That looks great, to be sure, but it's way too deep. I don't know much about speaker design, but from building subs, I'd guess that I'd have to build a sealed design, and throw quite a bit of power at it to get the desired result. Is that a safe assumption?

Not necessarily, as you add drivers you generally gain efficiency and many line arrays are quite efficient at around 95+db.

If you like the slim tower look, check out the mythos series by definitive technology.

mythos

Might give you some more ideas.

Yes, those Mythos are definitely in the ball park of what I'm after.

Now, about DIY recipes? I'm not quite ready to design my own just yet...
