Fair enough, but the OP PM'ed me asking for more details.
Besides, 21's and 24's are significantly more powerful than 18's on a 1 vs 1 ratio.
It really depends on the OP's budget and space available and goals.
2 UM-18's or 2 FI-18's are great, but 2 21's or 2 24's are SO much better.
The OP is in Europe so his ability to acquire North American drivers are rather limited, or at least very cost-prohibitive.
He may be "stuck" with Beyma's, or B&C's or China-woofers whatever it is that they sell over there...
If he is gonna spend $500 to ship a single woofer to his house, it might as well be a SI SHS-24 or an IPAL-21. Something actually worth the shipping fee, maybe a Russian DeafBonce-32
I can't tell if this video is about Russian hotties or dual 32's with human-sized 4th-order ports, or both, But: How much do they cost?
