Is this speaker any good? 18″ JBL K | The Gear Page

Results 1 to 4 of 4. I have a 8. I want to use it for helping the lowest octave in an electric bass rig that already uses a pair of Ks all running in full rangeand sometimes as a sub woofer in a small PA system.


I jb, advice as to which 18″ 1k51 I should use. I think the K would sound fine in both applications, but I suspect the would put out more deep low end. Would the be able to handle the transiants of an electric bass low end? Which would work better in my ported 8. I would attempt to tune the enclosure to optimize which ever driver I select.

It will give you a brighter sounding bassline. In comparison I think you might find the a bit muddy sounding.

My choice would be the K for its definition and transient response. BTW, we used to use the E,s as subwoofers in my place years ago, and they sounded amazing. Very quick and jbp. The sound was centered on the strike of the drum.


I switched to the JBL: I played with the in here and it has more deep low end, but not enough punch! If your playing electric bass this is important as bass guitars go well up into the midrange.

The K is an awesome bass guitar driver with great transients and much better response above Hz than the Either 18 will work but if your main use was for bass guitar I would choose the K All times are GMT The time now is Extra Tabs by vBulletin Hispano.
