It means that these are the drivers that at this point I am planning on using. I already have the two Vifa drivers. I have chosen the other drivers based on sensitivity matching and for the mid range a cone material similar to the upper woofer which I hope gives a good timbre match.

I have double 8"(SS) in a similar box and although both woofers are the same type they sound slightly different...it has proved to work best with 2 exstra magnets on bottom woofer only...one of those strange things

good luck!

The two woofers in the lower enclosure will be in seperate enclosures so I don't anticipate that thier mechanical and acoustic variances will be too much of a problem to deal with. If they were in the same space I would think that would be a totally different issue.

I have done some outstanding sounding aperiodics but mine are different in that it is not an attempt to stuff a high qts speaker in a small box. With mine I use a speaker of around .32-.38 qts, in a volume that would be .6 -.7 Q in sealed box. Then I tune the resistive vent by ear. I love the relaxed timbre quality of this loading. It sounds more natural to me. It sounds more like an infinite baffle loading which I like.
