Phil, a guy can only afford to build so many enclosures with the same driver* -or space to store them - but if I can extrapolate on my experience with FH3 and Pensils with A7 and MAOP7, I'd reiterate my above post.

Which of course doesn't answer your question.

*actually, Dave or Bernie may well have a pair of Pensil10s kicking around, as well as the Brines M10A10 pipes.

Thanks Chris,

Yes, footprint is a constraint and really look forward to building the 10.3.

...currently working on a 10P bookshelf pair and using .5" bb ply as "substrate" clad in .5" solid mezquite and trying to figure out turquoise stone inlay for knots and cracks....my practice on mesquite scraps isn't going real well but we'll see.....

Mario

Default FF165 floorstanders

Although it'll be awhile before these are completed I thought I'd post a picture anyways. I built these with the port bottom firing and towards the front for something a little different. The baffle is solid 1 1/2" mahogany with 3/4" solid top the rest is MDX plywood ( 3 interior ply's of wood outer ply's of mdf )
Not sure why the picture got rotated but maybe Dave can fix?

Ooh, I very much like the form factor. What would this cabinet style be called? ML-TQWT?

A vented box, but as with all our miniOnkens, a high aspect ratio vent to push the response towards aperiodic. With these we actually take measures to counter the 1/4 wave response.

@ Hobbers, very nice!

Is the internal cut out rebated for the driver, almost looks like a knife edge!?

I suppose the quarter wave would be over 100hz wouldn't it? If it sounds as good as it looks, it'll be one great design regardless.
