Default Proposed half-sonotube speakers

I have a pair of 8" neo speakers I want to mount in individual lightweight cabs for use both with small guitar amp setups and for use as a very small portable PA. I'm thinking about getting a short length of Sonotube, cutting it in half lengthwise, and using that as back and sides, with a plywood front to mount the speakers and plywood top and bottom. I'd probably try to run some rough T/S parameters of the total volume and put in a port vs. leaving it as an infinite baffle. Any advice?

Actually, if I could find some CHEAP cabs that would work well I have too many projects already, so if you know of a source for small cabs for 1 X 8" speaker for less than $30 or so let me know.

the half sonotube is a good idea ,if you do a good job (stiff box) .Using a large and deep baffle would allow also a certain flaring .I think also half-half ST might be used reversed in front of the driver to make a horn
