Super 8 cabinets suggestion
 
Hi I just aquired a new set of audio nirvana super 8 for 250$ inc postage from Usa to Greece.
Kill mids, very good highs.
The bass is a bit shy but sweet..
Note, I cannot speak about the bass right now because I am just mounting them in a very limited space cabinet. I do not expect a loud bass from this cabinet.

I am thinking of making a Folded horn (envelope), or a Horn cabinet.
I have been told that these speakers like horns. Theoretically I would agree by noticing the bass section in my super8.
Has anyone experience with these two types of cabinets, any suggestions?
Horns are 75% efficient and bass reflex only 5%...

If choosing the horns I would like to go for the fostex fe206 design as it has no diagonal wood pieces inside and it is therefore easier to construct.
If choosing the folded envelope I would go for a simple design with only one mid diagonal wood piece.
Any thoughts?

You can consider these if you want big bass from these drivers.

These are transmission lines eh? Better than back loaded horns?

Sort of. A tapped conical horn. Different than a BLH.
