Thanks Sreten. I'm trying to imagine what You've wrote in Your first post. Language is still a little barrier for me. Could You please draw a simple sketch of what You think would be the best idea?
It would be much appreciated

Hi,

Its a cabinet with angled side walls around, e.g. with 45 degree walls,
a 200mm x 350mm front baffle and an overall depth of 100mm the
rear baffle would measure 400mm x 550mm. You can square off
the rear of the cabinet a little to reduce the rear size.

rgds, sreten.

@sreten,

Q. It might get a bit crowed in the box with the xo (which is somewhat large), if the xo is mounted elsewhere - how long can the 4 (each) wires be? E.G. could they be next to the amp and run 12' wires.

Tehtoril - I think your best bet is to move the port(s) to the bottom, you may have to use two smaller ports flanking each other.

I think that is it -

BTW - you could still use existing boxes with mods.

Are they the same as pic in post #13? (send a pic).

btw, looks like you can fit PVC ports behind dowel if you come up from the bottom (again post 13).

They're not as good looking as Yours, cause I haven't finished the visual side (guess I got too lazy after first listening test:] ).
Altough, they are fully assembled and 100% working :]
I'll try to make a pic and put it here after work.
But right now I'm in a middle of rebuilding my future apartment, so I already paid an advance to the best cabinet-carpenter in my country.
He's my guarantee, that it will be solid, fast and like-good-furniture-looking

Belt Sand and Formica them.

btw, you can make a slot port with the same volume/area of the existing port.
Make it the same volume of existing port - fill them with sand if you want to double check the volume.

The ploy here is the the slot can fit behind the woofer.
