B 18i is a compact, powerful LF extension for installed ARES 8i line arrays, enhancing the system’s low end response and directivity.  ARES 8i and B 18i unite with S / MTSub Series subs to form a consistent, high performance, 4-way install line array system.  B 18i is fully compatible with the ARES 8i rigging system and can be flown alongside, on top of or behind ARES 8i elements, or deployed in ground stack / standalone configurations.

The B 18i houses a long excursion 18″ neodymium driver and combines front diffusion, bass reflex, and transmission line design for ultimate efficiency and performance.

B 18i is built with pride in Belgium and coated in tough, weather-resistant polyurea to safeguard your investment. The cabinet front is protected by a rigid metal grill, backed by acoustically transparent foam.

We recommend AUDIOFOCUS or Powersoft amplifiers for use with B 18i.
