    Cone size has nothing to do with it. Have you been to a dubstep concert? You won't find any 10inch subwoofers I promise you. 18's all around in most cases. I'd go with the XL.

    I'd like to reinforce the notion that size doesn't make a difference in sound. It is the speaker's parameters you should be worried about.

    No idea. Get a tape measurer and let us know your external and it'd be much easier to figure that out.. DC subs don't want much airspace, but you'll still need plenty of port area.

    I listen to rap, metal and dubstep with my two 10's in a ported enclosure and ive been told my a respectable old school db drag guy it's somewhere in the 145db range with dubstep but that's just a guess.

    1 18 is quite a bit more cone area than 2 10's so you'll very likely be a few DB's louder with the 18, regardless of what your current 10's give you for output. The space you listed is more then enough for a wall a for a single 18.

    It will. But not cleanly the xl will want more power and that amp won't produce it It's kind of like buying a Cadillac and putting a Honda motor in it. If you get my meaning
