Mostly positive results...

Here is an array with 8. I'd guess this is good to 500 Hz before it starts rolling off.

Yes.

I'd have to dig around in my mail to see if i have any other reports back.

So you have panels?

Depending on the amp you have 9 can be wired up for 4 ohms or 10 for 10 ohms.

You need a baffle 4x as wide as a panel to get them to get down to the 250 Hz range... then XO to some woofers.
