I'm helping someone that wants to put a bookshelf sized speaker inside an entertainment center cabinet. It is a pretty old cabinet and the lower doors on each side at the bottom have glass panels that can be switched out for speaker cloth panels.

I know that is not a good space to put a speaker but that is where they want it. Suggestions on DIY designs that might be the least bad inside something like that? It has room for 15" high. Their usual listening volume level is quite low.

Hi, a couple come to mind. The current crop of Elacs. Quite nice sound for the $$. Also the couple years old Pioneers that ran about $125 each. I believe that Parts Express has a clone of them. All of these are two way types with as I recall 6.5 inch woofers. You can get a pretty decent bottom end with them. I can't recall if they are front or rear ported. You really ned ones with front ports or the bass resonse will be sucked up by the enclosure.

Good listening
Bruce

thanks for the suggestions.
They are doing DIY on them. I'm leaning towards the Zaph ZA5.2 in a sealed enclosure with it titled up inside the opening; he could add a small subwoofer later if needed. The Seas Loki was also recommended but it is the exact height of the opening so it couldn't be tilted back at all.

I'm thinking we'd do the reduced baffle step compensation on the zaph one with the placement, correct?
