The Electro-Voice Eliminator i™ Sub is a single 18" subwoofer system designed to produce very high-peak output musical material. The Eliminator i Sub can be used either in conventional biamplified operation or in full-range passive mode with the Eliminator i two-way high-peak output stage system in parallel. When used in parallel, the combined impedance is 4 ohms. The internal passive crossover consists of low-pass filter to the 18" DL18BFH.

The system is designed for operation up to 100 Hz (in passive mode). The system can also be used in biamp mode by using an active crossover system with slopes of 24 dB per-octave. Recommended crossover point is 80 Hz when used with a loudspeaker processor/crossover capable of low frequency protection; or, as this is a vented system, a 40 Hz low frequency filter of at least 3rd or 4th order is recommended (18 db/octave to 24 db/octave) to filter out signals below that frequency.

The Eliminator i Sub includes a top-mounted stand adapter and an 18" pole mount for use with the Eliminator i full-range system. Safety concerns limit the use of a pole greater than 18" in length (under no circumstances should a pole of greater than 18" be used with the Eliminator i Sub). The DL18BFH woofer will provide average power handling ratings of 400 watts EIA and peak power ratings of 800 to 1000 watts. The system input connections are ¼" phone. Vented enclosures offer excellent power handling and low distortion in the lowest octave of rated operation. However, it is always advisable to filter material below enclosure tuning to further improve system output and headroom. The Eliminator i should be high-pass filtered to reduce subsonic material below 40 Hz.

Architectural and Engineering Specifications

The loudspeaker system shall be a subwoofer system consisting of one 18-inch low-frequency transducer in a vented quasi band pass design. The system shall be capable of either biamp operation or full-range passive (when used with the Eliminator i™ stage system or other appropriate full-range system). The passive mode shall provide first order low-pass filtering. The system shall have a rated frequency response of 40 Hz to 100 Hz (passive mode) and is capable of extended high-level operation within that range. Power handling (long-term average) shall be 400 watts when EIA RS-426-A 1980 is employed as a test method. The system sensitivity shall be 98 dB (101 dB with ½ space load-common orientation) with a 1 watt input at a distance of 1 meter. The nominal impedance shall be 8 ohms and shall produce a combined impedance of 4 ohms when used with the Eliminator i™, full-range system. Input connections shall be ¼ inch phone input and output.
