    Because the larger the diameter the speaker, the more radiating area you have. The more radiating area you have, the louder it gets.

    I used to have a 18" subwoofer, and my brother has a different 18" subwoofer right now.

    The only downside to having a larger woofer is that *generally* your enclosure will have to be larger as well. Your high frequency response suffers as well, but even with a 18" woofer that isnt any issue until at least 500hz or higher.
