Default cheap cone area vs. big power big subs

alright, everyday performance... awesomeness...cost...

ass load of cheap 8's? or...
4 18's.

lets consider cost of this as well.

36 8's = 4000 wrms total cone area somewhere around 1800 in squared
4 18's = 8000 wrms total cone area somewhere around 1017 in squared

which is louder?

Soooo many variables, but assuming you put the 8k on the 18's, the 18's will own the 8's. What "cheap" 8's are you thinking of?

But, the 8's will own the 18's in awesomeness.

36 8s on 8k ftw!....but really, the 18s will PROBABLY be louder...ur only givin the 8s 111w and if there cheap 8s, i highly doubt the efficiency isnt gonna be too high, nor are they gonna be able to get very loud on low power...now, if it were an sa8, dd1508, or a dc8, id change my mind and say the 8s would probably be louder, even the efficiency blows on them

pyle blue wave 8's, at around 20 bucks a pop, theyre about all I could afford if we're talking that many of them. The variables are endless though, youre right about that. xmax on those is like, nonexsistant, RMS is low, and i've head they've got super stiff suspension? It was just an idea, I'm trying to be ridiculous on a budget, HA.
