Default help with RS 40-1354A speaker project

I have 2 new RadioShack 40-1354A speakers coming, but I need to build my first DIY with following restriction for this amateur woodworker.

1. need to drive them with Sonic T-amp (low power).
2. small foot print (Buschorn?)
3. non box design if possible.

would appreciate any help on this.

thanks,

gychang

The Hawaii 5.0 is a good bookshelf choice for the 40-1354

Perhaps Dave could clean up these old drawings and post them on his box plan library.

There are many to consider. Here's one...

I even think this driver sounds pretty good in a simple small sealed box mated to a sub.

Peace,

I'm not sure what you mean by 'non-boxy', but if you mean something that isn't rectangular, you could try Bob's ML TQWT: http://www.geocities.com/rbrines1/Pa...ight_Pipe.html
