Default Looking for power and volume!

Amplification aside, I would like to start a side DIY speaker project that offers up some serious and simple grunt!

Ive heard these and something about this design made it a real heart pumping listening experience.
Krix experience sound - Home Entertainment - Product Detail - Neuphonix

They will mostly be used to play 60's-70's rock. And they will be punished in the volume debt. I don't have heeaaps of space so 12" cabinets are out.

Any suggestions?
100's of dollars preferably over 1000's.

I agree with what Paul says about paper drivers. You can't beat paper drivers for rock IMO.

If you do decide to build them, that woofer also works well in a sealed box (socks in the port would give you an idea, but totally sealing the port would be much better). I prefer the speed and definition of a good sealed design but others prefer the thump of a ported box.

Those Krix speakers look very similar the 'Elsinore' project,
check out the thread here:
The "Elsinore Project" Thread
(There are several iterations, you may have to check out Joe's web site for the latest)

Geebus! So many amazing designs. There's so much negativity surrounding speaker designs that are specially built for oomph!

The Elsinore doesn't seem to have a lot. Would this arguably be one of the most built DIY projects out there? I don't know, I'm sure it'd have a crack at that title.

The $2200 kit price on the Custom Analogue Audio page looks interesting...
