EVL-18 | 18" 2,500 Watt Max Power Car Subwoofer

Coil Configuration
  • The Skar Audio EVL-18 D2 18-inch dual 2-ohm subwoofer redefines the concept of low-end sound reproduction. The engineering that went into developing the EVL series is simply amazing, and it shows in the sound quality and performance that this subwoofer demonstrates. The EVL-18 can deliver incredibly accurate and powerful bass, due to a variety of unique, advanced design features that put this subwoofer in a class of its own.

    Conservatively rated at 2,500 watts peak power, the EVL-18 D2 features a massive high flux, double stack ferrite motor structure - which delivers the driving force behind the tremoring lows this subwoofer can produce. Combine the motor with the black coated 3" high temperature voice coil of this driver, as well as the advanced air flow cooling design of the basket, and it quickly becomes evident why this woofer is capable of being played at the highest levels of output for hours on end.

    Furthermore, the high roll foam surround incorporated into the design of this subwoofer is one of the reasons it can produce those ultra-low-end frequencies with such responsiveness. The suspension design of this subwoofer features the EVL's signature red, single damper, two-layer spider - which connects to the coil former with premium stitched lead wires. All these incredible features make this EVL subwoofer the unequivocal choice when looking for a high-quality car subwoofer.

Good bass fit into my setup fairly quickly

Came early had very little problems with installation worked well with my power acustic amps just be prepared to reinforce your box mine could not handle how much air these push but once you get that figured out there is truly nuthing like these for the price.

Unbelievable sound quality from a mid level 18" subwoofer !

Okay this might be a bit long winded :) lol
First off, the fact that this sub woofer gets such fantastic reviews here on the Skar website, tells me that pretty much all of the reviewers here understand that the enclosure is everything ! Pretty dumb that on Amazon, their are only 7 ratings for this sub woofer, with like a 3.5 rating. All that tells me, is that half of those reviewers have no idea about the importance of a good enclosure. Kills me to see people blaming the sub woofer, for their own shortcomings. But I digress...

I've been into car audio, and building enclosures for more than 30 years. So this time around, I wanted to do something different.... Passive radiators. I decided to build a 5 cubic foot box, with two Dayton 15" passive radiators, and I used 150gms of weight, on each of them, for a tuning of 30.48 hz. I'm giving this sub woofer right about 1300 wts.

So the morning before I put it in the truck, I told myself, Okay, if this sub "only" hits really deep bass, or bass heavy music well.... so be it. I can always get my SQ fix in my car, with my little 8" sub. But right from the moment I fired it up, I was absolutely stunned ! Not only does it make ridiculous low constant bass notes (as one might expect from an 18" sub with good power), but much more surprisingly, it also plays such tight, snappy kick drums, guitar bass, old school rock, and stuff that doesn't even have much bass ! Every other sub woofer that I have ever built, would start to sound like garbage, if you pushed too hard, where there was not a lot of bass signal, but not this one ! So, in spite of the fact that this thing plays techno / electronic 20-25hz bass so well (fun for demos), I've actually been listening to more old school stuff... just because I can ! The point is though, it plays everything great ! Whatever my mood, this sub woofer is down with it :)

I can see this sub woofer setup staying around for a long time, while I work on several other aspects of my system... sound deadening, electrical upgrades, DSP tuning, etc.

So, long story short, out of probably 30 enclosures I have built, for everything from 8"s to 18"s, this is absolutely the best, most musical setup I have ever created :) But I mean really, who uses an 18" sub woofer because they are shooting for SQ ? So freaking ecstatic with the outcome :) Thank you so much Skar :)

Best Value Out There

I am very impressed with this sub! I went with the EVL18 because of it’s value. I read reviews saying it sounds even better than other brands, which cost even more. Now that I have the sub, I second that. My last sub was a Rockford Punch 15, and this sounds cleaner, and gets much louder too! In the picture, I have the Skar 18 next to my Rockford 15, and the Skar towers the Rockford! I have the Skar in a 4.5c/ft box tuned to 31hz and this gets low! The box takes up most of my trunk, but that’s a trade off for killer bass. Definitely worth it in my opinion! I will definitely be getting more Skar products in the future!
