Scott eill have to chime in on what is really doable (and he is a bit scarce at the moment, being a Professor is eating into his diyA time)... you do need to keep the slot vent & it's horn the same.

I'd guess that if needed one might increase the width or depth of the main chamber, and shorten the box... that will thou throw off the driver offset.

I guess one could also rotate the slot vent so that it fires out the back, and hang the horn off the back, giving an L or J shaped cabinet.

Thanks Dave for your reply. I have not understood "....that will thou throw off the driver offset" this clearly, can you please enlighten?

I had/have a gut feeling that due shortened line lenth bass may suffer a bit, your opinion on this please.

I greatly appreciate your contribution to DIY community, thanks again. I await for words from scottmoose. I have built a pair of curvy chang and I love them. HC is for another room where space is a bit tight. Pls note I will be running Fe206e with 4 ohms series resistor.

The driver is very purposely placed a certain distance from the closed end of the box. Shifting it can cause some resonant peaks/ripple (as we found out the hard way with the 1st builds of thirlmere).

If I were in your situation, personally, I would do either:

(a) A BR a la Bob Brines (he designed one for that driver), or
(b) a folded TL where you go for greater depth to gain shorter height. If you've ever seen a diagram of Onur's Singular cab, he bends the top of the cab at 90 degrees, then does the same with the bottom. But that's a TL as opposed to MLTL, so it's more buik / longer line length overall but it shows the folding principle.
 
Hi

Pls do not misunderstand me, I gone through BR, MLTL, TL things many times. Even we (myself, my diybuddy) built Anur's signature once the design was out. Still the boxes are with my friends.

I tried OB and I like the sound. Due to limited space I have not tried CD/front horn. However I am a BLH/BVR, OB, CD/front horn guy.

I am feeling discouraged for shortened bib because Dave showing red flag reg resonant peaks due to shifting driver from closed end, specially fe 206e is peaky itself at certain frequencies.

Thank you for your suggestion I could do it should I not been gone through this rout.

Regards
