Oh, definitely 4 Maelstroms sharing 1440 watts. I have a single Mael on 350 watts and it is plenty because the driver sensitivity is way up there.

I went with 10 cu ft tuned to 21Hz but that is on the large end so you could go with a smaller size if room is a concern (which I imagine it might be if you go with 4 Posted Image

I guarantee you that 4 Maelstroms with 1440 watts will give you the Huge output, for movies, movies, movies!!! you are after! Posted Image

Search for one of my posts within the last few months that showed several maelstrom designs. But no matter whatever enclosure you go with, 1180 for 2 drivers is way too much power. 4 drivers on 1440 will be louder and utilize the power in a safer way too.
