Wait I am confused what exactly is your problem? I would diagnose that before you go modify box or replace a woofer.

Can you more clearly describe the problem? At this point I can't tell if...

Amps are a consideration too. You are probably better off with (8) because it's easier to match up to amps in this config.

Also the next 2 past 8 don't add much (1db) so what is the point ? If...

I'd probably pay money to see and hear that, like a ride at a carnival. I bet it's something like this:

Those JBL are nearly full range. They have massive midbass capability. You really only need a ULF thumper. 24" might be nice, although I tend to think the same motor on an 18" has a better...

Don't get me wrong- I'd love to hear (4) Ghorns and (4) Othorns in a theater.

Even that you can do with a router. It's just not worth the time. I would think butt joints or pocket screws would work just as well though.
