I may have the Thiele / Small parameters for the relevant bass driver somewhere.

Unless our learned friend boyzo has already worked out the ideal size for the cabinet I am willing to do it for you.
But in my own time as and when available.
I will need the parameters... Smile

Well for a sealed box 100 - 150 liters
for a vented probably 200 liters

I dont have VAS an Qt at hand for the B300

It depends on how low you want to go in trems of F3

I think 200 liters vented would shake the house Wink

Hi Boyzo, How big a box do I need ?, I am in the midst of making a new box since the old box is "Old" and some section had water damaged or to be more precise has "milk damage".. on second thought maybe I should wait for the kids to get out of the house and then make a new box Smile

The thing with the 105 was its so called 3rd order bass Alignment a combination of an underdamped 2nd order sealed box in combination with a series capacitor to give a so called optimally damped 3order box.

Here I think here KEF had a blind spot.

The B300 can perform but only in a large box sealed / reflex but not in the the 105 box.

Sealed 100 - 130 liters vented 200 liters tuned to 23 hz but you need to measure the actual VAS of the B300 as KEF's date is a static VAs not a Thiel Small VAS
