Interesting, Carlos. Just happened to be looking at a 1971 RadioShack catalog, and they were selling a line of economy speakers in which the shipping carton would double as a cardboard cabinet. So the cardboard idea has been around awhile. Your idea of prototyping a more complex folded-tube design that way is clever.

I wonder if you could actually get decent performance from a slightly 'heavier' cabinet assembled of inexpersive materials like that--more layers of cardboard, maybe, or two layers of cardboard glued to a styrofoam core....

I played around for a while with a very similar pair of JVC 4" fullrangers. They had a nice sound.

I knew a guy years ago in Connecticut who made cabinets from cardboard honeycomb (faced with cardboard on each face) that he overlayed with fiberglass and resin (could use carbon cloth I suppose) and then loaded it with a driver.

He was known as "Flite Cabinets" I think and they were amazingly light- perfect for the 'working' musician.

For a home stereo speaker (where you don't haul them around very much) I don't know the value of this method; however it would allow the DIY person to get some crazy shapes (sculpting compound curves) and have a rigid design when it is all done...
