Zigmahornet is just a quarter of a wavelenght long and straight. My old Zigmahornet measures 150cm in height and has a Fostex FE103Z. The inner width is 10cm and depth 8cm. These were made in the 80's I believe. The "port" measures 10cm x 4 cm.

To get the quarterlenght you use this formula:
33130/fs*0.25

example for a driver with 70Hz:

33130/70*0,25= 118,3cm

For the start of the pipe you use the same area as the cone and the "mouth" the coneareax3

There are lots of stuff about this on this forum. Use the searchfunction.

The Zigmahornets have very little speaker design in them, their only asset is aesthetic.

It was the first speaker that I made, mainly to check if I was handyenough and also beause they look rather pleasing. For ease of cosntruction I kept the top flat however.
The speaker was interesting, was convincing for acoustical music, but it also convinced me that 10cm speakers do offer not solid enough bass for me.

Do you have driver model numbers or can you post a pic?

There are some other slim floor standers like the Needle and Tabaq.

W2 series is 2" - very small.

W4-654S is mid-range, not full-range. So you need to use in multi-way design.

You can try this driver maybe:

Anmelden - Lautsprecher Selbstbau by blue planet acoustic

A project for this can be:

TABAQ TL for Tang Band

This is the folded version of the Tabaq making it around 44cm in height; original version is taller and less deep.
