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 :)

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

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.
