    1 8" > 2 6's. Single port is more efficient both acoustically and space-wise. To achieve the same tuning with 2 6's you would need the 2 6's to be longer by a couple inches. Plus you can just pick up an 8" sono tube from lowes/hd for like $5. And for an 18 I would use a 10" port.

    8" port = ~50 in^2 of port area. 10" port = ~79 in^2 of port area. A 10" port is about the max I would use for an 18 if you wanted to do a daily setup that wasn't too peaky. If it was a slot port I wouldn't go over around 90-100 in^2 of port. An 8" port should be very musical though it might not have the loudness you're looking for, in which case you could bump it up to the 10".

    Re: 8in vs 2-6in aeroport for 18

    Personally I would keep the dual 6" setup, if you have access to a cheap way to try out a single 8" port then go for it, but you will likely have a drop off in "SPL" in most cases but not all.

    However, a single 10" wold be a nice setup and would be very fun to play around with if done properly.

    The real issue with flared round ports and output is that there are many different views on it. I don't know to many people that actually agree. Most result to testing and then just use what works best your particular application.
