I have got hold of a pair of W5-1611SAF - 5" Full Range TB-Speakers and my intent originally was to have a FH build with these. Datasheet can be had from here

I am looking for a bookshelf design to house these drivers as I already built FH using Markaudio CHR70 drivers.

Can someone suggest?

Thanks

I don't know anything about FH but check if the below link is of any use for this purpose.

Box size is up to you provided you keep the inside volume = what I specified + volume displaced by port + volume displaced by driver inside the box - though the last 2 are not very critical. It is said that the golden ratio used for box dimensions are the most effective in reducing standing waves.
