Default Suspended Box design idea!

Here is a new design i just thought of using 2 tempests and 4 pr.

It is basically a cube with a driver or pr on every face.

It is suspended from a corner by a frame or cradle using heavy springs or rope.

I don't know if this has allready been done but i thought it migh be an interesting way of doing things.

just wanted everybodys thoughts on this, before i set out to try it, (if i can scrounge up enough money)

Suspending it near a corner would work. If you put it in the middle of a room, you would have no bass.

One thing though. The late, great Paul Klipsch, (of Klipschorn fame), put an acoustic supsension enclosure in a corner on the floor, and then lifted above the floor just a couple of inches. Believe it or not, just lifting the enclosure a couple of inches off the floor actually lessened the bass output somewhat.

Of course, a corner increases the bass output considerably.
