Default HIVI Trinity 6 -3 way

Hey guys,
I have recently scored a pair HIVI Trinity 6 3-way Ribbon Coaxial speakers.

I'm having issue's trying to find a box design for them.
I have the specs from HiVi, however from previous use of HiVi there specs arent so accurate, and I dont have the equipment to test.


Have any of you seen a box designed for them?
HiVi now has a box design, however I couldnt find its specs.

I did find a crossover design for the speaker, but no boxes.

MMhh..fearful ! Air movement is very limited by the steel chassis . The suggested crossover schematic takes in account each sub-driver's parameter ,trying to flatten the impedance rise of each way . Try to lower woofer's Qms
with a lot of <sound absorber>,even light felt around the basket.
Box won't be too big , I imagine . An Ikea bowl (two sandwiched) should work.
Cheers

That was my initial take as well - why is the back closed by steel frame? I guess TL design is out of the question... Cheap enough to try something with it though...

Swan's cabinet - 215*295*385
Another Chinese cabinet - 360*240*400

It has been awhile, I put them into some box's same dimensions as swans built pair.
Haven't put a finish on them yet, I will post pics when they are done.

I'm quite happy with there sound considering what there are. The mid and bottom end are lacking slightly, however I think that has something to do with my crossovers.

Otherwise they are good.

If you want to get more bass, a larger cabinet will be needed, some people have tried the BIB with good results, it is an easy cabinet to build, more info could be found here.
