Thats a shame :-D
Hope you like them after you test them. I found these to be superb compared to previous B&C versions.
The bad side is that now they spoiled me with 21DS115. The speaker looks like "business." Or rather GORE. ;-D
Two 18SW115 are stronger still, so be careful of yourself at home. We dont want to loose you.

Nikon and Canon people should not be married to each other. Why did you let this happen?

First results with the recommended enclosure from the b&c website was disapointing. 
Not much SPL and overal not good sound reproduction.

Next weekend I will also build a TH-18 tot do some testing.

That´s weird. It should do a lot. Of course, not very sensitive driver, but goes deep easily. Also modern high-Bl drivers with higher impedance need higher voltages and equalization to drive these at rated powers. Conventional usage is not a way to go for best outcome with these.

B&C SUB 18 needs heavy bracing inside to stop panels from resonating! This is really important especialy with this monster driver!

ive A&B the 2 differant cabs ,the b&c sub & this mini scoop,..ok the sub was a lot smaller but also a 3rd of the output of the scoop,. to me that speaker was a waste in that b&c sub,.probably good for the smaller b&c's but not the sw,.try & get your hands on a mini scoop,i suppose the tapped horn would work aswell but as marko said,, what ever cab you go for you need some real solid bracing,.Thumbs Up

And whatever your findings may be, if you want to test them in some huge(1x1x0.6m) tapped horns to see what they can do, i am still curious how these drivers would perform in my Tapped horns. Where are you from?
Best regards,
Teun.

Those mini scoops look rather big still, how many liters is that one, 400?

I've built a pair of keystones with these drivers that I use atm, monster output very clean sounding, solid nice kick 100-110 hz.

Could bark a bit more tho to my taste for techno but I guess it's due to the low distortion.. sounds different compared to my flh's which has a nice compression bark up close and more 'snappy' sound but not even close in output at a little less than double the liters(I have four t30 3012lf loaded, eight would probably be somewhat equivalent with two keystones)

The used design was the S18CN from the B&C site, and was build with the recommended bracing. 

The TH-18 is preferred with it's dimensions.

Th-18 it is! The output was very nice, and deep enough.
They will have a full grill, and two m20 plates for a top cabinet (what will be the next project).

The panels for the cabinet will be done by a professional company.
Paint and overal finish will be done by myself.
