Default Multiple subs.

For a while now my main stereo loudspeakers have been using a pair of Peerless 830452s in a H baffle. These are very similar to the bass configuration used in the Orion as designed by Linkwitz.

What I have been considering, is doing away with the H baffles entirely and building 4 small infinite baffle cube shaped subs, with 1 XLS per cube. This would allow me to make use of boundary reinforcement and room gain.

The end result would end up giving me greater in room extension whilst requiring less power. Another benefit would be that the main panels would no longer be 'excited' by the vibrations caused by the H baffles that support them.

I know that Earl seems to recommend 3 subs, but this is in conjunction with the main loudspeakers, giving 5 individual sources.

Without the H baffles the main panels extend down to 100hz.

I don't have much, if any, experience at integrating subs into a system and am wondering if there would be any problems in trying this out?
