That said the largest of the group (Folded Voigt) is by far my favorite sounding of the bunch - surprising good for what they are.
Are you saying you could substitute a Veravox 3X in there?

I didn't see instructions for damping material. Do you put a lining like the denim material along the inside then fill it with polyfill or lamb wool?

Today, after yoir post, the BR/ML-TL was choosen. The foldedfencepost was deemed best (they only had the small onesto evaluate) but deemed too big.

No. He is saying that we have designed boxes along the lines of the'Ken Lite for literally dozens of drivers.

Thanks a lot Dave for sharing these wonderful designs.
Are you going to publish any RTA measurements?

Can you give me rough estimation about the expected bass output of these designs.

Fenceposts est F3 ~75, f10 ~65

Hybrid est F3 ~80, f10 ~70

'Ken about the same as above

Voigt can't find the sims for this (if Scott ever sent me some), i would expect the most extended.

It is a 3". Whether a sub is needed depends on how much bass you expect, and how loud. It should have an edge on things like Tabaq & Cybord Needle.
