Peerless 830990 6-1/2" GFC Cone HDS Woofer
Hi PE! I'd like to put four of these together in a cabinet, flat sides together. A Bass Reflex or a transmission line. Do I just multiply the recommended box size by four? Would a larger cabinet allow me to get better bass response? Thanks, Bill Calkins
You simply increase the volume by the number of drivers you use. This will help with overall output, but it will not help with extension.

My Phase Tech PC-80s bit the dust (as all do). Repair the foam surround or use a replacement? Inside box vol is 0.498 ft^3 before 2.125 in x 6.25in port H 13.5 x W 7.5 x D 8.5. This one came pretty close in a rough calc. Thx
Our general recommendation is to replace the foam surrounds if possible, the 6-1/2" kit we have is designed to fit a cone that measures 4-3/4". If this is not possible the Peerless does model very well in that enclosure and would be an excellent choice, although the cabinet would need to be modified for it to fit properly.

what is the best size of cabinet can i use with this woofer
Search "WOOFER SELECTION GUIDE" at the top of the sight. Search for your part number and the guide will show you both ported and sealed cabinet options... In a sealed cabinet .707 is flat. .5 is critically flat - audiophile level... Above .707 and the bass starts to have a bump and warmer sound... much about 1 and it can get boomy. This drivers electrical parameters make it best suited to a vented cabinet...

I was wondering if pairing this with a vifa XT25TG30-04 ring-radiator tweeter would a good idea. any help with the crossover would also be much appreciated as well.
Both drivers are great. I would prefer you to select a woofer with better range on the high end. It tops out at 3000 and that's where you want to cross over the VIFA. Ideally the woofer would be good out to 5000 - then you would have plenty of extension on both drivers through the crossover range. With that you could get away with a simple 6db/oct crossover. You'll need to pad the tweeter as it's more efficient. An "L" pad in the xover will work fine. If you want to do a more sophisticated crossover - 24db/oct is the best and will protect your drivers at the same time
