Changing the dimensions and keeping the volume the same will change the box resonances. If you build a cube you'll end up with only one box resonant frequency, but it'll be a BIG one! Some recommend keeping to the golden ratios, (1.618:1:0.618).
It seems to me that you may be better off building new ones and leaving your speakers as they are. The drivers aren't that expensive and if you do build new enclosures for your old drivers you may well end up with worse resonances! The speakers may also need changes to the crossovers.

Sorry for raining on your parade.

Default Only one way to know for sure.

Try it and see for yourself.
Changing the width or height of the front baffle will cause a change in frequency of the baffle step. Also known as cabinet diffraction loss. I can't explain it all to you. Go to:
