At this size and smaller, there's little to be gained by venting, so might as well leave it sealed and use a bit of EQ to give it some of the Sony's no doubt very high Q 'rattle n' hum'.

Loud is Beautiful if it's Clean! As always though, the usual disclaimers apply to this post's contents.

Default more el70 in small box

just thought I'd share my build of css el70s in a small 7l box with a front slotted port ( 3/4" x 5 1/2" x 8"). they are breaking in now - have about 4 or5 hours on them from a JE labs simple 2a3. loving the low end - better than my attempt a few years back with some fostex.

I lined the cabs with some quilt batting, still need to finish the fronts....
I had planned on port in the back 2x8 abs, but was too cheap to spend the $$ on the right hole saw, so went with a slotted port, but it had to be on the front.
I also plan on some interesting wood veneer once I have the time to finish them up.
The speaker is very nice out of the box. so far nothing too honky or sharp sounding - sources have been lp and cd - miles davis, yo-yo ma silk road, little axe and various jazz, classical and alt stuff. they sound full and bigger than the look. great imaging!

amazing speaker - thanks css and Mark audio! thanks Dave at panet10 for the box designs/suggestions
