Sub-bass you will remember.

Using a dual chamber cabinet, the WLA-218SUB delivers huge bass in a versatile configuration.

2 x 18” Wharfedale Pro LF transducers with massive 4” voice coils produce up to 138dB SPL – while their cast frame aluminium baskets reduce any risk of mechanical distortion.

The WLA-218SUB cabinet is constructed of 18mm birch plywood and all internal bracing is designed to avoid vibration or physical shape distortion during prolonged high volume use.

This massive subwoofer is designed for ground placement.
