    What happens to the effective T/S parameters of a pair of identical drivers in a single enclosure? I'm not talking isobaric alignment, where the Vas is halved. I'd guess the Vas of the pair is double the Vas of a single driver, but can anyone confirm?

    And for the more general line array case, what happens for n drivers in a single box?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Yup basically just double the size of the box for the second driver. Most software programs will to that if you change the driver configuration.

    You'll actually get better performance using 2 drivers sharing a larger box, as compared to the drivers being in individual boxes.

    Thomas, why is it that you say that?

    I think you are referring to standing waves / interference patterns that are generated if your bass comes from 2 sources, but perhaps you know something I dont?
