I'm looking to put two of these drivers in a ported cabinet tuned to 30 hertz and I'm having trouble choosing the right compression driver and matching it to the correct horn. Thank you.

I'm replacing 2 Tapco 6918s woofers. I have a Mackie M2000 amp, which puts 800 continuous watts to each woofer. Most manufacturers recommend exceeding the RMS rating, not going lower. Is that true here, or would the Eminence Sigma Pro-18A-2 be better?

Asked by: jdecker
Having more power available than the woofers can handle is never a bad thing. Either woofer option will work well with the power that is available, you want to use whichever will work best in the cabinet you have.

I want to use this woofer from 30hz to 250hz for an audiophile setup. A 12inch midbass and 1in.comp driver from 250hz up.  Whats the best enclosure size and tuning for this 18? Also what would power handling be in it?

Asked by: theone
I would recommend 5.5 cubic feet total with a single 6" diameter, 11" long port for a tuning frequency of 30 Hz. This will be able to handle 400 watts of power before excursion becomes a problem and the cone unloads at about 26 Hz.
