Dimitri or Mileva should do fine with Hemp units from either company: scroll down http://www.planet10-hifi.com/boxes-fostex.html Plans are free for personal use. These cabinets have actually be licensed for commercial production by Lotus Acoustics, with modified FR8cs, for their Grass-shack range: http://www.audio-magus.com/product_p/wl1.htm

I've you've got the space (and the corners), consider a BIB.
http://www.zillaspeak.com/bib.asp If you need a small footpring, look at a metronome (also on Planet10's sites). It would need baffle step compensation (where as the BIB definitely won't and the Dimitri probably won't), so you'll lose some efficiency. If you want something even smaller there is an MLTL design kicking around here somewhere.

Don't build a regular bass reflex enclosure unless you really must for space reasons. Any of these will offer much better bass and greater ease and dynamic range due to the greater control of excursion. I started off with a BR, and the BIB is a whole different world.

A BIB is 6 pieces (and 2 prs out of that are the same (front & back, sides)). The spreadsheets will generate a cut list from the numbers.

Default Cut plans spreadsheet for BIB

Hi Dave,

I'm new here and am looking to build my first set of DIY. The BIB looks like an easy way to go. Any recs for someone who likes acoustic, jazz, bluegrass, blues, and classical tending toward large scale? I'm also a fan of fostex, so anything "synergenical" (if that is a word) along those lines would be appreciated.

Any recommendations along those lines would be appreciated, as well as other enclosures you consider looking at?

Much appreciated,
Tony

Tony,

We've not actually built a BIB yet, when we do it will be for the FE126 or FE127 likely. Everyone has their favorites depending on which compromises they find easiest to live with.

There is a monster BIB thread here -- so large that it can be intimidating -- and some shorter more specific threads.

1st question to ask is what amp you are going to use, and what is your room like?

For larger scale it would be best to use one of the 6 inch or larger Fostex drivers in a BIB. I find the 127e can sound congested in stock form - never heard an enabled one. All of the Fostex drivers i have heard become congested at high volumes. The larger drivers just handle it better - imo.

>>> what amp you are going to use, and what is your room like?

Yes, how much power will you be using and how big is your room?
