Default Cabinets for Philips AD3800AM ?

Hello to you all!

Iíve been reading your stories as a guest for a long time but today I finally hit the subscribe button.
Why ? because I am on the verge of beginning a new project and Iíd like some advice.

First a small and brief introduction of me and my audio-background:
I used to play with big P.A. amplifiers and ditto speakers (used to??? o.k. Ė I still do),
I build several P.A cabinets (such like rear-loaded scoops and Keeleís W-horns), but for my home situation
Iíve always had standard, off-the-shelf, sort-of-like Ďhifií stuff.

Now for a few months, I own a 1964 Philips HF306/309 amplifier-kit, a pre-amp and two 10W monoblocks.
These are end-transformer-less, so theyíre driving 800ohm AD3800AM speakers.
For these speakers, I do not have the original cabinets so I mounted them in some old square boxes I had lying
around but the sound must get better than this.

So Iím looking for a nice design to put the AD3800AMís in !

Anyone got suggestions ?

Thanks in advance,


Philips Ad3800AM:
Alnico magnet, 6Watts, 800ohm, 72 Ė 18.000Hz, baffle opening 180mm
