WinISD Apparent amplifier load power (VA)

I have searched everywhere online and cannot fine a definitive answer to the following question:

When using modelling multiple drivers in one cabinet/design in WinISD: Is the "apparent amplifier load power (va)" graph the load for one driver or all combined?

Give me an example of a driver model and number of drivers (type of connection series/parallel).

Just checked WinISD Pro beta 0.50a7 does not appear to correct for multi driver impedance correctly. Chose a peerless XLS10 woofer and tried several configurations, 2, 3, 4, and 5 driver combinations, result is the same impedance for all, meaning the VA load is calculated incorrectly.

It is an old "beta" program.

It's L26RO4Y I'm looking at - 2 drivers. Unfortunately it's not in the database and I can't seem to upload the WinISD driver file I created.

Do you think in general the apparent load shows as too much or too little?

Also, can I take this opportunity to ask: when measuring the output of a dual driver sealed subwoofer - do you position the microphone at the point on the baffle that is between both drivers?

Thank you for your help.

Sorry forgot to say each driver will be driven by their own 300 watt amplifier module...
