The design of EAW's Redline series - a family of powered loudspeakers - is targeted to make life easier for live sound professionals, from corporate events to festivals.

The RL18S includes a complete on-board 1,000-watt electronics package mated to a highly-customized precision transducer. In addition to signature EAW acoustical design, DynO™ algorithms optimize the power transfer from amplifiers to transducers to audience, to optimize headroom and integrity of sound at maximum output. Push-button cardioid functionality (using two or more RL18S subwoofers) keeps low-frequency energy off the stage and on the audience, and a rear-panel LED mute keeps Redline invisible in aesthetically-sensitive situations.

The RL18S enclosure incorporates EAW’s signature SB enclosure rear angle to minimize input panel visibility in cardioid mode, integral road glove-ready wood handles and sleek but strong-sculpted grilles on RoadCoat™ enclosures that can take a beating without showing it.

EAW RL-18S Features:

  • Superb sound quality at any output level due to custom-designed transducers and porting, signature EAW Focusing™ and DynO™ dynamic optimization processing and 1,250 watts of bi-amplified Class-D Power Factor Corrected amplification
  • Road-ready EAW Roadcoat™ wooden enclosure with integral glove-ready handles, pole cup and M8 suspension points
  • Enclosure depth is optimized so that, with one subwoofer rotated, cardioid pattern can be generated in seconds with two button presses
  • Recessed input panel with push-button cardioid functionality, rear-panelLED mute function, robust PowerCon inlet and loop connectors and LED mutefunction for visually-sensitive environments
