Product Details

PRV Audio 18SW3000 18" High Power Pro Audio Subwoofer 8 Ohm

The 18SW3000 is the most powerful loudspeaker in the SW series woofer from PRV Audio and finds itself at home in either bandpass or bass reflex systems. Dual spiders and an M-Roll surround combine to offer precise cone movement along its impressive 16 mm of stroke. 

A class-leading 5" diameter voice coil is mounted onto a fiberglass former to provide the foundation that allows for 1,500 watts of RMS power handling (3,000 watts program power) and is kept cool through the unique, built-in FACT (Forced Air Cooling Technology) system that draws air from above and below the gap for a complete cooling cycle that works with the subwoofer's natural movement. 

Insane 1,500 watt RMS power handling, high 96 dB sensitivity, and reasonably small enclosure requirements make PRV Audio's 18SW3000 a true, high-end powerhouse subwoofer. Perfect for shaking a venue, high SPL car audio, or for the ultimate home theater subwoofer!
