Default SMALL horn bookshelf ?

All,
I recall somewhere seeing a small folded horn bookshelf. It looked to use a 4-6" driver. Judging off of that, it seemed to be about 12" high, by 8" wide, by perhaps 16" deep. Anyone ? Would there be a benefit of a small horn over a bass reflex design ? Sorry, but I am obviously a FR noob.
I'm currently building a low powered (4-6w) SE amp for my bedroom, and space is a premium (The amp itself is going to fit inside a jewelry box). All I am after would be response down to 65hz or so; as I have a feeling the tiny OPT's I am using roll off below 55hz anyway.

Thanks !
Steve

Gents,
Thanks for the help - Sreten, those bookshelves sure look tempting; 94db would be an excellent match for the amp and room size.
Anyone else ?
I was looking at planet 10's fronken box. Im sure it would be an excellent match as well; but I don't have a table saw, etc. So that kinda puts it out of the running.

Thanks !
Steve

Anything that small isn't really going to be a horn, but a TL variation... doesn't really matter as long as it works....

I have a set of BK101s on my test bencg that work wonderfully... (no tweeter used anymore)
