Default Multiple subs

I have 2 subs connected to my AV receiver but they dont match. front left is an SVS PC2000 and the right sub was built using an Dayton classic 12 and 300w amp in a Klipsch sub 12 enclosure. I decided to keep my B&W 685 bookshelf speakers with an 80hz xover. the -3db for the SVS is 17hz and the custom Klipsch would be closer to mid 20hz. I noticed the SVS doesnt do too well from 40-80hz but digs deep. the klipcsh has good mid bass but cannot be driven hard. I also have a 2ft3 sealed Eminence lab12 I built before getting the SVS. Should I use the eminence for mid bass and xover at 100hz on the sub amp or build a ported 8 or 10 sub port tuned to about 34hz or just get a 2nd PC2000?

Use what you have first, more is always better.
Use this eminence as sealed, most of those pro woofer won't do less than 30hz anyway so the ported is going to be huge for not much usefull output.

The XXLS and it's variant is pretty good to go low in small sealed box size.
I use 4 of them myself but they only go so loud before distorting badly.

I wouldn't go with less than 4 subwoofer.
used to think that 2 was good enough and I moved to 4, never looked back.

In fact, I'll be using 6 in my main room soon
