Product Details

PRV Audio 18SW2200-2+2 18" High Power Pro Audio DVC Subwoofer 2+2 Ohms

The 18SW2200-2+2 18" subwoofer is one of the best selling professional audio loudspeakers in the PRV Audio subwoofer series. Its low frequency response and accuracy surprises listeners, not expecting this much performance from a subwoofer at this price point.

PRV Audio built the 18" 18SW2200-2+2 to play louder (105 dB, 2.83V/1m) than nearly every subwoofer on the market, by using a thoroughly vented, well executed motor. A 4" inside-outside dual voice coil is employed 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 ribbed cone (all 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 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.

Note: Specifications are listed with voice coils wired in parallel.

Could you specify port dimensions for the above-mentioned ported enclosure of 4.25 ft^3?

i dont understand about this woofer,according the discription the performance is compare with 4 spk.the have two terminal of 2ohm,can we wire this individual with 2ohm power amp?and every 2 ohm terminal has a power rms of 1100 watt each thanks,,

Asked by: rb57
This has the sensitivity of 4 similar size standard impedance drivers with the coils wired to a 1 ohm load, it will not have the same overall output capability of four drivers. The total power handling of both coils is 1100 watts RMS. Yes you could run each channel of a 2 channel, 2 ohm stable amp into this woofer.
