I would like to throw in a 3-Way design with some PHL drivers. It's not really small, but can be used as a "Bookshelf".
Drivers are the PHL B25-3002 10" Bass and the PHL X17-1240TWX Coax. The Bass needs just 39l volume and the Coax 7,5l. Frequency Range is from 40 - 20000 Hz. So, if you just need 60 Hz you can still reduce the volume for the Bass.
I don't think I have to mention something about the Quality of the PHL drivers.
The Coax is fantastic! It is a One-Point Source like a fullrange driver, without having the sweetspot of the fullrange.
The speaker were considered last year at Germany's DIY Speaker-Building exhibition as one of the best. The price for them are quite fair as well, at least in germany. 1.200,- € incl. parts for the crossover. Not cheap, but worth everey cent.
I assume they are still cheaper in the US-Market.
If you don't like the design, you can easily change it. As I said you do not need very much volume.
