That model is susceptible to bottoming because it is tuned very deep and has a very large enclosure volume.

A high pass filter below tuning will help control the woofer after it unloads from the ports. But it will not help with excessive cone excursion above tuning (which will be highest in the 22-35 Hz band). The only way to avoid that is to simply avoid driving the subwoofer to the point of woofer bottoming.

would a driver with more power handling help with the bottoming?
Unlikely. Power handling is generally more about the thermal limits of the VC rather than the mechanical limits of the suspension. Our 12.5 driver has revised motor and VC geometry such that the VC cannot strike the back plate. A driver like that would probably help.

The 12.5 is the currently shipping Plus driver. It uses the same basket as the 12.3, but has a significantly upgraded motor and soft parts.
