Combining a Sundown ZV3 18 with the 18 4.2 cubic foot sealed test enclosure produced a system with a somewhat peaky response shape but capable of hefty levels of bass output. This is a rugged and power hungry combo needing a big amplifier to get everything out of it. A few of these as modules would provide plenty for most non industrial applications. The ZV3 driver will take an absurd amount of power and excursion without complaining and it would take an extremely powerful amplifier or prolonged high power to damage the driver in this type of sealed application. Due to the somewhat rolled off top end and distortion characteristics this driver is probably best used crossed over no higher than 100-120Hz at most.
