BD15 vs Altec 416A (8ohm) (BD-Design)

Have been doing a bit of experimenting with my BD15s lashed into various bits of ply wood.

My conclusion is that the BD15 shows itself as an even better speaker when removed from a box and placed on an open baffle. The downside is that the sound is pretty attenuated when mounted in the baffle size I want of 50cm wide 150cm tall.

So what to do?

1. Get another pair of BD15s so I have two per side.
2. Use EQ to bring up the volume.

It's probably not too difficult to guess your response. If it's to add two BD15s together, is the volume simply doubled or will the amp now see an 8 ohm load and produce still more volume?
