MIAMI GARDENS, FL (06.16.2020) – There has been a high demand for BIG power amps from people using GIANT systems in their boats and off-road vehicles. It is more and more common to see boats, SXS, and various off-road vehicles with sound systems that include multiple subwoofers.
In the past, these enthusiasts would have to load up on multiple amps to drive their subs. New for 2020 , DS18 has now released their most powerful waterproof amplifier made to push big power and keep its compact size and waterproof rating.
The NXL100.1 is truly a sub moving monster that will make you grin from ear to ear when you power it up. This bad boy amp pushes out 1100w at 1 ohm, 900w @ 2ohms, and even at a 4-ohm load will put out 600 watts RMS power.
This is a full range amp, so you are not limited to subs alone on this amp.
You can adjust filters and turn this amp into a 1 channel full range audio all in one mega power amps that will fill all your power craving needs for all your DS18 speakers in your vehicle of choice that needs the toughest of amps.
Check them out on DS18.com for the next step up in the large variety of DS18 NXL line waterproof amps.
MIAMI GARDENS, FL (04.30.2020) – DS18’s new PRO-TWN2 has all the looks of a driver but has been compactly sized to fit into super tweeter dimensions. This new super tweeter’s 1-inch voice coil can handle 100 watts RMS and 200 watts peak and comes with a neodymium magnet which increases the tweeters efficiency and lowers the weight dramatically.
Each tweeter comes with a bass blocker that is included for extra protection against frequencies that would otherwise damage the tweeter. Listeners can feel safe their equipment can play loud and long. These tweeters have a very high sensitivity of 107DB, so they do not require full power to get extremely loud. This opens all up to multiple amp choices for the TWN2 tweeters and provides the versatility listeners look for in powering and using these new tweeters.
The TWN2 has a MSRP – $67.95 each. The specs on the new TWN2 Super Bullet Tweeter are Voice Coil – 1 inch, power handling, RMS watts – 100, Max watts – 200, Sensitivity – 107db, Diaphragm – Composite, Polyimide, Resistance – 4 ohms and Magnet – Neodymium.

DS18 has a new line of charger that is killing the charging and power supply game. Now they have 3 models to fit your charging needs that provide either 60-amp, 80-amp, and a massive 200-amp power supplies that are also active chargers and maintainers.
These rugged and durable chargers have 3 modes. The first is for maintaining your batteries if they are being stored or your vehicle is parked for prolonged periods of time. The charger sends periodic 14v pulses to the battery to make sure it stays at its recommended resting voltage.
The second is for charging your batteries from a very low charged state. In this state of charging, the unit will keep pulsing either 13.8 or 14.4 pulses until the unit detects that the unit is fully charged and at its normal resting voltage, then from there it will stay in maintenance mode. The last feature and best will be power supply mode. In this mode, the chargers will switch to power supply mode and give either 60 amps, 80 amps, and a whopping 200-amp continuous power.
This mode is perfect for if you are needing extra power that your vehicle cannot provide, or if you are stationary and need a lot of power on demand at any moment or constantly. Whether you need a charger, maintainer, or power supply DS18 has you covered.
