The Proteus ($45,000) is a huge speaker with lots of parts to its design: two tweeters and two raids mounted on an open baffle at the top; two woofers in a cabinet in the middle; and two pairs of subwoofer drivers mounted on the sides of a separate cabinet at the bottom.
I kept the R-S, 5-inch "woofers" and the enclosure but replaced the cheap tweeters with two of my spare Allison units and further altered the two packages by installing slightly modified Allison 2-way crossovers I also had on hand.
A similar thing happens with single woofers and subwoofers interacting with stiff, large-area wall, floor, and ceiling surfaces.
The tweeter/mid array is driven by the DSP-A1's two 110 WPC main amp sections and the woofers are powered by an 80 WPC AudioSource Amp One.
The 40Hz-80Hz range is totally messed up, with +6-30dB hills and valleys with a full range main speaker; if we are talking cubic foot boxes with 4-inch woofers, then 80Hz-200Hz may be sucked out completely.
In that analysis I mentioned a bass peak at about 80 Hz (again, this is a characteristic of many systems that have smallish woofers), and I again point out that a subwoofer can both somewhat flatten out such peaks and extend the bottom end.
I also did my usual maximum-output tests with the woofers. When I

You run leads from your power amplifier to one set of connectors on each channel (either on the woofers or on the pole bases; it does not matter), and then connect the poles to the woofers by means of supplied, six-foot speaker cables.
The SoundPoles operate from 180 Hz to 21 kHz, hence the need for the left and right woofers, which fill in the gap down to a rated 35 Hz.
The ST4s are normally sold in mirror-imaged pairs, and the owner's manual recommends that they be positioned with the woofers facing the side walls.
