Eminence Sigma Pro-18A-2 18" Cast Frame Driver
I have 2 of the EV ELX118 subs and I am thinking of replacing them with high output drivers (above 500 RMS!). I am wondering if the the Sigma Pro-18A-2 18", would be ideal replacement? other alternatives? Please help. Thanks
The Sigma is an incredible driver for the price and will work very well in that EV cab, although I cannot say what specific differences you will here.

Would these be a good upgrade to Peavey PV118 cabs? If so, would a QSC PLX2402 bridged providing 2400W into 4 ohms (two of these in parallel) be a good idea?
These will work very well as replacements for those cabinets. 2400 watts will certainly be overkill for a pair but there is nothing wrong with having the headroom. Keep an eye on woofer excursion and I would recommend a HPF set at 35-40 Hz.

Would these drivers be a good replacement for EV Eliminator Subs? Also, the EVs were 400 watts. If I'm using the same amount of watts(2400@4ohms mono split to 2 subs), what kind of audible differences would the 650 watts of the Sigma Pro-18A-2 provide?
Yes these will work well in those cabinets. The additional power will barely be beneficial in the long run and might gain you an additional 1-2 dB in overall output at higher volume levels.

I have a couple sigma pro 18a 2 speakers but need to know the specs to build my speaker box
I would recommend a box with external dimensions of 22"H x 28"W x 18"D using 3/4" material. A single 6" diameter port that is 9" long will tune the box to 34 Hz.

Would this perform well in a 1x18 W-Bin design? Some other driver maybe?
This will work OK but you would be farther ahead with the Omega Pro 18 from Eminence for this application. It has a bit more power handling and a stronger cone for horns or scoops.

would these be an acceptable driver in a DIY t18 box? any power limitations? also considering Peavey Low rider 18
The Eminence would be better suited for that application, unfortunately we have no way of modeling that type of enclosure. I would recommend a high pass filter set at about 40 Hz.
