Default Best 3" Voigt pipe plans?

Hey all...just picked up a set of Logitech "computer" speakers for next to nothing, and they have these neat 3" full range drivers with aluminum phase plugs. Not bad for $5 each. My plan is to junk the plastic cabinets and build a set of "real" enclosures for them, add BSC if necessary...basically see if I can get some decent sound out of these If I can't, oh well, I haven't lost much.

What would you guys recommend? I'm kinda looking at the Fostex FE87 recommend backhorn as a starting point, but English unit plans would help a lot What about Voigt pipes? I've got space for just about anything but open baffles

Thanks in advance.

That's exactly what I'm looking for, but there are no dimensions given, and the link doesn't work to the plans

I thought these speakers were big, is there a dimension measurement?
is there a way to find out if the tangband W3-871S would work?

thanks

6x6x29in (external). It'd be easy enough to investigate an ML TQWT like these using similar dimensions for the aforementioned drivers.

Now I have another thread to subscribe to.

Here or elsewhere I fielded a question about the noogies and
and the tangbands. This seems to be a fit for the Voigt pipe
question but I have no idea on how to do the measures.

What a guy (link to plastichead). He does glue-ups in his living room.

Ya gotta love it.

I tried some floor standing experiments with TB's using
PVC. After that I decided they belonged on the
desktop and so the Voigt/Noogi looks like a better
solution. It's better for the following reason: most
Voigts, while eclypsed by other designs for floor-standers,
are always described as 'forgiving' as far as a build goes.

At 30 inches or so and with the drive down a bit, it
puts the listening height pretty much in the zone for
desktop.

Not voight pipe but I used logitech 5300 speakers to make TB3 bipole by Salas. Really like them, small and easy to build. Search for TB3 in this forum.
