Kanspi DIY Kit 8.

Fostex Kanspi DIY Kit 8.What is a Back-Loaded Horn?
FOSTEX BACK LOADED HORN
As above
; unlike the first three images on the left that display an enclosed speaker and both a front & rear ported speaker enclosure, a back load horn enclosure is designed to make a powerful bass sound by creating a trumpet or horn-like sound path inside the speaker box and gradually increasing the cross-sectional area toward the opening. 

By using the sound emitted behind the speaker unit (= parts that generate sound) (= inside the box) as it is, unlike a typical bass reflex speaker, you get better bass and also a stronger sound presence in general.
