they look the business-

but i was really after something alittle bit more versatile-and compact as i will be using them alot and they just look too damn bulky!!-if im going up a flight of stairs-im buggered-

i do alot of shows for around 600-1000 people in banqueting suites and big halls. so need the power of twin loaded cabs but they gota be compact and easy to move-such as the ev's and cerwin's (1 man job) , if any1 can get hold of the planz for the ev Mtl's or cerwin Sub218-thatz would be very much appreciated!!

Why not use 2 1850 horns a side[ easier to carry up stairs] and don't forget each 1850 horn uses 1x 18 inch.

As dual 18 inch horn subs are very large and extremely heavy.

Or if you still want to build dual 18 inch horn sub, heres the plans:[it won't be able to go up flights of stairs though].

 

http://mitglied.lycos.de/crusher844/

Find Plaene and click it on there, and it's the 2x 18" DB-B2.

 

Dat is the B2. Fundamental bass. This is not Konstruirter plan like many different, but a 1:1 to the Orginal. The B2 is built and driven out by the company D&b. It is a band-pass filter 6er order (no BP/HORN) the front expanding haven serves only for the pressure adjustment to air. The depth of the loudspeaker is with seitenbrettern 58cm. each interior chamber has approx. 125L. The 3te chamber in the center itself the two 18"er parts has 100L. Alternatiev can be equipped the B2 also with B&C PZB 46. But the rear haven must be 25,5cm long in each case. The RCF L18P300 gets along something similar well with the tuning. The efficiency is constant 102dB 1w1m, the B2 comes however clearly deep and pressure-full as the Mutator. For the enormous pressure the Relatiev large one radiating surface is responsible. The middle haven both chassis divide is approximately 41,5cm long and is forward extended

nah not too keen on that design mate, i had 2x 1850 earlier this year i put a fane 18xb driver in there and --woo hoo i saw sum fireworks

so im not too keen on them, as they killed my beloved fane 18xb's  or was it the crown 3600vz at full whack for 5 hours 

im still looking for that double 18'' design, i like the ''pimp'' styling of the ev and cerwins u just see the big f**k off baskets and magnets! and the whole cab is same size as a scoop, but housing 2 18''s

@Insomnia

listen man those selenium double 18s that NEXUS-3 mentioned are awesome there aint nothing like them

ive never heard a better double 18 in my life, i must highly recomend them they do a lot of damage and the bass is 10 out of 10!           trouser flappers at 30 yards

i was over a mile away on a beach when some guy was using 8 double 18s not only could i feel the bass in my chest i could feel it in the floor

The other thing is, I'm sure you can split that Selenium cab up into two units - one driver in each - to make transportation alot easier. Stacking two together should give alomst identical output.

Especially if they're true horns designed to do 50hz or lower and not a bandpass hybrid.

Then you shoulda put the right driver in it or used the 186 box instead, thats user error, not the box's fault.

Also the boxes you're talking about (if i'm thinking of the right ones) are not truly horns but micro-scoops or bandpass/manifold hybrids

yes,

the cabs im after are some sort of micro-scoops,  

ive used the Ev Mtl's before - they are effecient enough throughout the hole spectrum but just lack any major power as they are rated at around 800-per cab,

I may try the selenium design after ding some research into it.
