As the title, a tablette sized diy build that I picked up on the Bay. Audax TW025M0 tweeter and SEAS 11F GX woofer. I assumed that what I could see at the end of the port was stuffing, but it's a right angled join. This means that the port tube goes in for 4 inches, then turns downwards for another 6. Any builders out there with advice/ info? Cheers in advance!

The idea isn’t unique; ATC speakers have very similar ports and the ATC50 has a port that goes through ninety degrees internally.

How do they sound?

A 10" port is quite long and will cause port resonance, but how that sounds subjectively, I haven't got a clue because I try and keep ports at a maximum of 6". (EDIT: IIRC the bend may reduce resonanses - may be worth a Google)

Make sure any stuffing is kept well away from the port, because even a small amount will stop it working properly.

Thanks for the replies. Photo attached (hopefully). They're in open space, so no wall reinforcement. They sound great depending on the recording!

Rcl The Small has a similar front angled port too.. me thinks the same woofer is in there too.
