When creating parallel / series sub setups, is there a limit?

I mean, if I configure a sub array as to have an "X" ohm nominal impedance, there *must* be some sort of limit... I might think inductance or capacitance might shoot off limits... or does it have to do something with the damping factor of the amplifier?

I think I slept thru my EE classes... Posted Image

There's no limit as far as I know - capacitance and inductance will remain constant in any array of a given total impedance, except you might not get the efficiency boost you're looking for once you get above 100db/watt or so. I don't know why that happens, but it makes sense that you can't just parallel a lot of speakers to exceed 100% efficiency.
