Thank you very much to both for replying! I have some more questions, hopefully you won't mind answering

This is not a "subwoofer" though. This is a woofer, intended for the bottom end of a speaker. It plays over 2000 hz. You can't really use this as a subwoofer. It rolls off hard at 100 hz. A subwoofer should be 0 to 80 hz. I'm pretty sure a 100 W 10" subwoofer would beat this.
I'm sure another european can chime in, but there are definitely way better (like 20 times better) subwoofers available in europe, and designing a box is easy, don't worry about that. If you find a good subwoofer available to you I can help design a box.
1. Thanks for the suggestions for the amplifiers. I checked the NU3000DSP and NU6000DSP manual and it appears that NU6000DSP does not support "bridged mono" mode so they can both provide 3000W max output, first amp over one channel and second over two. Since I am planning to use only one speaker I guess it would make no sense to buy the NU6000DSP ?
2. I don't understand why it is not good for a subwoofer though. Why does the manufacturer
call it a subwoofer then?
3. Also it does say it plays over 2000hz but then it also states "Max Recomm. Frequency 500 Hz". Here is the frequency response from the datasheet. Is this not so good for a subwoofer?

Also do you own the 2400 yet? The 2500 is roughly the same price and offers much more Xmax for the same money. I will be buying a pair of these in September when available.
If using this for HT not such a good idea. It can play low but not as good as a HT subwoofer.
4. It would be used mostly for music, yes. Is there a better 18" one for similar price I can get? Thanks for pointing me to the TH18 design, I have found some sketches and cut lists for TH18 for 18lw2400 but it looks very challenging to build as a first DIY project. Maybe I could build a simple cabinet first and then attempt the TH18 as the next step, I need to give some more thought to this idea
5. I do not own the 2400 yet, but I only have time during the summer vacations so I cannot wait until September if that is when the 2500 will be available? So I am looking for something that I can buy now...
6. Out of curiosity, what would be a good HT speaker for similar money?
Thanks in advance.
