VHD Subwoofer Enclosure

The VHD2.16 double 15" subwoofer is a development of KV2 Audio’s ES 2.5 design that has become a standard for compact, high-output subwoofer devices. Acoustical design is based on extreme loading of asymmetrical chambers delivering exceptional output and control. The cabinet is built to the same robust standards as the VHD4.18 and delivers output in excess of 140dB when configured in a pair. It also functions as a very effective upper bass cabinet when used alongside the ultra-low frequency VHD1.21 or 2.21 subwoofers as part of a five-way active system.


  • Professional, Baltic birch construction with a highly resistant polymer coating

  • Four full-length pieces of fly-track (two per side) and one five-point pull back piece on the rear of the cabinet

  • Very High Definition low, frequency reproduction

  • 143dB sustained output / 146dB peak (using 4 units of VHD 2.16)

  • High acoustic loading via twin asymmetrical chambers

  • Two 15" low-frequency drivers with 4" (100 mm) inside/outside, epoxy baked, high-temperature voice coil assembly, and neodymium magnetic structures

  • Proprietary side handles (6) for simplified handling and carrying

  • High impact low friction feet, allowing lock- into other VHD cabinets and easy cabinet movement

  • Front locking aluminum VHD wheel boards with wraparound hardwood bumpers

  • Weather proofing option and special paint finishes available on request


Specifically designed to accompany the VHD2.0 and VHD1.0 as a true full range high output system for live performance and music
