Nightshade coil and cone is a popular option, extra spider if you need more mechanical strength.

But really the sub is almost perfect out of the box imho. One of the few that has stood the test of time

Not sure about the 12" but I ran full NSv2 recones in my 18" Zv3's and they handles 5k clamped each on a daily basis. I had surround and spider failures but that was due to me playing 10hz below tuning full tilt

You have one or two? Or how many...

If you only have one, you probably won't get much more out of it. If you have two, you could get a bigger amp that you can wire lower and you will definitely see a difference. So long as your electrical can support it

You can wire lower, and just keep an eye on the voltage. If you're struggling to keep up, just turn the gain down some. Worst case scenario you end up about the same as you were before.

I also have a pair of the zv3's with NSv.2 spider and cone - currently only have one hooked up but aiming to have both running on 5K rms next year

And get the recones in the ohm of your liking when you order them so you can wire them as you wish
