Product Details

PRV Audio 18SW2000 18" High Power Pro Audio Subwoofer 8 Ohm

The 18SW2000 18" subwoofer was the first high-power driver designed and built by PRV Audio, and continues to be their best selling, most popular subwoofer today. One look at this driver and you'll see why!

PRV Audio designed the 18SW2000 to play louder, and lower, than most every other speaker manufacturer's subwoofer in its price range. A thoroughly vented, well executed motor with an inside-outside 4" voice coil is utilized to minimize output-robbing power compression, while also increasing driver longevity and power handling. The use of a dual spider suspension, mated to a cotton M-Roll surround and attached with a special resin, allows for extreme linearity during intense use.

A reinforced cast aluminum frame increases rigidity and resists frame flex. Spring-loaded speaker terminals allow for easy speaker wire connection. This popular professional audio subwoofer is at home in bandpass or ported (bass reflex) speaker cabinets and has been used in live sound reinforcement, high SPL mobile audio systems, and as high output home theater systems.
