I have an unused pair of Faital 18HP1010s, and I would like to create a cabinet that has excellent output to combine with the 15" speakers + 1" 99dB efficiency drivers that I use with a 1000W power amp.
I currently have two tham 15mo with 15hp1030 and I'm very happy with the sound, but I would like a little more boost :)

I thought about tham 15, but in free parties I often see excellent paraflex projects. staying at those dimensions, what do you recommend?
the range should be good from 40 to 100hz, I also loaded the woofer in a tms4 bass but I find it much more suitable as a mid-bass.

Thank you <3

The 18HP1010s are nice reflex drivers, i dont think the cones are strong enough for compound loading though.  If you want more spl and you are happy with the sound of the tham 15s then probably your best option is to build more of them.  The 15hp1030 is a good driver for them, i used the 15hp1060 in a similar design and it was well suited.
