    2 Nice 18s or 4 Lower End 18s??

    Im starting my street beater project van. I have a Astro van I could possibly purchase for 350 and a Cadence ZRS-9 (2000watts @1ohm) to play with. Obviously im looking to be loud.

    I am aiming to be loud on the street, but at the same time hold a decent tl score. I will obviously be going ported but I may play around with a sealed box just for the hell of it. Anyhow for what I am aiming to do would it be better to go with to nice 18s such as RE SXs or 4 lower end 18s like kicker comp VRs

    Also note I will probably be tuning at a lower frequency because this van will be for street beating and not comps so around 28-34hz

    Thanks

    -Jp

    Personally, I would take the two SX's. Wall them off in the back of the van and beat away.

    Thats install dependant, but I would rather have two SX's, than four CompVR's... Whats the RMS on the VR's? With four, you would only give them 500w each. The SX's would sound much better with 1000w each IMO.

    I assumed so as well heh

    Maybe along the lines of 2 18 SXs or 4 15 SEs

    Its hard to decide since I have never owned a 18 but at the same time 4 15s would be appealing to see walled
