I would suggest a front ported speaker or a sealed cabinet. Stay away from rear ports.

Von Schweikert VR-1s. I have them in a 12" deep bookshelf (not my idea, a compromise with the spouse) and the imaging and width of the soundscape is wonderful. There is a small "port" on the back described by Von Schweikert as pressure relief. It doesn't act as a port. I am very happy with them. $999.
Hi Eril, what about single driver" full range" systems like CarolinaAudio JSM [ jordan module ] , or Qmega Super3 and grande 6 [ fostex ], or bass reflex " minimonitor " from Common Sense Audio [ w/ fostex, lowther, or Audio Nirvana ], the purity of single driver systems is addictive and should be a very good match for the Cairns. Just a thought, good luck, there are a zillion choices! Thanks for reading, Alan
