SUG2-25 Coaxial Bookshelfs
$100 – $500
I built Tang Band’s recommended enclosure for this driver, called the SUG2-25.
I needed a nice set of bookshelf speakers to start my DIY 5.1 system in a new house. I have space limitations due to the amount of woodwork and built-in shelves / cabinets in the living room. My wife is particular about aesthetics so I needed a pretty driver and cabinet.
I really enjoy Tang Band drivers and I’ve always been super curious about the Tang Band W6-2313 6-1/2″ Coaxial Full-Range Woofer 264-9002. It was a natural fit for the space, look, and sound (on paper).
I used the recommended design from Tang Band, SUG2-25. Had to modify the port a bit to work with the Precision Port 3″ Flared Port Tube Kit 268-350 from PE, but it worked.
Very straightforward box build – solid 4/4 box with 8/4 baffle. I cut the curve in the baffle with a bandsaw and sanded out imperfections. Bracing per the documented design from Tang Band. Increasing port diameter meant I needed to increase length, too, which means I had to bend the port and use PVC parts w/ kit flares. Challenging but worth it.

Its beautiful aesthetically – everyone loves them. Sound is good, not great, but I do not have ideal placement figured out yet. Need to get some measurements ASAP.

Beautiful! Bravo on satisfying the WAF. That may be the single coolest looking driver I’ve ever seen!
Gotta love solid walnut… worth the money.

How did your build differ from Sug-25 (on tb website). Did you change the port? Crossover?
