I was thinking of adding one more 12 but that limits my power options but if I ditch the 12s and go with 1 18 it gives me lots of options what Im looking at for real is 4 12s and giving it 4000 watts or 1 18 and giving it 4000 watts with the option to upgrade and strap a amp for a total of 8000 watts.

Well If you take normal 12's (12w6v2 at 16.5mm one way linear) V somthing like my 4hp that will throw 52mm one way (ok not exactly fair since its out side of linear which is around 30+ ) then the cone area is made up in displacement. Cone area isn't the end all its the volume it can displace also look out for possible cancellation issues and group delay. Typically the lowest amount of drivers in a system the better. Mandos is right if you are running into power compression the 12's would be better. What it really comes down to is simply what you want to do.
Im thinking of adding one more 12 for a total of 4 or ditching the 3 I have for 3 better ones or going with one 18.
