Deciding on a Cabinet format for a 2X10

I bought some Eminence 10' speakers for my Joyo Zombie to be used as a room amp or something small for rehearsing.

I cant decide on what cabinet format I want, 2 separate cabs, an angled cab, or just a straight 2X10.

Do any of you have some pics of DIY projects of certain styles or shapes.

Should be a fun project.

Have them put into a wedge cab (use your mind's eye, like a floor wedge PA monitor) so they project to where you need it and not your ankles. Maybe these guys? https://tonesonics.com/

I have a suggestion for you: build yourself a slanted 2x10 XF "crossfire" speaker cabinet using plans you can purchase from www.billfitzmaurice.com. I didn't build mine (I got it from a fellow member here) but I do like it and can attest to the science. It works to help me hear it from a short distance in front of the cab. Mine's closed back. More info here: https://billfitzmaurice.info/XFCabs.html
The pictured cab is mine.

I had a Blues Breaker cab made with a removable baffle to switch hit as a 2x10 or 1x12, plus enough head room inside to store a lunch box.

I suggest 2 separate cabs. It means that if you get another amp that only needs one 10" (and 8 Ohm) you can use that.
Put a different speaker in each so you can mix and match.
Speaker cabs not too deep (around 10"). Pine w baltic birch baffle.

My favorite cab of the 4 I have. Two of mine are 1x12 and two are 2x12, but it works for 10's as well...

Thanks guys for all the pics and suggestions. Think I'll settle on a 2X10 straight. When I start the build I'll post some pics.
