i'm chatting to someone who has had some 218's made... and then cut them in half to make single horn loaded 18's

pretty sure they are F1 F218 copies.

is this a viable thing to do? it would of course "work" but i wonder if there was any acoustic coupling going on at the mouth of the horn where the two meet...

It would be fine. After all, F118’s exist.

It's very similar just half as loud ;) Put them together and same thing. Apart from maybe some different losses via the enclosure stiffness / vibrations
