WaveSub 182/2 is a passive versatile subwoofer which complements the rest of the loudspeakers with a powerful and deep bass.

The Subwoofer can be used in stereo with speakers with a SPL between 79 - 81 dB (2.83V, 1m).

WaveSub 182/2 is a loudspeaker with drivers of Wavecor . Passive radiators provide deep bass.

The kit is delivered with two of Wavecor SW182BD04 woofers and two of Wavecor PR182BD2 passive radiators.

The loudspeaker has been developed by Bernd Timmermanns.

The crossover consists of:
- a 2nd order low-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the woofer.

The frequency response of this speaker is perfectly linear.

The decay spectrum is nearly perfect.

At medium volume, i.e. 90 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are below 1% above 100 Hz.

Our kit consists of

  • 2x Wavecor Subwoofer SW182BD04, die cast, 8 Ohm
  • 2x Wavecor PR182BD02 Passive Radiator, die cast
  • 2x Binding Post PK31, gold plated (one pair, red and black)
  • 2m Speaker cable 2x2.5 mm2, transparent
  • 3x Allen wood screws, black, 4x25 mm, 8 pieces

Kit with high-end crossover

The high-end kit is delivered with baked varnish air core coils on important parts of the crossover for minimizing microphonic effects. - The current flow through the coil creates a magnetic field which sets the reel of wire in motion. This motion induces a voltage in the coil which adds itself to the signal. The stiffer the reel of wire is, the less the signal will be altered. The capacitors for the Wavecor SW182BD04 mit Wavecor PR182BD2 are of type polypropylen (MKP) Clarity-Cap PWA 160.

The kit with high-end crossover also has a higher load capacity, as the coils in series with the two woofers have a cross-section of 1.8 mm2 instead of only 1.4 mm2.
