Hi Guys,,, probably a question for Pasi...
 
Im currently using a pair of BR12 tops and TRS118 subs.
 
Just thinking now about getting either TRS218's or BR218's. Or another pair of TRS118's
 
Can anyone explain the differences between the TRS218 and BR218 ?
 
I noticed on the specs the TRS goes a bit lower.
 
Im a DJ, and I like bass my be deep and "pleasant" rather than hard hitting.
 
I'm interested in a nice big deep sound, rather than max spl,,,
 
 
Also, just been in touch with someone who has some used TRS218s and BR218s to sell, but so far he hasnt given me a price ?
 
If anyone on here has any for sale, let me know.
 
Thanks, Jeff.

I have used the trs218 and really liked them as they have a nice warm sound
With lots of punch, I haven't herd the BR218, but as it looks like
A standard folded horn I woudent expect it to sound quite as deep
As a TRS218 , if I were you I would keep single cabs as they
Are easyer to transport and more flexible
you will notice quite a
Big increase in spl if you add another pair of trs118s and they will
Also play lower .

He might be talking about an older model BR218 that looks like a bandpass to me?

The old BR218 were bandpass and I think, so were the BR218S.

If I was you, I'd get TRS. To my ears they are a nicer sounding cabinet. It also means you could push the boat out and get one of Ohm's best kept secrets to really enhance your bass.

Hi mate,

I have 8 X TRS 218 and i love them, but as you say you are looking for deep bass rather than hard hitting I would say that the BRs would suit you more. i would say this with either the older bandpass or the newer "horn loaded" style (if thats what they are i think).

I used to have a few pairs of the older 600w (that actually have 2 x 400w drivers as do the mk 1 trs). These have a really fat sound but is lazier than a TRS. I found to get the best out of them they need a big amp behind them unlike the TRS that is a very efficient cab!

The later BR218S came with the newer cast 500w drivers and sound even better and now they are the BR218B which is the "hornloaded" cab, again goes low but I dont think it hits as hard as a TRS.

You need to know that the older BR cabs are MDF so are very heavy tho!!

Good luck mate. Either way they are both cracking cabs!

Bandpass horn is the key words here regarding BR-218B.

From those 2, i would go for TRS-218 and adjust the xover point and shape accordingly to reduce the punch and get softer, deeper sound out of it.
