Default regarding bass - with no sub or added sub later

Im also looking for a Bookshelf design. Definitely need WAF. Tried BLH and Metronome ideas but she doesnt like to see speakers at all.

I love the Teresonic Magus look with a tapered cab but dont have 3-5K to spend , nor would I.
But I notice the miniOnken dimensions are close. Just would like the taper.
I think i saw a proto for a ufonkenset but not sure of dimensions.

Ill be running a t-amp until i build a tubelab simple se or buy a MP-301 mk2 (still deciding).

Is there a driver that would give satisfying bass in these dimensions with low power?
I.E. - 14-15"T, 11-12"D, 9"w front and approx 7.5"w in back.

BTW Im not a HT guy nor rock/metalhead. Folk Jazz, Blues, Horns
Thanks

uFonkenSET is 158x240x174 (wxhxd) (6 1/4 x 9 1/2 x 6 7/8)

there is a range of deciSize as well, 232x396x257 (wxhxd) (9 1/8 x 15 1/2 x 10 1/8)

There is one of the above for the FF125wk, which is not quite 90 dB. ODougbo has done the beta build of the rectangular version and seems to be over the moon, Chris is starting on the trapezoid variation.

New Fostex fullrangers are in at Madisound

Except for vent spacing (and driver cut-out details, and the accientil offset driver) will look like the dMar-Ken7T (2nd from left) in this family photo.

There will be one in between for the Alpair6.2p as well.

and larger ones as well;

The deciSize looks large enough to give some decent bass repsonse right?
The the 125's and the trapezoid, I might could further round the corners and that would be just what im looking for.
Will there be a plan posted on your Fonken page?

Yes... into the 60s at least.

As long as you take care to not much with vent length

There will be full plan-sets available for sale for a modest price.

Hi Dave. The Kens are gone! They were a gift for my sister and I just finally finished and delivered them! Only 4 months late. Otherwise I'd have loved to!

Default sensitivity and bookshelves...

Folks, I can say without a doubt that Mar-KeNs (Dave are the primes the deci size?) and CHR70eNs are not bass shy and have plenty of bass and efficiency to be driven by a Nuforce Icon (original version, 12 watt/ch ? IIRC), and thus I suppose a 41Hz amp6 as well (10 watts/ch? I can't remember....). Bass is not an issue. It isn't when I plug my DNA 0.5 deLuxe into them either...

I guess it all depends on how big a room is, how loud is loud, (my usual questions)...

Not your sisters, mine. The green ones.
