Default Single driver bliss!

Picked up some Tang Band 1772's a while back and finally got them into boxes, everything you heard about these is true! Good bass extension, smooth mids, and no need for a tweeter. I also noticed these sounded great right from the start without the usual break-in teething issues. Also you don't get the "listening to a whizzer" experience like I've had with other fullrangers. All in all the TB's have exceeded my expectations and I am enjoying playing all kinds of music through them.

Are they ported out the back or have any circuits on them?

Yes I built the boxes, they are braced 1inch particle board with Arborite burnished rosewood p-lam skin. Rear 4 inch vent close to the bottom, internal walls are damped with memory foam mattress pad. There is a pipe harmonic at 150hz which I was able to damp out with hollowfill stuffing but after careful listening all the stuffing was removed! The only drawback with rear venting is placement too close to the back wall degrades the bass. I use them about 16 inches from the back wall and they sound great.
All the materials for this project were recycled as they were destined for the scrap bin! One mans trash is another mans treasure! lol
The TB's need BSC for sure, I've been playing around with values and I let my dog make the final decision on that!
