B&C 18sw115. ($582)
B&C 18SW115-8 18" Neodymium Subwoofer Speaker Driver 294-575
18 sound 18 nlw9600 ($700)
Eighteen Sound Speakers - Eighteen Sound 18NLW9600 - Eighteen Sound 18NLW9600 18" woofer handles 1,800 watts AES. Eighteen Sound 18NLW9600 18" subwoofers are available here. 18 Sound speaker components.
TC sounds 5100 ($880)
TC Sounds Pro 5100 18" Neo Subwoofer Driver 293-674

The B&C appears to be a bargain next to the others.

For very high output horn with a large driver, make sure the motor is very strong and the cone equally as strong.

Im liking the idea of this!
Eighteen Sound Speakers - Eighteen Sound 18NLW9600 - Eighteen Sound 18NLW9600 18" woofer handles 1,800 watts AES. Eighteen Sound 18NLW9600 18" subwoofers are available here. 18 Sound speaker components.

10,000 watts peak ? so i could drive that pretty hard without the need for killing anything? !!

Im not to sure on this though... TC Sounds Pro 5100 18" Neo Subwoofer Driver 293-674

I can see there being issues with space in a folded horn!

If this is true, how are you going to design the folded horn?
