I like my Linn Saras but they dont have quite enough oomph for my very large sitting room - already I have had to replace drivers on account of pushing them too much on the cannons on the 1812. My fault but until the moment they died they sounded pretty good. I have now replaced the B200s and all is back to "as was".

My problem is WAF and so I have been toying with the idea of building some "slightly larger saras" or "smaller briks" using the following. Peerless 10" 4ohm bass drivers in isobaric configuration but connected in series to give 8 ohm load - Monacor 6" mid range and scanspeak tweeter. I have calculated the box will be slightly wider then my saras and about 7 inches taller and one inch deeper.

So much for the dreaming but is there a suitable crossover I could use as I have no idea on how to design one?

Alternative project -much easier - get another pair of Saras - scrap the B200s and replace by Peerless or Monacor 4ohm units (much higher power ratings but very similar characteristics) putting them in series and ditching one of the crossovers in each box. Sounds simples - but would it work?
