    I stumbled upon this website that sells 0.375" thick fiberboard tubing in a variety of shapes. Although the baffle cutouts would be more demanding, some of these look fairly interesting. The 'D' shape would be interesting for amp mounting.

    I don't think they would work. You get ride of the cylinder shape and you destoy what makes a cylinder strong. The material would have to be thicker than 0.375" and you would need to brace it just like a box.

    The triangle or quarter cirlce would be interesting for stuffing it right into the corner of your room. You could stack them and have a seemless "tower of power".
