What about a negative double showing 4 spades. If partner can bid 2 spades showing 4, you know you have at least 18 cards in the black suits. Then it depends on your methods. If 3 hearts is a general force, you could bid that. If it specifically asks for or shows a heart stopper for NT then don't bid that. Partner would need both red suits stopped. If you play splinters bid 4D (I want to be in game and I have a singleton or void in D, partner. You'd like to hear partner cue bid 4H in which case a slam is highly likely.
