The JBL EON618S active subwoofer is relatively small and, thanks to the handles located on the side panels, is convenient to carry.

JBL EON618S is made in a wooden case with a black DuraFlex finish and is equipped with a removable protective steel mesh, with powder coating and additional damping with an acoustically transparent mesh. The subwoofer is equipped with a large 18-inch (457 mm) bass bass located on the front panel with a two-inch voice coil manufactured by JBL.
