you would need 2 6 inch aero's per 18.....or 2 10 inch custom aero's...or a slot port...the aero's will be more effiecent and prolly get louder but the price tends to offset that...6 inch aeros start at 36 bucks each at parts express

I paid $12 plus shipping for the 8" aeros I just built. 10" flares can't be more than $8 a piece since the 8" is only $5. Sonotube is probably $10.

I'm using a single 8" for my 18. It's not ideal but its louder than my slot port was and that's all that mattered to me

Go to Main, call them and tell them you want the mini bellmouth flares in whatever size you want, go to homedepot and buy the same size sonotube, and slap em together

Any benefit to using the "mini" over standard and short radius?

difference looks to be how sharp the radius of the mouth is and the outer plat flares lip

mini is 3/4 radius, the standard is 1"
