Default Help in building Celestion sl 6000 sub

Dear All,

I would like to build a Celestion sl 6000 sub woofer.

Has anybody built a sub on this principle?

If so what size was the baffle and how far apart were the baffles?

I have all the bits except the acbinet design, so any help would be gratefully received

Is this the dual woofers facing each other with a gap between?

If it is, there is no cabinet, the back and front of the drivers are exposed to the room.

I think the bass rolls off at 6db/octave and EQ has to be applied to bring the bass back up, much like a sealed box.
High Xmax and high Sd are necessary

Got my dipoles now but only 3 out of 4 speakers are working... I am happy to supply measurments if needed!

I am on the lookout for a replacement unit, or a repair.

Dimensions of such a cab isn't critical, so can be approximated close enough from this info:
