    I’m working out a speaker plan that will use a pair of drivers wired in parallel.  Can both drivers be in the same enclosure or will each driver need its own space?

    I am assuming they are playing the same frequency response?  If so, absolutely.  In fact, I am planning a tower speaker with two W8-2096 in each tower. They will be sharing the same volume.  The problem you have is when they will be playing separate frequencies.  For example a midwoofer and a woofer/subwoofer in the same enclosure. You would want separate enclosures the.
