Eminence IMPERO 18C 18" High Power Driver Speaker 4 Ohm 1200W
The description references a weather resistant cone/dustcap and a treated surround. Are these drivers truly weather resistant and fit for sheltered, outdoor use?
Weather resistant is a tricky phrase. There are specific drivers designed for built-in sheltered applications - such as the subs at the volcano at the Mirage in Vegas. This intention of this driver is to be in a sound reinforcement cabinet and will do well with the elements, sheltered. I would not leave it out permanently. While the cone and dust cap are treated, due to the cabinet design, the internal components have no protection to humidity or condensation.

what is the optimum enclosure size for use with bass guitar ?
This woofer will work very well in 5.6 cubic feet with a 6" diameter, 10" long port. This will provide a tuning frequency of 32 Hz which will work well for both 4 and 5 string bass guitars.Rough external dimensions for a box this size would be 18"x18"x37", port placement does not matter.

Will this work really good with the subwoofer Knock Down PA cabinet you sell?...item #245-328 I dont understand all of the driver specs to build my own cabinet.
You should search for a "box calculator" - it allows you to plug in the specs. It will then give you the volume, port diameter and length - along with tuning frequencuy and -3d down point (the F3). This is an expensive driver - and as a DIYer, you should do some homework on a project of this cost. While the knock down cabinet 245-328 is decent. I think you will find that it is way too small - and not the right solution. I'd build a custom cabinet to match the driver. You can read a lot of articles on materials, bracing, sealing air spaces etc... it's not too hard - you just need to take it one step at a time. PE even sells the ports you need.. Good luck and have fun.
