    Re: Cheaper Lower powered 18s?

    My oa 12s took 1200ish each no sweat. I think my fosgate was rated for 1265 @4 on the birthsheet, which I used as my baseline for torcher testing.. I wouldn't hesitate to put 1200-1500 clean on the 18s they are built to take a little more punishment. I think the v3s come out soon as well.

    I've heard the oa 18's in like 3.8 cubes. Lacking low end, still played pretty good.

    ok, but see for my daily listening the lowest i listen to is like 35hz or 36hz, IF that. i like mine to be strong down to like 38hz,so as long as its pretty strong around 40hz im happy. i know thats weird compared to most people but i guess thats just my taste in music.

    You'll be happy then. Do like 4.5 @ 35 hz or something.

    I was trying to get it as close to 4.5 cubes as possible. Would a 10" aero work with these subs?

    Yes. You could even do a 8" here, or 2 6's.

    Im just curious, is it the AQ softparts that make want so much or what?

    Also what would be ideal/best for the 2 OA 18s port wise, 1 8" - 2 6s or 1 10"? its a daily build, but i will hit the occasional comp and the comps are on music average.
