lookin to put a 18" DC audio XL or level 4 with XL soft parts in a half side walled box. anyway, would dubstep/dance sound ok on it? it wouldnt hafta sound like a 10 but i dont want super crappy sound. while im postin, is a XL or a level 4 with XL soft parts better? thanks

 
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.

 
aight thanks, last thing is would a little over half the ext cab area walled be enough for the 18? and for the 18 XL, whats a good amp for a reasonable price?

 
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.
