    ​Can you change it? I voted TMWW for all practical purposes. But, I have to agree with Chuck that a 6 foot tall WWMTMWW using 10" woofers would be a LOT of fun . And I'll have to agree ​with Joeybutts that having head room is never a bad thing ​. The irony is that... I imagine the full size WMTMW Statements outsell the TMWW mini-Statements by a large margin just based on build threads (maybe I'm wrong?), and WMTMW isn't fairing very well in the survey.

      That is weird, now that you mention it. Maybe we'll have to give this survey more time to simmer. So far, I'm really encouraged by the enthusiasm and opinions in the answers! I feel like it's been a while since people have shouted so enthusiastically their love for big speakers!
      Isn't it about time we started answering rhetorical questions?

        I built a WWMTMWW that was about 50" tall and man was that a fun speaker to rock out with. Some of you may have heard it in Iowa a couple years ago (4 RS180s per side). But I think my favorite personal design to date was my Trials with a single 12" sealed woofer bass bin per side topped with a 5.25" MTM. I demo'd those in Chicago the one and only year there wasn't a DIY Iowa.

              I really enjoyed the TMW with the 15 inch woofer and OB mid, after that everything seems to end up as TMWW, even the Synergy horn and the 2018 Indiyana coax. I still haven't figure out how to get any more 15 inch woofers past the wife... My 15 inch woofer speakers have been banned to the storage room.

                  I think this has a lot to do with what is easily available as a top-end choice. If you google best DIY speakers the Statements are going to come up; there are obviously other very good speaker out there but getting a kit, finding information, positive reviews and build threads for the Statements is so easy. I voted TMWW, but I am going to build the Statements II because I want the best sound I can get, even if its just a little better than the Mini's. I'm sure the designers made it for themselves for what would sound the best, not too concerned with which looked better to other people. (Which I think is how the Mini's came about, for all those people who DIDN'T want that huge WMTMW.)

                  It's also cool that Paul is asking, because whatever he puts out, people are going to want to try it, whether it is their favorite look or not. (I hate the look of offset tweeters, but understand the sound advantages.)

                    I'll let go of my 15" woofers when they take them from my cold, dead hands

                      I voted MTMWW. I'm a total noob so building one is way out of my scope right now but owning one would be cool. Trying to design that crossover and pick drivers would probably wreck me.

                        I voted tmw, a narrow baffle with a side firing woofer would make a more wife friendly design.

                          It's not on the list, but I'm fond of this particular MTMW. But it takes a real W to make it go!!!



                          The next tower in the planning stage will be a TMWW using a pair of 10" AE woofers in a sealed enclosure.
