The horn woudl need to be made out of like, iron reinforced foot thick concrete......but boy would it be DAMN loud....if you could somehow fit itonto the back of an 18wheeler...firing into the cabin.....and they say 180db is next to impossable.

It is next to impossible.

If that thing can create those sorts of figures you could de-feather a chicken while listening to it.

There were no specs given on that sub except excursion and cone area. power handling/efficiency(electrical and mechanical) are much more important. Next comes thier vehicle's rigidity....

180db is easy for say... a space shuttle

I think they are talking about within an enclosed space. Much easier than in free air.

Why would 180 db be impossible?

Surely enough displacement and power should be able to do it.

Lets say we want to do it with some stacks of horns.
1w >>> 105db
10w > 115db
100w > 125
1000w > 135

Double the drivers and amps > 141db
4x 147
8x 153
16x 159
32x 165
64x 171
128x 177

Ok of course this is crazy. But is there any reason why this could not be done with excessive power and a huge stack? I have no allowed for power compression, but with the larger stack they will handle more power and have more directivity.

I'm a little suspicious of this single subwoofer being able to equal the output of 128 massive bass horns, it does sound like a bit of a stretch don't you think?!

It does,

But consider that dB-drag is done with bursts that are much higher as the rms-powerrating, also in this short time powercompression isn't much of an issue.

With a stack of horns sensititvity raises with 3 dB/ doubling only within a 1/4 wavelength. A stack of 128 would be to big to achieve this.
