I want to build 2 subs to use with my hi-fi and would like to hear recommendations for good drivers. Over at another forum, more focused on home theater, people talk a lot about TC Sounds drivers. From these Im considering two LMS-R 15".

Each driver would have it's own sealed enclosure and both subs would play the summed up signal from L & R comming from a DSPeaker Anti-Node 8033S-II.

My speakers are B&W 804S.

There will be enough work for both subs to do and the result will be more musical, especially on acosutic music in simply miked/real stereo.

below about 80hz, isn't the bass summed anyway?
And given the ability to tell where LF comes from in an indoor environment, does stereo bass matter much?
Too much is never enough
