The LS608 incorporates efficient quasi-horn loading on its 1400-Watt 18" driver to combine the best of both worlds - smooth, deep, powerful bass and remarkable compactness. Suitable for touring or fixed installations, the cabinet is constructed of 15mm 11-ply Baltic Birch with heavy internal bracing for reduced resonance and better durability, all covered in rugged black carpeting. An optional finish of black ultrathane paint (LS608B) is also available. Hardware includes metal corner protectors and a heavy-gauge metal grille. Amp hook-ups and sub inter-connections are made simple with parallel pairs of 1/4" and Speakon.connectors. Additionally, the Speakons are regulated by a configuration switch which allows instant reversal of the pinouts for easy single-wire hook-up using optional four-wire Speakon cables.
The LS608 and LS808 include flush, top-mounted stand adapters so that optional speaker poles may be used to mount full range enclosures above - avoiding the need for separate tripod stands. The LS608 and LS808 both feature dual, side-mounted, inset carry handles making it easier for two people to carry them. The LS808, LS1004 and LS1208 have tilt-back wheels and top/rear mounted corner handles for better maneuverability and stacking.

Truely the best bang for the buck sub on the market today. This sub will blow you away. It may look small, but the sound this thing produces is amazing. Im pushing 900 watts into each of my 4 LS608s. Ive managed to cover 800 people with these subs. They can really throw the sound well. Even in the largest of rooms you can still feel the bass in the back. I highly recommend them to anyone on a budget.

Ease of Use:
I play in a national touring band (club level) we had a complete Bag End system with 4 subbs, we would blow one of these about every 3 months NEVER had enough solid low end. Then we went to (2) Peavey Sp-118 subs, better, but still funky low end EQ, and they were HUGE heavy! we then got 4 LS608 subs 2 U15 tops, these are AMAZING!! the subs project great, are tight, solid the power amp is only using a little more than half power at top volume (loud!) we don't use any amps on stage, we all go direct , so it needs to solid. The subs can be moved by one guy, although we move them with 2 just to make it easier, I can't recommend these subs enough....I've also used JBL's , but nothing even comes close to these for the money...and also check out the tops (U15) we only use 2 cabs instead of 4 and NEVER redline the system!

Ease of Use:
I've always used JBL's in the past, but nothing comes even close to these speakers. I own two of these LS 608 and most the times all I really need is just one sub. These speakers are amazing!!!! I have got rid of all my JBL's and now I only used Yorkville's with no regrets!
