I appreciate the insight but if I order more crap my wife will kill me so these 18s we gotta figure out haha.
The DIY Groups Mag 12 is 93dB sensitivity 12" with 9mm of Xmax, the PA460 is 97 dB sensitivity 18" with 6mm of Xmax.
I included a WINISD comparing the two. You would have to use twice as many Mag 12s($160) to beat the PA460($100) and also the Mag 12s would need2x as much power(Inuke 6000 $325) so it would end up costing you much more to go with Mag12s.
