You dont really have the space for 2 18's w/ interchanable ports.

You have ~12.3cu gross to work w/. (estimating singled walled box)

I would do 2 15's.

oh ok so 2 15's it is ... thanks... would I have room for 2 18's if i just used aero ports and pluged one to go lower

depends on the 18. with 12 cubes gross you could be looking at 10 net. 9 at the lowest. there are some 18s that work well in 4.5 to 5 cubes each. Meade has BTL 18s in around 5 cubes each. it is likely that a pair of strong 15s will get louder than 18s in an enclosure that is too small.
