If they are in one end of a 100' long room, getting 100db at the other end will require more than 100db at the sub.....but I don't know how much more.

200 bucks is not a lot to spend but if you have the amps and Rackdrive already and can build the cabs yourself, you can make it work for 200.
yeah i have the amp Crown XLS 2000 drivecore and driverack ,
i will use one channel for subs and the other for tops

I would look at a folded Tapped sub. The Pi12 is way out of your price range if you need to buy their flat pack.
yeah i posted here because i want to know what you guys think of the Pi12

A pair of drivers come in at $270 - design uses 2 per enclosure
So $1,170 per channel X 4 channels = $4,6800 ex shipping

A few words of warning.......
I'm a beta tester of Planet10's EmKen (Eminence Beta12Lta in 'Ken enclosure), I had the wonderful thought of buying a second pair of drivers for the beta build enclosure and building a pair of 'subs' and doing local party hire...... My thoughts were a pair of 'Half' Jensen Imperials.
Then I looked at the cost of drivers - 400 ($600) each

Soooo...... I'm looking into a sealed enclosure with a Eminence 15" (maybe an 18"). Even with 'reasonably priced' components, the cost of 6 or 7 8ft x 4" sheets of 25mm BB ply makes one draw breath sharply.

yeah, so i think the SS15 is a no brainer
have you see the thread ?
is made with just one sheet of plywood with a 3012 15" driver
you can use several from the list, is flat from 40 to 100 i think

here is the JBELL SS15 sub thread
Single sheet TH challenge

is you buy 6 or 7 sheets as you stated , you can make 6 or 7 subs ( altough you want an even number ) so make 8 and rock the house
check the specs on the thread above
it rocks and dont break the bank and you can build with 1/2 batlic birch plywood so your back is happy also

i have seen that thread
what i found difficult is navigate to 40 pages of posts to gather the info
would be nice that the thread starter can post on the 1st page the links
to the diagrams and parts and stuff
like Jbell did on his SS15 thread

this one uses double 18"
do you have enough power availeble?
Click the image to open in full size.
you sim it like a bassreflex.
the opposite speakers cancel even harmonics.
