"I'd rather see for myself what happens than just make assumptions."
i'm with you and won't disagree with kicking in additional empirical data. that is always good.
i thought my comment was just straightforward physics. by front-back mounting the drivers, you will be minimizing the linear distortion (even order) products--averaging the weak leg of driver 1 with the strong leg of driver 2, you get the same response as the weak leg of driver 2 and the strong leg of driver 1. the "in stroke" vs. "out stroke" differential in bl, kms, etc. is what creates even order distortion. all the non-linear distortions (odd order harmonics) will remain. the odd order harmonics are the worst and need to be dealt with inside the motor. they can't be tamed outside the motor, except by adding lots of drivers which of course reduces lots of problems inside the motors...but that is not a mounting issue, rather a number of drivers issue.
