Default Clarification Needed

Hi -

It sounds like you're saying you have two sets of drivers and one cabinet, but in the text of your post you cite "1x" for the drivers- so I for one am a little confused as to the actual number of "things" you have.

Yes there is a better way - get another cab and build a stereo pair.

marka, if I read the situation you want to buy two kits and put them in one cabinet. Yes but it's better to put a center divider in the cabinet so the speakers don't interfere with each other. Make sure the cabinet is twice as big as they recommend for one speaker as you can't put them both into a small cabinet. The big question is: are you planning to feed this big speaker with a mono or stereo input? The reason I ask is that you are asking about paralleling the XO.

The woofers will dictate which to use, ported or sealed. I don't see a reason to try one of each.
