Hey,

I have and love two F2s with a 1000w amp in each. Is it worth the changing the amps to 6000w and adding a couple of slaves on top. Would look menacing if nothing else.
 Using Genelec 1037c monitors and a onkyo 5509.
I need only need a little push to this this. So tell me what a excellent plan I have.
Listen at about -5
Cheers

The 1037C's certainly have the capability to support the 4 SubMersives, and the dual stacks are super cool looking.  While we did this in the big Axpona demonstrations, we also set up the double stack at THE Show Newport 2014 in a small hotel room.

[900x900px-LL-ff8eda37_P1010491] 

Pushing the headroom another 6dB higher frees experimentation with EQ or target curves with no concern for headroom.  The vertical stack does usually also drive the room more evenly, with this effect being primarily in the upper subwoofer range.  One of the reasons I decided to introduce the + & slave option was that the vast marjority of those who had graduated to 4 SubMersives in a room immediately found that next level of headroom very enlightening as with 4 subs you subconsciously shift to thinking less about output and focus more on sound quality and getting things dialed in.  It's really all about getting the most effortless sound and balancing out the entire frequency range that reaches the listener.

4 is good. 8 is gooder. 16 is goodest!!!

Four in each corner - awesome looking; headroom galore; SPL levels to move mountains (or small continents!)

Seriously, Mark is right about where 4 takes you. I went from 2 to 4 and ended up with the best bass I had ever heard ( until Mark sold two dual 18's added to dual SubMersives to a friend of mine):

Go for it. Mark knows more about subs than anyone else in the known or unknown Universe!!!!!

Thanks for the push audioguy.
The new amps and a couple of slaves arrived on monday.
Just finished watching Cloverfield,the best bass i have ever heard.
Is stacking them a must? I have them each side of the Genelecs atm.

No, quite the contrary ... the only must is experimentation in placement optimization.

Correct --- using appropriate measurement gear (REW, OmniMic. Etc)
