Anyone know the thread size of the footers?

Yes - the thread size is 3/8-16

Clayton,
Could you double up the 18's, increase the sensitivity and do a passive version of the X1?

The 18 inch woofer is a dual voice coil design, running parallel at 4 Ohms. So you can't gain sensitivity by adding a second woofer because parallel would make the speaker 2 Ohms and series connection would yield an 8 Ohm impedance but have the same sensitivity. So you would really need 4 woofers to play that game. A better approach is to create a passive network, using an autoformer to match the horn level to the woofer.
