This is what I figured initially, after comparing both drivers, but we also have to take the larger cone into account. The 18H+ is a rather special breed. It's not exactly comparable to contemporary Pro 18" subwoofers, which are designed to go very loud in relatively small cabs. In order to play <40Hz these drivers need excessive Xmax as well as lots of amp. power. The 18H+' high VAS compensates for the lack of Xmax. The added bonus is higher sensitivity.

Besides, I've found that cone size does matter in the perceived quality of (sub)bass.
By far the best bass I've heard and felt over the last 3 weeks was reproduced by a Funktion One stacked (4x) F221 horn.
