Sure thing.

Just to answer the original question again: I have never heard the typical boxy sound from an Onken cabinet. Not 15, 12, 10 inch or smaller drivers. Not sure about more open, but the lack of a boxy sound is nice.

Made some of those in my time; 8" for 1/4 scale, 6" for 1/8 scale. An Altec A2 was the first and best performing one I did which was pure blind luck as I didn't have a clue about any speaker design beyond sticking a driver in a closed box or mounted on a baffle.

No, I never took pics of anything I did except for a few scratch built models I entered in contests and even these didn't survive for various reasons. Any speakers I made other than a large horn system were all either given away as gifts/whatever or traded as barter for other stuff till the taxman put a stop to it.

You would have to have lived within easy driving distance of Atlanta. The few I made 'pretty' were really nice though; I come from two families of various trades of master craftsmen [and women] and they all wanted to teach me something.

Here's an antebellum home I helped/apprenticed restore/upgrade during my 10th Summer, the Mayor's Mansion, living/learning all things required with one of my aunts and uncles. My only so called free time was for reading the entire National Geographic library from the first issue to date before Summer's end since 'idle hands were the Devil's tools'. We didn't do it all in a Summer of course, I was only there for a lot of finish work, learning how to make plaster moulding, myriad types of finishing, etc., plus plenty of 'strong back/weak mind' labor as they were getting on up in years.

This grand home has changed a lot since being built in the 1850s. Originally an Italianate style (very popular at the time), it was remodeled to it’s current look in 1906-07. This home was home to Mayor John B. Felder, and his wife Lucy – interestingly, he served as mayor of Americus for 20 years!

edit for Sumotan : go for a mini Tanoy look with the mini GM's VoT, call it SumoToy, thin walls (19 mm mdf) ā la Harbeth monitor 40 which has n brassing but an horizontal piece of squarred wood between the two sides. And theorically and with luck the box will sing lower than 400 Hz. I have no idea though if the group delay in the low which will be higher in frequency (if I understand) than an Onken which is going lower in bass. But maybe you can not hear it, use a sub with embeded electronic XO for the two first octaves to avoid to spent all your retirment at tunning the bass
then if lucky ā la GM, just enjoy

Wow those are really nice houses GM. Since your also skilled in houses me have an OT question for you. Over here our houses are brick & mortar, my house have crack lines on the exterior walls which was repaired thrice & still the crack lines appears at the same areas.
What is the cause GM , oh & what about bubbling paint on interior wall, is it the sand quality use in the cement etc ?

Many thanks again
