Just got a used 18sound 18LW2500 to play a bit with. 
Thinking about what to put it in.

Cant test it in the Gsubs, Only got one driver.
And dont think it will fit inside my EV MTL2 (and still missing one driver) or T18.

But wouldnt it be more fun to make something for it?
Maybe a mini scoop of some sort?

Ideas are welcome Smile

Using the 18LW2500 in a T18 or similar cab would be a waste. Build something with more extension, maybe a TH or something.

Cab dims are (mm) 1480h x 560w x 840d. Or can do singles as 740h. This is dual loaded in half space 2pi :) Looks like a good alternative driver to the 9601 or B&C 18sw115.

Yes i will build something for it. Just for fun :)
I think mini scoop could be fun to try. Never build or heard a serious scoop. Only some oooold Fane 15" LOL

RCF ESW1018
Mykey Mini
MS18 mk2
Hugo Mini
HBL Mini
Bull X Mini.

Plenty of options :)

A 290 g Mms isn't exactly a light 18", it's actually quite heavy. Xmax 15 mm, BL 30 TM, etc.

It does have a small Vas for an 18", medium Qes, so a front loaded horn with a small chamber tuned near 30 Hz would do (could be a ported horn).

Admittedly you make it seem easy. I could probably do that with most of my drivers though, except some of the cheaper but plastic cones.
