I think you're right, take a look at the surround on the 18" driver for the Triax-18. It doesn't look all the big so I'm guessing give up a little excursion to save some weight and use a 18" for surface area.

Ray, do you think they will still get that slam factor with the 18"s that the 15"s give with the heavier driver? The 15s were at least 45+ pounds a piece, I remember

I would think so, with the bigger surface area the 18's wouldn't have to work as hard.

I'll have to come over and check them out when you get them

Hey Jeffery could you at least get the subs setup and run REW this time around?

Also Tom mentioned the difference is subtle...

I would not be surprised if Tom is "downplaying" the "subtle" difference.
