You may do better to post in the Multi-Way forum instead, since that seems to be the location for all things OB.

I have done what you describe using a pair of Mark Audio Alpair 7P. You will likely need a helper woofer of sorts if you expect any bass at all (unless you listen from less than a foot away). My own micro-OB speakers offer almost no bass at ~3 feet distance, despite using a 12dB BSC filter plus bass boost on my portable music player. The mids and highs are quite nice, however.

Hi needtubes. its really only a test.. I have the drivers already and they are low budget, but apparently near-field. I have plans for a cube enclosure and a 3ltr to test what sounds good and what doesn't. Thanks for the input :)
 
While an interesting conversation could be had over "best practices" shape of enclosure, I'd avoid a cube if you can for anything but maybe a sub woofer. .

As to the question re bracing on a panel that size / application - not likely of benefit, although some short tapered side wings could supply not only required support, but a certain amount of improved at the lowest frequencies you're likely to otherwise achieve (circa 400Hz?)
