    Would an Onken W work well with JE labs 414/32c type design?

    In a basement system- is this a combo worth trying?

    I'd build a sand filled Onken W and use 416's. On top BR boxes with 414z, 32c, 808-16a drivers.
    It would actively crossover between the two boxes. Tentatively at 300Hz

    I'm pretty well resolved to go this route. Would it be good to use two 414's per side or just one?

    I can’t help since I have zero experience with these cabinets, but it might be helpful if you explained why you are interested in going this route. What are your goals, what other systems do you like and why etc.

    I've been playing with gear for a while and Altec appears to be the final frontier. I'll move into a house with a basement soon and I'd like to experience the high resolution bass that some have said the Onken W delivers. I listen to many genres and have gotten into SET's. My bedroom system is Alan Eaton SET amps running Zu DW's or Klipsch Fortes.

    I have a bunch of gear that should pair well with big sensitive speakers including an early Decware Zen, FirstWatt SIT-3, Elekit 300B with Lundahls, a Threshold crossover... too much to list. Recently I've been accumulating the drivers. In my mind I'm picturing speaker cabinets modeled closely after Altec Monitors sitting on top of Onken W cabs that are styled to match. I want a unique system that looks and sounds beautiful

    Onken

    You can model it. An Onken W is 200+liters box with a port Sd about the same area as the speaker cone Tuning as I recall was 36 Hz.
