Ill post them when i build them. My plans are to use the X1s with the scoops. Loaded with 1850s. What do you think!!!!!

 
 What scoop design did Errol give you for the scoops? ASS design? If so you won't need the X1's.

Nah one he made himself before he made his boxes. Same thing he told me, he said i have a choice. Use the scoops for small venues and when it gets larger, just add on the bandpass. The scoops alone will sound heavy though. Errols cousin has some and they sound heavy, punch you in your chest, even outdoors!

Thanks, Mike
 
SD18s sound great in the X1.  Never did any smaart measurements of the 3 different loaded cabs to give you any hard data, but the SD18 certainly models with a flatter response than either the void or the PD.
 
Can't give you any advice on power as I never ran them to the point they failed...  With the PD I'm confident to be able to push them hard...

Hi all,

cannot actually compare the drivers, but PD.186 produces a fine sound in the X1.
Even with a tiny 600 watts amp (limited and hi-passed of course).
And loud enough, too, thanx to the PDs high efficiency and +- 8mm Xmax.
