Default A10.2 pencil modification, possible?

I was wondering if it possible to make the design maybe taller but not that deep. I would be very happy if you can shrink it to 10-12". Maybe even with slight loss of performance... Thanks!

You can only make it taller by adding "stands". Width and depth can be modified but WxD = cross-section needs to remain the same. Vent area needs to remain the same.

My idea was to decrease depth. I would like to make a footprint smaller. Dave, I know that the pencil is probably the best design of this type, but maybe you can suggest any MLTL with a smaller footprint?

You can't change the footprint of the Pensil. Brines' ML-TL has a smaller footprint and is taller.

Thanks for the explanation as usual! I understand now. I will play with WxD=counts and see what will fit my room!

I recommend Bob's mltl if smaller footprint is needed. Looks and sounds great had bother making the supra baffle though was not happy with it just did not look right. Have a good pattern to work from now.
