Me old timber-shiverin' matey Pit speaks sage words there...

Dave's (as in Planet10) Tysen cabinet might suit if he's got the passive XO sorted.

Knullruffs - the problem with single subs: harmonics. No matter how strict the Xover, the driver itself produces harmonics way up into midrange. You need to put your sub right in the middle between the sats or your bass will jump all over the place.
So, OK - make silk stockings out of a sow´s ears. You need stands for your sats anyway, so why not have the stands contain a bass driver each? Instead of having to find three perfect locations for your boxes you only need two. DIY rulez!

Yeah, that's exactly what i was thinking. Making a sat with a stand containing a subwoofer. It will look like a floorstander but it's a sat with a sub.

You got it. Subwoofer doesn´t have to mean single - you just are gentleman enough not to make that pretty ballet dancer carry sacks of coal. And when crossing over low you can make the "stand" slim by having the bass driver fire sideways...no problem.

You'll probably have to ask Dave.

Twin subs / woofers are good. Much better than one.

Scott & I are in the preliminary stages of a FAST based on the new Mark Audio #6 woofer. FR of your choice. Lots of room for individual expression. Hardest part will be working out the passive XOs.

Well, that looks good to be honest.
But, with side-fireing subs isn't it hard to place them in a room?
One of them will stand next to an open door (left speaker) and the right one will stand in a corner. And in between those are a drawer (http://www.ikea.com/se/sv/catalog/products/20062596)
My room is far from perfect. And i can have them too far from the wall either. The front of the speaker can be around 60-70cm from the wall.

Cease dreaming. There ain´t none such beast as a perfect room. Just tailor your boxes to what you have. And, Dave,...an affordable passive Xover @100 - either impossible or weirdest trickery. Let´s rock.
