JBL Srx918Sub and RCF 8004 sub
« on: June 04, 2023, 01:12:09 PM »

Hi All,

allAny of you have compared these two subs in a live setting ?

MAP price difference is around $1300

Is the RCF a far better choice ?

Thanks all for you expertise.

I haven't heard the SRX918s nor the RCF 8004.... But, what mains are you running?


Possible bonus point are on the RCF's is that they have a Crossover Out if your tops don't have a low cut.

Love that both are linkable power (should be a must on all powered speakers)

Thanks for your reaction.

I use varios tops : EV ETX-35P, DBtechnologies IG4T, Yamaha DSR112 and I just bought the RCF NX-985.

Powered subs I have; the old HPR-181 by QSC and Sub 18H from DB technologies

I want a nice powerfull sub, that goes deep, notvto expensive and not to heavy.

I use a single RCF 8004-AS sub with a pair of RCF NX-45A tops.  The 8004 does an excellent job.  The combination of the 8004 with the NX45A cabinets is impressive.  The 8004 is far better than the JBL PRX815XLF I used to have.  I know the 815XLF is not the same as the SRX918, but thought I would share my thoughts on the 8004.

The 8004 is an impressive sub.  Db-Technologies which used to be owned by RCF made/makes a sub that I think is just a rebadge.  I have heard the dual 18 version and it was very impressive and much less money.


Mike Pyle probably knows this off the top of his head.

Renard, Deep, not expensive, not heavy. Pick any 2, but you cannot have all 3.  8)

Ya, Whatever. Just throw a '57 on it, and get off my stage.

You are right about that formula Chris !

i see all lot of nice reviews about the Yamaha DXS18XLF. The Yamaha is half the price of the 8004.  Now showing up with 4 Yamaha against two 8004, which setup would you choose ?

Rcf 8004 is an old loudspeaker. Yamaha dxs 18 xlf modern design. the winner is the Yamaha which is more powerful and has a lot of options to set up. The only Yamaha XLF subbass - which is great. the remaining yamaha dzr speakers are a disaster.

I have run the XLF's with 12" DZR's and they are impressive.  If you can get 4 for the price of two 8004 I would go that way.


Why are the DZR's a disaster?  They are a helluva speaker.  If I didn't have DSR's I would be adding a pair or two to inventory.

Ive not heard the 918 but the 8004 stomps on the 818.
