Why didn't we make the brace come all the way out to the front of the mouth? Wouldn't that have helped with the deformation of the front part of the bottom panel?

The B&C 18SW115 hits Xmax @100watts over its rated power. While the 18Sound 18LW2400 hit Xmax near 477 watts well under its rated power and 5dB less than the B&C driver all out. If it only cost me $30 more for the B&C and I've got power to spare isn't it a no-brainer or am I missing something?

I got two 2400's for 680 shipped... What are the two 115's? I thought they were around $900 for two of them?
I've never heard the 18 sounds....I just got them based on reviews I've read on here, and because they were affordable. Wait where did you get the 61 volt figure? I thought they were good to much more than that...

Nope, but for most people there is a 'little' bigger difference then 30$ between these drivers.

I ran Akabak sims with low and highpass filters to keep over excursion under control at low frequencies and those are the voltages I got to hit Xmax safely

hmm what filters did you use? (freq and slope?) because thats only 488 watts which doesn't seem like much at all....

Your predicted excursion will not be reached in reality with the same amount of power and music signals.

24dB Highpass @28Hz, 48dB Lowpass @ 115Hz. The Lowpass can be whatever you like of course. Here are the excursion plots for both

I understand that. But the B&C driver does have more potential output
