Greets!

Unless it's near/at a wall or corner, it needs to be at least 36" wide/tall for 80 Hz, though it can be made with wings and folded back a little to slightly narrow it to the eye and smooth the blend to the room. Another trick to fool the eye and improve blending to the room is to make it tapered on one side where the mean is 36" at the midpoint of its height.

ok, having a think, instead of making a new enclosure, i could make a bass enclosure for ..
--one 8 Ohm 6 1/2" bass driver (on front)--
--two 4 Ohm 6 1/2 Bass drivers in paralel(on front)--
--one 8 Ohm 8" Bass driver (on the side)--
(could add a Passive Radiator aswell)

using the same width and depth of my standmounter and around 600mm tall. (it would be 20L in volume)

creating a 2 or 2.5 way with two enclosures with the FR125 crossing at around 80-100Hz

looking for mabye 40ish each for drivers (or 30 for the 4Ohm ones)

Don't know, I'm not set up to quickly reverse engineer to meet a specific size. FWIW, once you move away from a single FR125S and space is an issue, I recommend one of these bipole designs: http://www.planet10-hifi.com/boxes-CSS.html
