Default TB W3-881SI, which cabinet?

I have these 3" speakers, some folks report excellent results with nanoTower and reportedly will work well with TABAQ.

I am looking for a bookshelf size for my smallish reading room. May have to supplement with a subwoofer later but I had another TB W3-593SF that were terrific in a fonken variant bookshelf and did not require a sub for my taste. Am interested in vocals and jazz in low to moderate SPL Can audio gurus here look at the attached data sheet and suggest a cabinet?, thanks

I have a set of the w3-881SI myself. I'll follow along. I could use a small bookshelf set for use with a t-amp. Hope someone chimes in with dims and sims.

Hi from
Bjorn
Bjorn, thanks very much for the attachment. For W3-881SI driver (I see pictured driver is different), I can use exact dimensions including the BSC circuit values?

FWIW, I worked up this mini-labyrinth some time ago. The ripple in the response indicated above ~300Hz will be overstated in practice; the folding & damping of the labyrinth are quite effective at attenuating the unwanted pipe harmonics. Damping can be juggled to suit, since different materials will have slightly different results. Ditto for amplifier output impedance.

1/2" thickness plywood?, experimentation with old shag carpet leftover as damping material sound reasonable?

smallish size is attractive for my small room.
