June 26, 2008 by Mobile Beat

LAS VEGAS, Nevada- June 18, 2008- Built by the same team that created Mackie’s best-selling loudspeakers, the TAPCO THUMP TH-18s Active Subwoofer delivers Mackie active technology at a TAPCO price. Coupled with the TAPCO THUMP TH-15A loudspeaker, the THUMP TH-18s gives consumers an affordable active system ready to go.Housed in a rugged, ported bass-reflex enclosure and featuring an ultra-efficient 500-watt Class-D amplifier design, the TH-18s provides amazingly accurate low-end response-from 35Hz-125Hz. The high-current switching power supply means it’s ready for worldwide use, and it’s lightweight, so musicians won’t break their back on their travels.

“The TH-18s is the perfect complement to the highly demanded TH-15A loudspeaker,” says Mackie product manager, Gilbert Perales. “Their sophisticated circuitry and durable construction makes this pair the most powerful-and portable-active live sound reinforcement system in their class. Together you have a complete-and completely affordable-“plug-and-play” active system perfect for a band, small club or DJ setup.”

The TAPCO THUMP TH-18s includes stereo I/O and pass thru for flexible connectivity as well as stereo High Pass output (120Hz). The sub also features a Polarity switch, Rear Clip LED and comes with a standard pole mount for the TH-15A. The TAPCO THUMP TH-18s will be available domestically in September 2008 and have an MSRP of $699.99.

TAPCO revolutionized the pro audio industry back in 1969 with the very first 6-channel PA mixer specifically made for rock ‘n’ roll. Designed by audio guru Greg Mackie, the first TAPCO mixer was priced just right for starving musicians and durable enough to withstand mammoth-levels of on the road wear and tear. Today, TAPCO has been reborn-backed by the engineering and product development horsepower of Mackie. TAPCO is a LOUD Technologies Inc. brand. For more information visit: http://www.tapcoworld.com.
