Those enclosures look extremely attractive to me! Both visually and as a project. Based on the looks only, I liked the Decca a little more, but the Baronet scored more WAF points in the survey. That hilarious "aggressive" and misleading marketing, picturing excited wife on each page of the manual seemed to work very well on my partner.

Now I gotta do some CAD work.

Regardless of which of the two designs I chose, how do I increase the volume? You mentioned the width to be expanded, is it the width only? Can I just upscale the whole model to achieve the ~6cu.ft volume while keeping all the proportions?

Thanks again you guys for taking your time.

Width only, otherwise you'll increase the horn's path-length, lowering tuning, not a good plan with a ~60 Hz Fs driver.

Loud is Beautiful if it's Clean! As always though, the usual disclaimers apply to this post's contents.

Maybe check out the Schmackshorn - designed to work with highish fs and apparently quite tolerant specs-wise. Not exactly small though!
