Default "BD Pipe"-type speaker using FR125S and WR125S?

I like the look of the BD-Pipes, here:


... but I really think I'd like something with a bit more Oomph.

The FR125S and WR125S combo, as in the dipole designs here:


... are quite appealing, but I don't really want speakers that have to sit significantly away from the wall. To my mind, a speaker which has the form of the BD pipes, but with the greater power-handling of the CSS drivers would be good. (The angled rear driver means it can sit closer to a wall.)

1. Is it possible to re-jig the BD-pipes design to utilise the FR & the WR drivers? ie same height, but broader and deeper box?

2. If no to Q1, it would presumably be possible to meld two sealed boxes into a tower to give the external appearance of the BD pipe. Or perhaps a sealed & an aperiodic?

What does everyone think?

(I did search, but was unable to find any pages or threads on this topic.)


A speaker-builder's parable: "That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp. But the fourth one stayed up. And that's what you're going to get, Lad, the strongest castle of all."
