the 1850 is a good cab, but you will need to use them in stacks of four.....

USB in a stack??? or on top of 1850 horns? 1850's play quite high so should meet you're tops no need for kicks. If you are getting at having a stack of USB's like any similar design the more units the lower they will drop (within reason). I've used 3 a side, should drop to 40hz loaded with PD's good hight for you're top boxes and kick like hell ;) .

the main question is whats your budget, for just the cabs and drivers, and how many people do you need the rig to cover.....

A horn loaded speaker will have increased efficiency, and a larger radiating surface which means more SPL per watt, however this is balanced by a smaller bandwidth meaning less flexibility, and a more complex/expensive/heavy box.

For psy trance, I have heard two 1850 horns a side sound good, I find that the energy in psy trance is a lot more upper bass/kick, so its not that much of an issue if your cabinets don't quite hit the 40Hz -3db mark.
