You say you "want to take the strain of the FR125s"

Go buy some more FR125s, and they will have to move less

i love the idea of 4 either side which would look cool, but i cant afford 300 for 6, i have read a lot of the Bipole designs but i dont have enough room behind for that, so what about just two firing front both running full range?

although it would be sealed, from the calculations on WinISD, i think i want a little more bass, F3 around the 55-60Hz

You will have to make frontbaffle so that the distance from both drivers to your ears in your listening position is exactly the same

"more bass", you say, OK!
Buy four WR125, they cost less - and then make a simple two way with crossoverpoint between WR and FR somewhere between 300 and 800 hz

sounds good, but buying 8 WR125S's is only 30 cheaper than 6 FR125S's

Well, there is a bipole minionken on planet10 made for two FR125

It should work with both drivers on front

There are other bipoles shown, where you can get an idea about cabinetsize fore two drivers

Personally I might try with a big widebaffled closed box

Hi,

another option is to go 0.5 way with a FR125S+WR125S(0.5) per side.

One advantage of bipoles is they do not have a baffle step in the response.

If you put both drivers on the front it needs to be a 0.5 way for Baffle Step Compensation.
