Hey guys just looking for some help advice and opinions. I currently have a rig of 8 QSCKW181 subs and 4 QSC KW152 tops

Looking to upgrade, just bought 4 Db Technologies Ingenia IG3T's and was looking for some single subs to pair them with.

Was looking at the Db Tech sub 18H, RCF 8004AS, FBT Q118AS or FBT Horizon VHA 118SA " I guess you can tell the price point and quality i am looking at"
Not sure if they are updated models to the above mentioned subs.
Will be using them indoor and out door on occasion
Any help, suggestion, opinion whether positive or negative is greatly appreciated.

If you're looking to upgrade, then spending money for roughly the same doesn't make sense.  Even a slight upgrade doesn't make sense if you're hauling roughly the same amount of gear and charging the same prices.  I assume you're looking for deeper bass and same or more output from less space?  This rules out most/all (I haven't heard them all) of the ones you have listed, as well as the QSC KS118. 

If you're set on single 18" self powered options - RCF Sub 9004AS and BassBoss SSP118 are worth a closer look. 

If you're not hung up on single 18" self powered - that opens options to JTR Orbit Shifter, Cap 215 Pro, Cap218 Pro, BassBoss SSP218, VTC ELS118 (passive), Danley TH118XL (passive), and others.

Personally, I would rather have fewer quantity of higher quality subs.  2x Danley TH118XL's will be an upgrade in quality and extension and size of what you have now, and similar SPL.  If you add another pair - that's a solid step up and worth the money.  Also check out (4) of the Captivator 215 Pro subs or (4) Orbit Shifters.

My bad i should have stated that i was looking to keep all speakers powered and was also open to double 18 subs. Thanks for your input Caleb.

You would need at least 2x18 per side, preferably 4x18 for outside. So maybe 2x8004 and one 8006 to start with?
