Can you post a few URLs to the speakers and designs you are interested in. Saving us a few minutes on Google will increase the responses I suspect.

Here is the URL. http://www.planet10-hifi.com/boxes-CSS.html

Maybe my question can be: Differences between single and double mouth BVR

I see you beat me to the link

The double mouth will produce extreme low end with a bit more ease because of the greater coupling area. It also requires that you can listen further away to allow the signal from the 2 mouths to integrate.

The other consideration is of course WAF.

WAF be damned...I say build the double mouthed BVR. Vertial space typically is free

In fact. I have the wood for a pair of these already cut in my garage. I've been meaning to put them together but I've been extremely short on time.

I am in the middle of building some double horns mtm's, a lot better to my ear than any TL I have ever built and i love TLs, worth a look. They are built like the Chang series so it is a short path and easy to build. And yes the air volume is a little large for anything other than a low power tube / gainclone.

^Is the top mouth opening taller than the bottom or am I imagining that?
