    Hi Kwikas!

    I am very happy with the arrangement of JBL 2226's. There is way more midbass capability then I'll ever need and that's the way I wanted it. Seriously, a single 2226 is more than enough for most people and even dual 2226's is enough for any serious basshead. I went with quad because they were sealed and wanted lots and lots of headroom. Plus I got extras (after buying six) for a good price and it just sounded ridiculous and fun.

    Either option you are considering will be a ton of bass. No matter which configuration you end up with, neither will be a poor choice. I'd go with what is financially and practically sound for you.

    And yes it is a lot of drivers and being fully active it will be daunting to set up the first time but after that it's like any other system to operate.

    Good luck!

    Hi Scott.
    Are you still running 4 x 2226's in your L/F cabs up front? If you are, are you happy with this arrangement or would you make changes to it any way?
    I'm thinking of running 4 x 2226's in the L/F section of my centre channel (and 2 x 18's in the L/F boxes for left and right mains).
    Alternatively, I could run 2 x 18's in the centre and 1 x 18 for each left and right....or 2 x 15 for each left and right.
    I have the drivers, I'm just debating which way to go so asking someone who is into low frequency such as yourself might be a help in determining what I do.
    I've probably got too many drivers and it's confused me
    Cheers Andrew
