Default 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.

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