only for looks dude, you probably don't have the trunk space to make them sound right, or even in the hz range the songs are recorded at.... and they won't be louder either...... 15s would do more justice, infact 1 15 in the properly ported box would give the most boom that I can think of for any one car trunk

18's and ported don't mix...lol (only my personal opinion). If you have the room, go ported.

I would also look into some other choices (the CompVR's are pretty nice subwoofers, but there are others).

they might not get "as loud" as 15's, but damn can they get low. my buddy had a pair in a little mazda 626 and his steering wheel would jump like 3"!! He had em' in a 7cubic ft box.

the 15s would work fine im sure.....the reason im looking at the 18s is because im getting a pretty good deal on them used. They are real cheap on ebay too, though...199 for 18, or 177 for a pair of 15s

i got the 18s put in yesterday.....they hit very nice and loud, even through my firewall(backseat). the only bad thing is any part that could rattle is rattling right now....ill have to see what i can do for it, but the rattling sounds rather shitty.....
