The JBL D130 has an Xmax of 0.76 mm (not 0.76 inches).  I've refered to it as the speaker with the non-existant Xmax.

But its nice to see more of a furniture spin on it.

Hey Buzz, you could easily hang a small LCD on the top section. Great use of the realestate. Smiley

Good morning Mr C.
Yes, I imagine so. This may sound odd, but I despise television. I do enjoy a movie now and then, but I haven't watched television for over a year now. I have better things to do with my time, and I could care less about what is on it and the views of the people who control it.

Thanks again for your great Open Baffle posts... patiently waiting for your bafle dimensions  :D

It has channels?  
I don't even own one of the things!  
My wife bought one a couple years ago to watch a training tape from work.  
I don't think she's turned it on since either...

That's what the box was designed for.  
One 15" driver.  
So I'm guessing the compression chamber should be closer to right for one.  
I really like what you did with the Audio Nirvanas in the sides tho, and am still scratching my head on whether to try implement something similar.  
And whether to build the rectangular version, or the corner version...

Buzz

Did you look at and reject the 12" Audio Nirvana's?  Fs = 33.5, Qts = .487, Vas = 10.3 cubic feet, Fs/Qts = 69
The 10" actually looks better for a horn loaded cabinet, Fs = 36, Qts = .286, Vas = 3.6 cubic feet, Fs/Qts = 126
but I would think the bigger speaker would do better - actually I'd prefer a 15" but they don't make them.

The thought is to put a single full range speaker in a standard Decware Imperial

Thinking out of the box, a person could use just a mid bass/ tweeter or maybe better just a full range (Fostex) outside of the main compression chamber mounted on a open baffle wing with another wing as a reflector? this would give a multitude of directivity options and tuning.. That could be worth a try!

I was thinking of doing just that.
(closer tuning than stuffing everything in the same BLH (back loaded horn))
Don't know exactally what to really expect for frequency response from Imperial, or how to design around it.  
Went through threads here, and other places.  

It looks like building a Klipsh horn would be a better sub, up to ~400 Hz, and slightly smaller footprint.  
And it's front loaded (more efficient).  

Not to sure about integration between the FLH or BLH and OBs though.  
And never really liked the sound of OBs that much.  
Sound too much like bose 901s-- reflected sound bouncing off the back and side walls.  

Project on hold...
