For professional use, the 18R2 creates new opportunities for small to mid-sized display companies by allowing them to easily, reliably, and affordably shoot pyromusicals with minimal operator training. The 18R2 is our most popular remote with thousands of units in the field being used daily by individuals and professionals worldwide.

The 18R2 boasts all the same features as the COBRA 18R plus a handful of added features including:

  • Firing Memory - The remote tells you which cues have been fired and have not been fired on every channel. Unfired cues display as green, fired cues as red, the last cue fired will blink red.
  • Rapid Manual Fire - Fire cues as fast as your fingers can press including multiple at the same time!
  • Scripted Firing - The 18R2 adds support for automated shows. Simply press a button and sit back to watch your show fire automatically. Design automated shows using Microsoft Excel, COBRA Show Creator, or Finale Fireworks. Shows can be simple backyard shows, or world class award wining pyromusicals.
  • Audio Box Integration - Play your audio in perfect sync with the COBRA Audio Box, a stand-alone wireless audio player you can connect directly into a sound system.

Designed with User Simplicity in mind - While the 18R2 has more features, none of the advanced features get in the way of basic operation. You can learn the unit in minutes, and take advantage of our world class support.
