Default 3D printable speakers

Found a this beautiful design; what do you think about these?

Nautilux by renaudchine - Thingiverse
Is the enclosure too small for a 4" full-range driver?



Then two transmission line or TQWP inspired;

HIFI Maze Speaker audio box by iiime - Thingiverse
3 inch Speaker Box by Landluger - Thingiverse


How much would the material impact sound, should they be made from wood filament or preferrably normal PLA for hardness?

Soundproofness of the material is important. It serves to separate the front and back emission, being the forward emission the useful one and the backwave the error one.
If the first enclosure- Nautilus- had a hole ( terminus) at the end then it would be a TQWP.

Thats's a nice looking cabinet but purpose is to attenuate back radiation, only a tapered chamber like the "Dagger" is needed. Stuffed with progressively denser fiber or glass wool, it measures just like an open baffle - not rear reflection artifacts.

You can also make a spiral tapered sealed TL like the Nautaloss quite easily with foam core. Printing a large snail like the one shown will take many days and may not be so easy as many machines have a hard time completing such a large job without clogging or tangling the feed.

The Nautaloss Ref Monitor

Actually I am not afraid of long prints. This would take around 2x11h + 4h.
If the nozzle clogs, just measure with the Z to find height where it failed and edit the G-code to start from there.
