If my eventual room needs more output though, I think I'm definitely going to consider dual quads, lol. The thing that drives me nuts though is DOUBLING the $ for a scant few dbs of output in re to (2) cabs vs (4).
I've seen your current space. Sure would look good with dual quads stacked to the ceiling.
It only took you 72 hours to make the boxes you have now. Plan around the wifes next weekend or business trip and slap together two more... Better yet, "plan" a relaxing weekend get away for her and her girls (sisters/mom/friends/etc...). When you build your new boxes, just be sure to make some nice grills and your new boxes will blend right in with the rest of your AV gear and go unnoticed...lol
It's better to ask for forgiveness than permission, right?
I can email you my sketchup files and cutsheets if you want...

You increased your output while, at the same time, lowering the THD the lowest distortion super-sub in the world...
I must say though. I've seen your space. Sure would look good wth dual quads stacked to the ceiling.
