Default a pair of chr-70's need a enclosure

I have 2 pair of Mark's CHR-70's I bought a while back, a off and on lurker, and I am now got the decks cleared to build them a enclosure. Any suggestions of what to build. I have a wood working shop so I have the tools and space to do these up.
I have not build enclosures before, well one set long ago. I was thinking something along the lines of Fonken, this size would fit well with where I want to use them, but open to any ideas anybody cares to through my way.
Cheers Ron

2 drivers per box?

MicroTower, Lotus^2, Bipole Metronome, Twin CHR-Ken(s), Wessex, Mercia.
Some i've missed. Others you could adapt.

or 1 per box? (4 boxes)

Cheers Ron.

Are they to be used in same system, and are size constraints a factor for either pair?

I have 2 workshops, one in a one car garage and one in the basement for when it is cold in the winter.
I have a parasound HCA 800 II in the basement and a Sony 55es in the garage.
Nad preamps for both.
I use a lot of handtools and get most of my listening time in the workshops. I listen to rock, blues and classical in that order but none of it really loud.
I do not have very good speakers at the present and want to build some with the drivers I got from Mark. I would like them to be not all that big so they can be well placed. Thank you for your interest, Ron

CGR CHR-Ken, CHR-Ken, or mCHR-Ken, would all for the bill.

Of the 3 listed, I'd suggest the wide version of CGR - an easier build than the CHR-Ken, and if you mount terminals on side, can easily be wall mounted resulting in surprising LF performance

i had a pair of these drivers recently and i agree that they can kick out a lot of bass for such a tiny thing. they do high end quite nicely too, but i felt because of the bass and high end performance the mid range was lost.

Thank you all for the input, the wide version of CGR sounds like a winner, now just a matter of making them.
Very nice forum here, love reading the threads, must be a world record in length for some of them. Cheers Ron.

I was very happy with the pair of CGR Ken's I built for my sister. Definitely on the easy side of builds as Chris said. The driver and box produce some solid bass after they warm up, but it took a few weeks of casual listening.
