It was not a formula. It was an adjustment. In the early days I had made JBL 4530's and '20's in an official capacity. As stated before, JBL always published their drawings to encourage people to buy their chassis speakers. The first 18" scoops I saw were gruesome. So I thought I could do a better job.
The S118 got scaled up by the difference in cone area between the 15 and the 18. This gave me a percentage figure. This is what all the measurements were increased by. quote]


Tony would that be the same as taking the plan for the JBL and dividing all the dimensions by 15 and multiplying by 18 ,or is it abit more involved than that?


If you were scaling up a box, that would be one way of doing it, but scaling up from one cone area to another will give you a different figure. cone areas are not pro rata with cab sizes.

I don't think the difference in cone area from one 18 to another will matter, as it will only be a small amount, if any. The build quality of the box will make a bigger difference.
