    Powered or non powered? Matched with what speakers on top? Portable or non portable?

      If you're not afraid to buy used gear, i've seen various models by EAW at or under $500 at GC used site.

        "Best" depends on the use and criteria specified. At the risk of sounding snarky, for dub-step/EDM in a club setting, "best" means rental at that price point. Mark C.

      All they specified was 2x18 with no further info ? Is it possible this is more of a wish list than an actual rider? Perhaps if you talked to them, they would agree to GOOD 1x18's in multiples?

        No $500 dual 18 is going to meet any riders. The best bang for the buck is the JBL SRX or EV QRX. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

      Do you have any idea how heavy and chunky those community cabinets are??? If you are concerned with rider friendly, those are about as unfriendly as it gets. I give you they are cheap though.

      Can't go wrong? IMO you can burn your money and do better.

      WOW!

        So, help clarify:

        You just want ONE 2x18 sub for less than $500 that will run on your 850W at 4 ohm to go with your two MRX512 tops?

        That community sub was in New Jersey for local pickup only... are you in NJ?

      Unbelievable, IMO. It will cost more to ship that community sub than its worth... and that's assuming its functional.

        ... not to mention if his riders are saying "bring 2x18 subs" that it's STILL not meeting the rider requirements. lol

      There are a pair of EAW LA218z's at GC used for 999 each. Twice what you wanted to pay but true pro level gear at a very nice price. Can't imagine any act you might work with would turn them down.
