Chop, My main goal with a design is to use two 12" woofers under a single SEOS-24. Your design sounds interesting. Hopefully you can also get the passive crossover figured out as well. I'm not sure I understand the reason for four 15's, but should be neat to see a crazy man at work.
I think your plan is a great one. It will be replicable, and probably have more output and finese than 90% of people will ever want.
Mark is the one who convinced me to go with four again, and in a sealed alignment, for the ability to extend really low with high output. I REALLY, REALLY enjoyed the CAt12s running full range with no subs. Basically, he suggested that four 15s could provide that and then some...room dependant of course, as I will be trying to fill a big space. I think they will prove very usefull for BluRay concert party nights. Plus, 4 15s in the mains was just interesting enough to get Mark to want to be involved
I'm sure that once we lock down (for the most part, as I'm sure there will be tinkering) the active xover details, we can translate to passives for the masses. I don't know that the passives will offer the same last bit of performance, I'm sure they won't, but should get someone wanting to replicate the build fairly close with passives.
