I really like the sound and impact of scoop bass bins

I've got a pair of empty scoop bass bins made of 1 inch thick plywood,covered in black vinyl plastic covering. The cutout is 18 inches.

So Either The Eminence Omega pro 18 18 inch [600w rms]
or the Fane collossus 18[600w rms] or maybe the Eminence Kilomax 18 inch [1000w rms]
The cabinet dimensions are 150cm high x 80cm wide x 100cm deep.
So could some tell me which of these drivers are most suitable,for the scoop bass bins.
It's really weird the 15 version doesn't sound that good,and the 18 version sounds amazing,[bass notes hitting you in the chest,and earthquake thundering low bass].Only one problem with design,big and heavy.
Putting castors[wheels] on the bottom sorts out the weight problem,but that only leaves the size being a problem to transport.
My friend who owns the site below,custom designs 15 inch,18 inch,21 inch,and 24 inch scoop bass bins,and tweeter array boxes,and mid boxes,as well as selling a load of reggae vinyl on his site.
