First off, Learn to use punctuation marks! That is the worst run on sentence I have ever read. My 2nd grader has better sentence structure than that!

Second, who is setting this system up for you? Or are you doing it in your garage? I suppose you are going to run 2 amps per 18 inch driver? Who is going to set that up for you? Is this for music or just one note? I hope you know what you're doing!

All I have to say is good luck! You're gonna need it!

if you like to cruise around and listen to music and have people hearing you 8 blocks away, that is defenatly not the way to do it. 18 inch woofers are a waist of time, go with 4 12s, go with Orion products, amps and subs, the HCCA stuff, www.orioncaraudio.com , cause if you think chics or people dig super ass loud, your wrong, loud is good, but there has to be SQ as well, or else people will just laugh. if you go with 4 12s, or mabe 2 10s, and 2 12's you will get madd ass bass, with 18inch woofers you can only play single notes on them, music does not go through 18, I feel personaly that 15 is too big. So with more smaller subs it may drop you spl a tad, not much just a tad, and you will haave some SQ avail so you can actualy cruise, (with ear plugs) this is just my opinion, and I just suggested Orion because I know they have a great product, Kicker is also good with the L7 square subs, hope this helps you to not waist your money on 18s.

first of all punctuation marks, why? this isnt english class thanks for the thought though but ill pass,
and i plan on having my slot ports interchangeable one for SPL burps and one tuned to my resident frequency so i willl have some SQ and for everyday usage the amps will be turned down and i dont need my car to pick up chicks as u so put it
this im just gonna do it because i can and not to make anyone else happy except me and OMG yes im goin to set all this up by my self cuz im not goin to pay somebody 35 bucks an hr to do it for me
and thanks for the L7 idea but i know there ausome subs and all but everyone had them so scratch that idea oops another huge scentence by the way did i mention that i suck at spelling

Ok GUY,
Here is the down low---it's gonna suck. Pure and simple. Interchangable ports? Why? My frind had his car metered and it hit 144.2 with only 1 15 inch JL W3 and it was not even three hours broken in, and it was sealed.
So here you are now, your back seat I am thinking has been crudely ripped from it's home in your car aka the "Granny Moblie?" Well I don't know about you but my 3.5 ES is more than what my grandma needs.
Anywho. I think that you need to take some time and find out what it is that you are really after- SQ or SPL. If it is one or the other or both it will guide you in the direction that you need to go, which btw is not with a pair of 18's. 18's are pointless. They have such large amounts of cone area that it becomes uncontrolled and distorted, plus I can almost gurantee that you barely have the necessary space for one 18", let alone a pair!
12's and 10' are the best speakers to work with, they allow you to use multiple drivers, you have smaller enclosure spce that is required and the sound is just better. The fact of the matter is that you can achieve more sound and higher spl with multiple drivers of smaller size than of what you can get with just 1 or 2 huge drivers.
I think that you are just trying to put something in your car, and you have no idea of what you are doing. Go to some competitions in your area and talk to the guys, see what they are hitting and what they are doing it with. Go to your local shops, ask questions, obviously you have lots because you are fishing for whales in a puddle.
Finally, take some time to do some research!!! If you want your system to crank make sure you know what it is that you are doing!!! Four Yellow tops??? Uh- I don't think so. See you are already headed for disaster. Go to http://www.sounddomain.com and start asking questions there. They have lots of different forums geared for all levels of knowledge, classes of sound, and $$$ to spend. You are in serious need of instruction and I along with lots of others are willing to help, but damn, look before you leap. I spent four months reading, listening in stores, asking questions all over and just learning all I could about the products I wanted before I even spent a dime. It will be to your advantage if you do the same, I knew what my system was going to sound like even before it was in, and now that it is in, I have no regrets, I hope only the same for you.
Good Luck!
Jeff

Personally I think it's a great idea. Depending on what your tuned to, I'm guessing you could do around 155-157 without any tweakin and possibly almost 160 with lots of tweakin and assistance from others. check out www.termpro.com for more assistance and the opinions you're looking for. Are you gonna compete?

18" subs eh? I'm not sure wether to laugh, or to feel sorry for you spending so much money on them. But seriously though, as the others said, reconsider using smaller subs man.

Or how about the fact your going to have a wall in the back of your car, aka easy access to theft? I think its great you want to go to competitions, but investing all that money into a stereo, and having it on display like that doesn't sound like the best thing to do. I have killer sound in my ride right now with just 2 infinity kappa perfect 12.1 subs
