Danley TH118XL Anyone?
« on: June 11, 2018, 06:07:32 pm »

Today on eBay there is a listing for two TH118s for sale by a user who doesn't need them because they don't stack up nicely with their TH118XL cabinets!  The listing includes a picture of the two subs stacked together.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/123182482042?ul_noapp=true

There is a page up on Danley's website for the new sub, but you have to search for it as they are not showing it in the list of tapped horn models yet.  Personally, I am hoping there is a stampede of TH118 users upgrading to the XL, who flood the market with used TH118s, thereby making them affordable for weekend warriors like me :)

The Th118XL is basically the same as the TH118, except for the large size cabinet, which means a longer horn, which means it goes lower than the standard TH118.

It is heavier, due to more wood.  The drivers are the same.

I like that the skids align with the SH96.  It's a very clean look.

Aesthetically, a 45" tall subwoofer ground stacked with a 45" wide top cabinet like the SH96HO certainly looks nicer.  The extra low end extension might help those doing EDM but I doubt it will lead to a sudden market flood on used TH118's, but I can't fault your optimism!

Because the skids are interlocking (a male and female on each track on each side of the cabinet), they only interlock in one position.

So if you put the Sh96 on the stack and the skids don't line up, simply flip the SH96 over and they will align.  It will be the same pattern either way.

Or you could do it the hard way and flip all the subs-----

<Humor mode = on>

Ivan, I think your sales guys need to look up "infamous" in the dictionary:

"The TH118XL, a variation of the infamous TH118, is a subwoofer that is useful for both indoor and outdoor applications."

I would hardly call the TH118 infamous.  :)

Don't that mean "In Famous?"

haha sounds like a make-work project! 


I suppose that means the SM80F would also fit on top nicely sideways with the interlocking skids and 45" height (width in this case) or could make a good stack with some DBH218's. 


Who's idea was it to make the TH118 only 40" in the first place?  Did anything fit on it from the Danley full range box inventory or was it just for interlocking multiple tapped-horns?

To be honest, I am not sure about the spacing of the skids on the SM80F interlocking.  I will have to look into it.

The "tail end" of the story about the height of the TH118 is as follows.

Tom had been working on several cabinets (during the beginning of Danley).
 None of them were doing what I wanted.  Either in performance or portability etc, but did perform well in other areas.

He told me "Tell me what you want-specifically in performance and size".

I liked the idea of tilt back cabinets, and 40.5" was what I felt would be easy to move around, with the weight centered at the bottom, not going so low, but having more punch etc.

He came up with what he called "Ivan's sub".  That is the TH115.  Later we modified it a little bit and the TH118 was born.

I still feel that the regular TH118 is easier to move around than the XL version or the SH96HO.  The SH96HO is the width it is to be truck pack.  2 Th118s are truck pack.

But if you put the XL on a cart and stack them, then tilting them back is not an issue.
