A 24" cylinder compared to a 24" x 24" x X" box, the box ends up a lot shorter for the same volume. Plus in a dual opposed config you have to lift the enclosure to give the bottom driver clearance...

The general depression between 80 and 500Hz could explain why you don't think there's enough slam. Your subs appear to be about 5dB too loud.

2) Why two miniDSPs? A single unit has 4 outputs.
3) Make sure you get a balanced model (ie: do not buy the unbalanced / RCA 2x4)

How are they blending with your mains? Slam is not low bass. It's in the crossover region of your mains & sub.

How about several seconds instead of less than a 6.5 cycle CEA tone burst? Brian has posted the sustained output capabilities and step downs of some of the SpeakerPower amps before.

When using high efficiency mains your ears will probably give out before the amp does, especially if you're using a subwoofer with them.

Perhaps Erich or the respective designer would know better. I don't know what the true power handling capability of the tweeters is, but clipped waveforms have a LOT of high frequency energy.

Push in the driver and hold it there for several seconds, then let go. It it pops right back out you may be good. If it slowly comes back out you probably have leaks.
