Nelson: I'll have enough place for "more serious" enclosure (that is, bigger) than a bookshelf. Does your TQWT project has a name?

That Abby speaker looks really nice.
Does anyone know how it looks inside.
Is there a folded horn or does the enclosure
work as a horn by its one shape?
Those speakers would be a nice little project to make.
They would look great connected to a set of Zen Amps.

It's not a horn:

As explain in the above site, this kind of speaker require "baffle step compensation", in order to cope with a little bass attenuation under 300Hz.
While Martin King chose to do it with electronics, Cain&Cain chose to do it physically. That's just my guess...

The Abby is a TQWT. A friend is getting a set (he fell in love with some 45s and needed more efficient speakers), so i'll get a chance to get a good listen.

Most boxes need baffle-step compensation of one type or another.
