Isobarik style brings you a 1/4 advantage in woofer baffle size, but no significant advantage in distortion and the disadvantage of a -6 dB sensitivity against a parallel arrangement of the two woofers. Using the same woofers of the NS-1000 also doesn't provide a deeper bass response.

I would use a high efficiency, professional 15" or 18" long throw speaker (e.g. JBL or BMS) for this application and keep the Yammi woofers as spares ...
But this needs some space ...

They have a lot of good info on sub's, some of the more heavy stuff i written by Ilkka Rissanen now R&D engineer by Genelec (Genelec is one of the top brands in the pro studio monitor market).
