    ^^^This. Either get more T1's if you want more, or get a different type of woofer. Are they in a prefab box? If so, building a properly designed box for those will usually yield more output, without paying for more woofers.

    Re: advice on a build

    What is your current setup? Any images or specs on the amp(s) and enclosure along with electrical?

    Many times fixing a "weak" point in the system will net a better result then trying to "cram more in" will.

    Re: advice on a build

    Yeah I combined subs once, thinking that it'd be okay cause they were about the same power. Not only is it a bad idea, but it's nerve-wracking to think that something may go wrong.
