I have tried them on low level. The Boss just killed my QSC and I can hear that this is better than JBL SRX818sp. Taking cover ��. I know because we get sponsored by JBL on some of our festivals. Hehe!

Damn bro, I'm happy for you. Can you get us a close up of the 4 knobs on the back of the subs. I got bassboss to do a side by side with the jbl srx828sp. They ordered one, and said the testing should be completed next week. They seem to have killer customer service, and are very accomodating. Keep us posted. How many kw-181's do you have?

Looks beastly! They are very accommodating by testing their product head-to-head with any comers. Having more like this out in the wild will only build their popularity. I like seeing that Made in USA on the box too. :ussmug:

Do they have grill foam options so one cannot see the driver?

I'll snap some pictures later this afternoon. Customer service is top notch, Lian is pretty good in handling all of the non technical issues. Then David and the rest of the tech are there to support you on any problems with the unit. I do have a pair of QSC KW181 at hand. It will take atleast 3 or 4 just to go against the boss. Unfortunately there no way I can have this beast blasting, may be a shootout around LA area if anyone is interested.

I'm pretty sure they can provide a foam on that grill if you request it. Yeah, Made in USA is the first thing I noticed when these bad boys arrived. Glad to support an American made products. These boxes have the actual rating on them. It's like Lexus VS BMW! Beemer always have a conservative specs vs Lexus which have a higher specs on paper. You just have to try it to believe it...

I don't have to proper tool to measure the maximum SPL, but from what I'm hearing it should be able to deliver what's specified. I'll leave that part to the expert on measuring device, like smaart or LMS.

I'm inclined to believe those graphs considering they (may) have measured them all head-to-head. Most other manufacturers don't have the balls to go that route and direct compare their product to another. Maybe that's not common practice for a reason but I like that BassBoss did it. :-)

So what if BB averages 5dB SPL louder from 30Hz - 50Hz but 2dB lower from 50Hz - 90Hz than the SRX828? What would be your move?

Well I'm not trying to hold them to specific numbers, specs or smaart.......

I'm more interested on if they can equal the output of two qualities 18's like 2 vrx918sp or a properly powered srx728. I'd be happy with just a simple side-by-side A/B.

That's easy, anything less than a 3db difference is inconsequential so the BB would still be the better of the two if that scenario was to be the actual differences.

Okay, if they were the equivalent of two of your VRX918SP's, what would that mean to you... would that have you re-thinking and possibly going the SSP18 route? I'm just curious because they seem like stellar subs, especially for the typical bass-reflex design. I can't think of a knock on them except the lack of grill foam to cover the driver (and that's just my preference).

There are all kinds of tradeoffs in sub design and different solutions are going to be better for different people. The Bassboss with its big box and expensive driver most certainly outperforms the QSC and goes deeper.. but does it outperform a pair of the QSC.. which cost the same as a single Bass Boss, *when compared within the working range of the QSC* ??? If not.. and that is quite paossible that it does not, or even if it's a close race.. then there are.some people for whom the KW181 might still be the better choice even tho the Bass Boss is a superior box.

And some for whom the Bass Boss would be the better choice.

When you get into the higher end JBL and other comparisons on par with that in terms of size and price range of course there will be better boxes or worse boxes but it is doubtful you will be beating anything 2 to 1 in favor of any sub.

Ultimately the Bass Boss is a reflex sub with a third party driver (RCF I think in this case, tho I know he has used McCauley) and a third party amp. So yea, buy an expensive top of the line driver and an expensive amp in a properly designed solidly made box and yea it is going to rock. Ported subs are well understood technology. SO you paid the price for quality so you get that. There's no real magic here. JBL can do the same thing but they are limited to using their own drivers.. if someone has a better driver they still use their own. But they make some great stuff so it's not exactly going to be vast differences.

JBL use their best drivers on their Vertec. Those are a lot better than their SRX line, but then you have to pay for the price. BassBoss have drop their prices since they have found a new amp plate besides Powersoft. I was informed that their new sub amp plate performs better than Powersoft on sub duty.

Did a frequency response comparison measurement QSC with blue and BB with burgandy curve, but I wont call this official. Non calibrated mic and not an ideal environment, you'll notice both sub suffered similar roll off around 70Hz and above.

Basically, it puts the QSC sub to shame all the way up to about 70Hz. At 40Hz, it's more than twice as loud!

Man just got some bad news today about these working out for me. No Hi-pass output. They only pass thru full signal. As you guys know my 745's have no on-board crossover, so I would need to bring my mini-drive, or omnidrive. That's exactly what I'm trying to get away from, additional equipment.

Based on the charts.. a pair of KW181 beats a single SSP118 from around 55Hz up. Below that, the SSP118 beats the pair of KW181's.. more and more as you go lower.
So basically, if you have got tops that need to be crossed at 100Hz, the 118 isn't really the right sub.. it is clearly designed to go with larger 15 inch and dual 15 tops that cross lower. If you have got 12 inch tops you are better off with the pair of KW181 (at around the same price as the single 118).. and no you won't go as low but them's the breaks.

Dj Onyx
12-12-2015, 12:33 AM
Tops are crossed over at 100 Hz and the sub is at 80Hz that will avoid lobes in between.

I can't imagine how.. when you have got two speakers with poor capability at 80-90Hz, and then you further reduce their relative output in that range, it seems likely that you'll have a dip in response there... Sure, if you have them time aligned correctly and they are stacked, you'll also have coupling gain. If they aren't.. you won't. But either way, an asymmetry of that magnitude is probably a bit much, and it doesn't change the fact that the max SPL is just severely limited in that range.. which is vitally important for a clean kick sound. I guess if you're mainly into gangsta rap which doesn't have much kick it's not an issue.

Thanks. As i thought speakerpower amp plates being used on the subs. Good shit right there, made in California I think. I think they use powersoft plates on top boxes. OEM'd to Bassboss specs. So what are your early impressions?

Ran this single sub at full tilt last night, my brother and I are surprised on how this single sub shaking the room. That low frequency I usually hear on the Vertec 4880, now can be achieved in smaller package. I can't wait to get both subs running side by side. Initial sound check was great, the staff has informed me that they can hear the system on the lobby that is 200+feet away then some walls. It put a smile on my face when they said that the system sounded good! Before we pack up I just have the sub bumping by it self and the staff are just amazed talking about the bass they have heard. Lol! So everything went well and much better than I expected. David Lee called me personally last Thursday, asking about the subs. We talked about technical stuff and I have requested if he can add a reverse polarity on the amp plate. I found that very useful on a room with odd dimension and as well when I need to use the wall as my last resort. It can also be used if my system gets big again to do cardioid set up. BassBoss will support you to modify thier product based on your requirement. So I'll send the amplate back early next year to implement that option.

Used the sub for the second time, still using one and this beast will just keep pounding. It sounds like it's indestructible, I never worry about hitting the limiter because there is no LED for it. This is a good value for rental, feed everything you can and it will deliver without anything to worry about.

I have finally used both subs last night without coupling, one sub per side. BASSBOSS is a killer sub not even close to those SRX 828. Totally different level, even my buddy that has the SRX 828 was in for a surprise. Shook the whole place and sounded like a club, hotel managers are amazed how these system sounded. They have never heard such thing in their banquet hall like this, as the manager was asking what type of speakers I have? We just kept pounding the bass and we can hear it from the outside of the Hotel building. Not trying hype things here, but it's just amazing. So if you are looking for sub look no further! SSP118 will put that grin in your face. It's worth every penny that I have spend and very satisfied with the end results.

Yup, that pretty much applies to quality gear! Atleast I'm satisfied with just two subs which I normally bring four JBL SRX718s a year ago. You want premium bass in small package this is the way to go. Even with one sub is already overkill on my Dj events. It's better to have more than being short on bass. QSC KW181 are out, any takers?

I actually spoke to David Lee... nice dude! He explained how he ran his frequency response tests and he even offered to freight one of my Danley TH-118's to his facility for a test. I don't think his mighty SSP118 would meet that challenge but they are definitely a sub I'd strongly consider for a powered one-stop 18" solution. Like the TH-118, the SSP18 also uses top-notch B&C drivers and their amps are by Speakerpower.

Keep posting your experiences Onyx. Although I like the SRX800 series, I'd circumvent their SRX818P (easily) for a pair of these. We'll see how the SSP118 stands up against the SRX828 when they run those tests.

I knew it from the time I heard a single BassBoss it does produce more bass on the lower spectrum. I won't count on the JBL 828sp against a single BassBoss SSP118, expecting that it will be louder at 65hz and above. So far, I'm really happy with the data and using single box is more important when doing smaller event and with additional box it's gets better. If I only have the truck space then no doubt Danley TH118 is they way to go.

+1 on their customer service. BassBoss will exchange my amplate next year with the latest revision! You can't see that anymore with other company not unless it's a recall. The price may turn everyone away, but you will get what you paid for! Made in U.S.A. is not a cheap market! This company will give you a quality materials from the ground up on their products and support. David did a great job on testing those competitors products and he has been thorough with it, like he always does when I asked him before I even bought my subs.

88Lbs. It's just like a single QSC KW181, this bad boy made my loading easier whenever I'm on solo mode. By the end of the night I'm not too tired loading even though it's a bit slower. Worth saving my back with the Boss @ 125Lbs. Plus the sub dolly.

I will give you 3-4 more gigs before you start leaving that heavy azz dolly at home to collect dust:lol:

Nah! I have to use it regardless when I'm all by my self. With another set of hand I don't have to.

For the money the srx828 wins...the srx828 can be had at $1600 now this is a no brainer....even in the discussion between the bassboss ssp118 and the srx828 bassboss admits the srx828 is louder at certain frequencies....another thing is i wonder if they actually connected the software app to tweak the srx box to get even more spl out of it...im seeing many comment here saying the bassboss comepletly blows the srx828 out the waters and thats not the case.

Lol! It all depends on the situation here. I rather spend extra money on single box than a dual sub. Being a mobile Dj single sub is more desirable, hence I don't have a truck space, but I have figured out an easier way to load this sub on my mini van without using the lift. Due to my scoliosis, I can't really lift more than 90Lbs. I can't afford to buy a bigger vehicle either, that will drive my cost higher. If you like bass that has a combination of horn and deep bass, hands down BassBoss won't let you down.

well that makes more sense for you if its you alone and dont have the transportation space the bassboss is a better choice....me i have 3 sons and a tundra truck to help me move equipment for all my gigs so for the money and the quality of these subs it was a no brainer...these subs throw some major bass if you look at the comparison bassboss did you can see how much low spl the srx828 can dish out...ive already own 2 and just got a sweet quote on another 2 that will leave me with 4 to tackle any size gig i get for the upcoming summer...

No doubt its highest on the upper range but not a whole lot on the lower frequency due to dual motor. I'm not trying to compete here, but we are comparing apples and orange not the same if take out the cost. I'm sure 2 BassBoss will outperform the SRX.

Easy to figure out, just add 6db to the BassBoss chart to figure out roughly what a pair will do.

look at the chart again....for the price of 2 bassboss i could get 4 srx828 and still have money left over for other equipment..

However if you want to compare offerings for offerings BassBoss has some SERIOUS contenders (as long as your wallet can suppourt them) that JBL as of yet has no answer to.

That's a good one Bill! But not a direct answer to powered speakers. Yup that's a louder bigger and heavier box. Plus you need an amplifier and for sure a crew to move that beast. However the frequency response is similar to BassBoss tuning, with the exception that the VTX goes much deeper. Totally different from the SRX.

just curious whats the amp draw on the bassboss and do you use any dp processing like a driversrack pa2? i think i read somewhere theres no build in crossover on them...and what tops do you use with them?

Keep in mind that BassBoss is the re-named BassMaxx & they still offer their old technology as well such as the X3c trip or their T-line subs. They seemed to of gone conservative with their new products but even with that, not all of their new products are even listed on their site such as their dual 21" reflex cabinet .

I haven't really measured the current draw on this box, but a 20 amp circuit is enough for my 4 QSC KLA tops and 2 BassBoss SSP118. On smaller gig, 2 QSC K12 and a single BassBoss SSP118 detuned by 6 db. No outboard DSP needed on all of my speakers. Just direct plug and play.

Almost six months of use still pumping like when it was new! Cops showed up early to turn the system down.

seriously ? that's it ? that's all we get ?

You guys really need to do better on the picture quantity from various angles of ALL gear while maintaining good quality.

From a "gear whores" prospective this is just not satisfactory.

ps. And I mean that in a nice way, thank you ;)

Not a lot of change for Dj setup, but it's more for a live sound. David is implementing a cardioid feature on the amplate and finalizing the silk screen.

Hey Dj Onyx, do you think one of these can keep up with a JBL SRX835p?

One sub is okay for indoor, but prefer the dual BassBoss 218 for your tops.
