If space is a concern, then a traditional ported enclosure with a tube port produces the smallest total size. Complex shapes and multiple ports just takes up space. Selection of material can give an half an inch here or there. I found my 1.5L Fountek to be as big as I want on my desk, but they are a far way from 80Hz.

Everyone's needs differ. There is a lot of wasted space behind many monitors, so come creativity in L shaped boxes could make good use of that volume allowing a far better driver, or even the space for a crossover so you can go multi-way and get far better fidelity. DIY, so think outside the norm!

But with multi-way it gets more complicated, and probably more expensive... So I'd rather start with the tuning of a fullrange-speaker and then work myself up to two or more drivers.

cheers,

Hey folks,

so I was able to build the "Slim Classic GR dMar-Ken7.3 2v1".

And they look great! A very good design I have to admit. Now for the sound:

The sound is... very even, very balanced I'd say. The detail is good and they get very deep, but it's not as great as I'd hoped. Previously I used a pair of Monacor SPX-32M which really were a step up in detail from my previous cheap speakers. Of course the monacor only got down to a 100Hz or so.
But I expected a bigger step up in listening experience.

cheers,
hurtz

TABAQ has a small foot print. Place it "upside down" on your desk.

Default Combined TABAQ, just an idea

Just an idea, fold the TABAQ and build them together.
