Unbelievable to be so loud and so crisp. Only had our system installed for 24 hours and we are in love with it. DS18 knocks it out of the park highly recommend
So after having this speaker bar for over a year I discovered some issues that their customer service wouldn't help correct. First off is I ordered from one of their dealers in my state. Big mistake because DS18 doesn't warranty when you buy through one of their dealers. Second the sound bar I got had what I presume is an older tweeter speaker model. The plastic bullet cone was square and not round as advertised on their website. After near a year the speaker cone started cracking and the speaker rattled. Note the cone plastic is really thin where the screws hold it to the speaker bar. I contacted DS18 for support and sent pics and they said it was from overtightening the screws. Note the screw holes never cracked at the screw site but from down in the cone area out to the edge. It wasn't from overtightening any screws. I've worked electronics for over 30 years and I know tightening screws too much will crack plastic. They wouldn't uphold the warranty on the tweeters even after lengthy emails and phone conversations. I was hoping they would at least meet me in the middle and replace 2 if I bought two new ones. Well that didn't happen either. So I paid out the money and am replacing the 4 tweeters tomorrow with the 4 round ones the package was advertised with. Hopefully this will correct the problem and I won't see cracking anymore or rattling speaker sounds either. Now on to a positive note!!! I love the soundbar and I think they do make quality products. I would recomend them to any jeep owner with audio system upgrade needs. I will purchase from them again!!! But I am a little put out by their customer service!!!
And buy direct from them online and not a local distributor so if you have a warranty issue it may make things more simple to get things corrected
this soundbar is crazy loud and clear! This makes my jeep sound so much better! When i’m cruising with my top and doors off, i don’t hear the wind anymore, i hear my music! I love this soundbar and was kinda bummed i waited so long to make this purchase!
Well during Jeep Beach could not pass up the deal for two of these with the wiring harness’s and upgraded amps. Makes a world of difference, it’s funny at night people look at the Jeep’s and are like what’s going on in there with all the LED action going on. I will say once you get this for your Jeep you are going to want more. Like replacing the 4 speakers in your dash and the desire for a subwoofer or two. Install was easy I will say if you do it alone use ratchet straps to hold up the sound bar or you will be on your back using both feet and a hand to home it up while your free hand puts in the bolts. The color code for the wiring harness instructions are dated look at the end of the harness on the tiny silver lettering. Be sure you have enough wire not included for the keyed accessory wire on the RGB control module to run to the front lighter. It’s the pink wire going into the 12v keyed power port/lighter in the dash. I would also suggest a lot of the red marine heatshrink soldering connectors, a wire stripper, and some other tools for your install.
Awesome unit though, thank you guys.
This as has to be the best sub I’ve heard I have it in a 21 Silverado along with the 4 of the zxi 8 subs and damn do those things hit with the 12 way better than skar I would highly recommend these zxi subs..
The unit sounds great when it works. I have two issues with it. Occasionally I have to repair the unit to my phone because it will not connect. I have to reset it by unhooking the 12v power line to it. Once I do that it will reconnect. The second is the only way to control volume is through the unit. You cannot adjust the volume through your phone or connected device. If these two issues would be fixed this would be a fantastic unit.
Picked one up from a local shop & I’m glad I did. I’ve never owned or heard anything by DS18 but have seen the brand everywhere. I can see why they sell so many products. I have just one sub in a sealed truck enclosure in my single cab F-150 and boy does it sound great & powered by a Kicker CXA800.1. I highly recommend!
Awsome speaker grills , it was exactly what I was looking for
Killer looking tag!!! Jeep looks better now!!
Great wearing hat and looks great!!!
Great looking frame!!!
I am very happy with the NXL 6.5s. I have seen people running DS18 speakers and thought I would give them a try because they cost way less than the other options. I’m giving them 100wrms and they handle it with no problems and sound very clean and clear! I will be buying more soon.
Had one of their speakers in my Polaris Rzr when I purchased it. Started having trouble with the controller and contacted the customer service since I didn’t see just the controller in the online store. Aaron reached back out to me the next day to say they had it in stock and with the cost all set up ready for purchase. I payed for it and had within a week. Great experience and would buy from them again. Not sure how old my amplified speaker is but has held up great also and sound quality is good also, even while running the dunes at 60mph.
Loud and clear with no amp and extremely loud and clear with amp and equalizer
5 star took away all the static made The you can have some meds and has real crispy and made the base lower I love it
The subs looked even more amazing in person than in pictures. The shipping was quick. I will do future purchases with this company.
Been running this amp on 2 6.5 subs run at 1ohm, which take 400watts rms. The amp drives them at full efficiency with no problem. Amp stays cool and the clip light makes it easy to set gains. I actually have to turn the amp gain done a bit as it drives them a bit too hard. I switched out and put my DS18 10’ sub on it which is in a tuned box to 40hz ran at 2ohms and wow that sub moves now.
I bought a couple of these because my powered sub was drowning out my 6x9's and my 5.25 door speakers. They did not disappoint, brought enough midrange and mid-bass to balance the sound.
I do think however, that I can get more from them. My current amp is sending about 110W RMS, and I'm using the high pass filter. I probably should call DS18 and ask for some advice. Maybe I just need more power, or set the crossover differently, or maybe my hearing is going bad, idk. But they do sound fantastic, and my sub no longer overpowers the mids and highs.
