achieve a desired SPL...

After the speaker system has been placed, the crossover point needs to be set for maximum benefit... While the 18" driver in the 118s/118sc is fully capable of accurately reproducing frequencies above 400 Hz, setting the crossover point this high makes time alignment very difficult and the large 18" woofer will start to "beam"... Beaming occurs when lower frequencies are emitted in an approximately omnidirectional pattern while higher frequencies are emitted more on-axis... For the 118s/118sc, this occurs above the crossover points of 400 Hz... If the crossover point is set too high and the subwoofer is placed far from the mid/high packs, bass frequencies will sound like they are being produced in two different locations... Most listeners cannot locate the origin of frequencies below 150 Hz... Setting the crossover point too low (below 80 Hz) wil l not take ful l advantage of the subwoofer because it places too high of a demand on the mid/high packs... For these reasons, a crossover point of ranging between 80 and 200 Hz is recommended depending upon the placement of the speakers...
