Default Suggestion for FF165WK enclosure needed

Hi, I still have some FF165WK and looking for a decent enclosure. Which enclosure do you guys would recommend or have successfully tested?

I am open for anything from bookshelf (e.g., fostex BR design, onken from planet10) to a floorstander, but the FHXL seems to have a too big footprint. Maybe something from the planet10 planset would fit, but could not find any current information what is in the set for the FF165WK.

Thanks!

I havenít dawn too many of these but the 13-17 litre enclosures for the Mark Audio A10.x/A12x will be retuned to accomodate the FF165wk. The Compact Fllorstander Zia posted is an example.

I've built two pairs of Bob Brines MLTLs for the FF165WKs. One for me and one for a friend who heard mine.

I heard it in the standard compact bass reflex enclosure that fostex sells for in japan and found it very nice, but would personally add a supertweeter as well.

I just checked my Mar-Ken10x planset: do you think a Mar-Ken10pTT-style enclosure will fit the FF165WK? I do like the aesthetics of this enclosure very much.

The "Ken" design has proven to be sufficiently flexible enough that with appropriate tuning, almost certainly. Indeed, such may already exist in one of the more extensive paid plan sets.

Looks like the FF165WK wants a slightly larger box, tuned a little higher than the 10p, to get a similar curve. I'm sure Dave can tweak the existing design.

All Tha A10p cabinets can be made to work with the FF165wk with appropriate changes in tuning (ie what Chris & Jeff said),
