If you're going Tuba 60 then you might as well use the Lab15 and do the cabs 27" wide for the most bang for your buck. The Delta 12LFs have about 1/3 the xmax of a Lab driver so aren't capable of pushing enough air so they're not suitable at all for this use.
4xOT12s, 2xT39s@22", TTLS@18", 2xT60@18"

Is there a reason though that the Tuba 60 requires the LAB12 drivers instead of the Delta-12LF drivers recommended for the Tuba 30s?
The T60 was specifically designed for the LAB drivers. The D12LF is the least expensive driver recommended for the T30, not the best. Phrases often used here are 'Buy once, cry once' and 'You only get one chance to do it right the first time'. Heed them. :cop:

All great advice posted as usual. If you don’t exclusively listen to EDM genres that their bass is centered around 35 hz and under, my advice would be build 4 Titan 48’s and power them with an Inuke/NX amp. Most music doesn’t extend to under 35hz and people will be more impressed buy the overall loudness vs extension.
Thank You All for Your Time!!...Really!

Built:
2xDR300's
4xDual-30” Tuba 60’s
1x20” THT
TrT 10" Driver-10" Wide
