    AQ's move a lot of air, it just has to do with the overall woofer design. Ugh, it'd be hard to break it down.

    For 2 OA 18's, 4 6" ports, 2 8" ports. You would want more than a single 10", but two 10"s would probably have to be way too long.

    Re: Cheaper Lower powered 18s?

    I was between OA 18s and DCs. I ended up doing 2 DC lvl 3 18s on a 2200. Mine are in 12 cubes net with a 12" aero. But I'm sure they would do great in a smaller enclosure.

    Don't SA Zs like small boxes?
