Have never used, heard PD1850/2.

I know the V18-1000/B&C 18TBX1000 work excellently in standard  Scooper, and K20 could easily drive 3x per side, if on decent mains power source.


What makes of 18" drivers, do you have easy access to?

Can you get Oberton drivers?

Oberton 18XB1500 may well appreciate the tightness of your Super Scoopers.

I will look into this driver, as I’m not familiar with the brand.

Why would that rcf not work?
If you listen to Lev, the 18NLW9601 is the crappies 18 inch for a scoop. Which took him about 4-5 years to finally realize that it actually spanks almost everything out there in a right scoop.

The woofer works ok, I was asking if anyone using it in scoops or which design
Would be best suited for it.

And here endeth my input on this thread..

Not all of us play from 13amp soc’s so sometimes the info or advice shouldn’t be important.

I don't really understand the whole 13A thing. A 13A plug with 13A fuse on a sensibly loaded 32A ring would in all likelyhood give you more power on tap than a 16A ceeform

Might as well smash your head against a wall mate. Never mind that if you aren’t melting the plug, popping a fuse or tripping a breaker you have 26A to play with for peaks. Not that said K20 will rarely draw over that unless you’re loading the shit out of both channels and playing some waves at the impedance minima.
