Default Need a design for a tall narrow cabinet

I am looking for a speaker design that is tall and narrow. Height is not an issue - I just thought tall for volume - but I would love to find a design with a box about 8"X8" in length and width or less. Any ideas? Also, as far as a driver, I'd love to use a 6" - I used a pair of FE166E's on another speaker and really liked them - but am not committed to a size . Also price ~$200? Any ideas?
Thanks.

You could try Ron Clarke's Austin FE166E from www.fullrangedriver.com

About 8" across and 4'something" tall but possibly too deep for you.

I built a pair and was very impressed by the sound, although I haven't done a blind listening test with any benchmark equipment yet.

GM MLTL, Triangle Cross-Section design for the Jordan 92x on the Jordan site. Just made these about a month ago. Astonishing. Search the forum for opinions. Well worth the effort.

Is this what you are talking about? If so, this would be perfect for size. If not can you point me in the direction.
Thanks
