Doubling up on drivers vs. dedicated midbass

I haven't seen a discussion on this one yet:

What is the benefit of doubling up your drivers for your front soundstage. I am assuming the benefit is limited to more output, distributed equally along the entire frequency passing through the voice coils, but I wonder if there would be an increase in midbass relative to higher frequencies too?

The reason I ask is I will either double up on my frivers in the front and run the same frequency range to both (two ohm load - 250RMS x 2), or I will dedicate one pair for midbass and the other pair for midrange (4ohm load and 125RMS x 4). I have had a three-way set-up before with nice results but maybe two way set-up with 4 drivers will be better?

Thanks - I would test it all myself but it will be awhile before I get my doors ready this.

there would be some constructive interference and some destructive interference, depending on the phase of the coinciding soundwaves. when /\ meets \/, you get --, to put it simply.

personally, i would rather do a 3 way.

Run the separate midbass.
