Driver Advice: Multi-driver tall narrow build to fill huge room volume
I tried to be as descriptive as I could in the title... I'm looking for advice on choosing a driver to build two multi-driver tall narrow subs to fill a huge room volume.
Let me clarify, I'm thinking of 4 each 8" or 10" drivers per sub. So a total of 8 drivers in two enclosures that will be narrow in width (under 12" wide), front firing and as tall as necessary (within reason... 8' sheet of mdf seems like a reasonable max). Depth can be up to about 20".
My wife is complaining about a 13" cubed Sunfire Signature series dual 12" driver sitting in the corner of the room. I am unhappy about the amount of bass and would like a winter project. I have a large (11' tall) built in/on wall entertainment center. There is about 1' on either side that could accommodate a floor standing subwoofer.
I'm hoping for a reasonably priced driver since I will be using 8 of them, the Dayton HO 10" is $130, which is a bit daunting but is not totally out of the question. Immediate room volume is roughly 12,500 cu ft. but opens up to a couple hallways, and living room. It could push 20,000 cu ft if I include those spaces.
I have an inuke DSP3000 that I was thinking of using to drive them. If someone has experience with a great performing, high power 8" or 10", budget speaker I'd appreciate some input!?!?
Thanks in advance!

Reason: added "Budget" to the wish list...
