Need more bass from ripoles (BD-Design)

Hi, i have ripoles for bass with 4 bd15 drivers, sounds ok but i want more bass.
The ripole is filtered st 200 hz 4order LR via a Marchand tube xover with independent volume for horns and bass. The poweramp for the ripoles is a Hegel 200 w AB
Wich would be the trick? Dsp to increase gain in some frequencies? Put the drivers in another enclosure? Cut lower with more slope?

Hi, You will need to EQ. The simplest way is with DSP. Or you can use Behringer DEQ2496 to start with and you still keep your equipment. More power is always better too, especialy when you need better control or output at low end. But be careful with those bd15, they do not have high xmax... A measurement tools also help to see what are you dooing. Its a fun...

In 2017 I made 2x18 OB with FaitalPro drivers.

I made EQ on Hypex like this:

and get this (Mic and REW used):

Just to get a picture ...
