I'm not sure there's really a market niche for such a cab at this time.
Mike mentioned that I use a 15" Faital woofer in one of my recent cabs, and I've been very happy with it. Not quite the air-moving ability of the 15" Kappalite variant I use, but still very capable.
Judging the differences between a Euphonic Audio VL 108 and the Euphonic Audio VL 208, I'd say you are right on the mark. If you have to push the single 8" speaker in the VL 108, it just can't keep up. I'm sure that the Crazy 8's are much better at handling that, since they use the Faital. I think it would be very sweet to hear a two eight Faital cabinet combined with that exquisite crossover and horn the you use in the TC 112, but ultimately you're probably building a cabinet for a niche market, where others have already built a very fine product. There's also the weight differential between a single 8 and a pair of them, in the VL Cabinets it was one of the factors that bumped the weight of a VL 208 to 48 lbs., vs the weight of a VL 108, that was 27 lbs. In the end, the TC 112 is all I'll ever need. I used it last week in a club and the sonic results were stellar, all the other players loved it, and so did the audience.
