Default Thinnest Depth Cabinet

So I have seen many P10 designs for cabinets around, And I was wondering what the thinnest cabinet you have designed is?

Being in Aus, there isn't many drivers around and getting MA Audio drivers local is easy.

Got a new computer desk made so want some slim (sub 140mm deep cabinets)

The issue with very thin cabinets and FR drivers such as any of Mark Fenlon's designs is distortion through the very light weight cones from reflections from the back wall.

Thinnest Depth Cabinet
The thinnest are some custom ceiling (Pluvia 7) and centre channel (Alpair 10x) for a fellow in Russia. As thin as 12 cm IIRC. Availabiliy of a custom design comes with the planet.

In theory they could be as thin as to have the magnet rest on th eback of the cabinet. But as Chris intimates getting a wall too close to the driver can be an issue.

A few of the standard A6x cabinets that are less than 14 cm deep. And the small CGR for the FF105wk.
