Anyway, it will be better for rock. Outdoor, last summer, I missed doing it and i regret cause the sound was too "tiny". But it was outdoor !

Hi, Tony.

Thanks for the interesting question.

It's great you are looking for ways to improve the sound for a live rock band.

When you add two more F1 Model 812s, place the new F1 Model 812s where you need the sound (not bundled together in pairs with the existing systems).

You don't gain much by placing two F1 Model 812s together (side-by-side or stacked) in one location.  In theory, you might get up to +3 dB gain in SPL, but you may also introduce Multiple Source Interference because the F1 Model 812s are providing the mid-high frequencies. You don't get the benefits of acoustic coupling you might expect from putting subwoofers together.

Here is a recent conversation you may find interesting.

4 812s/ sub coupling

Does that help?
