Can active eq be used to increase output level at lower freqs

I was wondering if it might be possible to use active eq such as the minidsp to extend the usable low end of the tuba 18?

It may, but every 6dB of EQ doubles the driver excursion and quadruples the power, so it's no substitute for building a TableTuba. Hoffman's Iron Law isn't negotiable.
