Default Hexagonal prisms loudspeakers anyone !!?

Was just playing round with a sub BB6 and it sortof changed my sub into a downfiring hexagonal prism. this in turn may lead me to redesign the Ht system and give it hexagonal prism boxes as well. Seems it would be nice for diffraction etc, but I would have to be a bit careful with internal waves and damping ??

How to do the centre channel? well I guess it does not have to be a perfect hexagon, the idea of angling back the mids would give a hexagonal effect from the front anyway, I hope !

Working on actual design sketches and calcs at the moment, anyone want me to post when done?. (all drivers purchased half price at MASS sell-out)

Drivers are
fronts: 2 x Vifa M13sg-09-16 + D26NC as mtm ebs cabinet 22L 55hZ

Centre: 2 x Vifa M13sg-09-16 + D26NC with mids angled back for extra dispersion then TC08 added as centre fill from approx 1k to 4k

Rears: Vifa m11WH-09-08 + D26nc

Sub; Vifa M30WO in 65L tuned to 32Hz, powered by Jaycar 150w sub amp.

All finished in a grey/pink mottled ply !!

For sure it can be nice design but it will be bad for internal standing waves. You have to be careful. I don't know how it can affect the diffraction.
