Default well...

an 8 inch driver in an 11 inch cube nice size agreed. A 10 inch XLS with a passive in 12 inch cube thats compact too. Two 12 inch units in a 14x14x17 inch box not much larger than your single 8 inch driver in a 12 inch cube. You would be pushing a whole lot more air with only a marginally larger foot print. So what is your point? If you want small and want to push more air run two SLS10's or two SLS8's either would be almost as small or smaller than your single eight Tannoy and both would outperform the Tannoy. Your choice, I was under the impression that you wanted more output in as small a cabinet as possible. Seems you have options that fit that bill nicely all of the sugeated drivers will get you substantial output to below 30 Hz.. Regards Moray James.

Default re :sub

you might look at a compound sub, two drivers face to face, very tight and half the needed cabnet volume compared to one driver.
The mcm plate amp is a good idea. you should get deep and tight, you do not have to pick one or the other. Very f,ing important, use no less than 1" mdf wood with tons of braces,
look at B & W or Theil and listen then go and listen to a thin box
and you will hear why. best of luck.

Default Good idea for hi Vas drivers...

the Vas of the Peerless drivers is not an issue with the "W" frame dipole cabinet. These cabinets would be smaller in overall size than you could achieve with conventional box loading even if you used isobarik and the nice part is that both driver outputs are used. With a "W' frame dipole the cabinet volume is so small you would need to build in volume to mount a plate amp or simply house it in a secondary cabinet away from the magnet assembly.
Isobarik is a rather expensive way to shrink a box volume as the second driver is sacrificed to do the shrinking but you don't get any output from it, as far as I can see it is soley for the purpose of modifying the (combined) driver parameters. A different driver would be a less expensive option. If you already owned hi Vas drivers and wanted to use them in as small a box volume as possible then it would be an option. Regards Moray James.

think i might look into this- the BK XLS200 MK2.

Click the image to open in full size.

uses a XLS10 in a 18L box, costs 300ish delivered, which if i diy'ed it, 90 for the XLS 10, 150 for the amp, that only saves me 60, when i factor in the wood, cables etc, i think i am better off just getting it already made!

what do u think?

I've look at that many a time and have to admit it's a hell of a bargain. In fact the vast majority of kit BK sell is very well priced.
