The 118 has a new bass driver, with a great deal of research into cone materials, the new 118 unit excels in bass and mid-range performance and is further helped by a phase plug. The bass driver is loaded through a port making a reflex design, it also has a new magnet assembly giving a better bass response with a more open and better dispersion on mid-range frequencies.
The tweeter has our iconic ProAc 20mm tweeter to cover high frequencies which it does in a sweet and detailed manner. A new crossover has been design to match the two units to give a wonderfully large sound stage with pinpoint imagery. The 118 is excellent on all types of music and more efficient than previous models, which make it suitable for lower powered valve and transistor amplifiers.
