Dual Anarchy 558 bookshelf speaker build- box size and porting?

Hi all,

a while back I did a sealed center channel speaker in the form of a sound bar above my tv. It's now time to do the L and R channel speakers. I have more flexibility as far as dimensions, so I was thinking of making a set of bookshelf speakers that are ported.

Any idea what size box I'd be looking at and port specs? These will be used with a subwoofer and driven by a denon x4400 which gives me the ability to throw a little eq at them if needed.

edit, i saw .5 cu ft tuned to 42 hz for what i assume is 1 woofer. What would a 42 hz port look like for these if I do a 1 cu ft box?


specs are here on post 30
