Using 15mm material the dMar-Ken7 measures in at 245mm W x 221mm D x 354mm H - while the BR designs posted on Mark's site bracket those dimensions - some are wider, some shallower, some taller. To be fair, all are simpler to build than the MarKens, particularly the trapezoid versions.

I've noted before that I'm not particularly enamored of BR designs - several years ago we built a couple of pairs for purposes of direct comparison to resistive slot vented enclosures of nominally the same volume and tuning frequencies, so this isn't just supposition. I haven't heard any of the BR designs for this driver, but I'd bet my lunch on the performance characteristics. (OK, so it's a homemade vegan mock tuna sandwich on multigrain bread, so it wouldn't be much of a wager )

email me. It is part of a paid planset.

There is a free Classic Golden Ratio version here: Frugal-phile | Box Library / Mark Audio
