Need a DSP amp, like a behringer 6000, And then you trick the inuke to boost the low end 12-15db in a way that it also boosts below 20hz, 20hz is the lowest you can DSP on a Behringer but you can trick it to keep boosting, you can set a negative filter that ends up boosting, dunno how someone knew that but Its pretty awesome they do. A weeknight with a Umik and behringers DSP would get it all dialed in. I would think at 20hz 120db is possible. Thats a question for the minds in the JBL thread though.
I run mine in prefab dual 15" subwoofer boxes, 2cuft per driver and I have a behringer 6000dsp.
Hell if 8 dont do it....16 probably will! But if you have 8 laying around Id put them in 2 pods of 4 in seperate sides of the room to start. When I just had 4 of them It was tolerable for me, those 4 preformed better than 4 Dayton Audio Sub 1500s, 8 is better, and 16 better still lol. 16 8's has just slightly more cone area than 7 18's, but you have 16 voice coils instead of 7, and they already like midbass. You already have 8 sitting there so it seems like a no brainer to me. put the 8 you have in 2 cu ft each, get an amp or use one you have for testing....see how you like it.
The jbl 12's naturally have to have dsp around 70hz because its LOUD. Running them with no DSP gets you no low end and all midbass. So you DSP them to take some midbass out and add all the low end.
also, 16 12's is equal to 5.2 21" drivers. But I bet that 21 cant do midbass like 16 12's can!
