Anyway is Mr. Geddes still around? GedLee official website says hes retired.

Feel free and keep me in loop with your own multisub project. Thanks in advance
He's been retired for some years but still participates. Certainly multisub is the best solution for real-world spaces IMO, I've tried a few different configurations over the years and my rig is generally appreciated by listeners for the bass and sense of spaciousness, which is highly correlated to good bass. Frequency extremes tend to help each other, there's an old rule of thumb that if your highs are rolled off your lows should be too, and vice versa, if you're going to have high top-end bandwidth/power response, you need a good sub(s) to balance it.

I recently placed a second sub in my living room. This was for no other reason than I bought two empty Lima enclosures at a very low price and had a pair of jbl gto804 drivers.

The drivers are less efficient than the single 12" 96L unit I was using, so some adjustment to the gain was needed. The headroom is probably less, but the effect of two subs is very good.

The quiet spot at one end of the couch has gone and the low end is now noticeable in that it does not wipe out in certain spots or frequencies. Film effects still go boom! But bass in music doesn't now Then I spotted this thread.........

Hello guys.
As I mentioned above, Im bulding DIY mixing studio (control room) and would like to use multisub solution to tame room modes.
I have one question. Is possible to close the port of the originally ported subs to achieve faster sub response? Im planning to buy few Presonus T10 active subs. Could sealing the ports make any damage to the drivers?
