Dad just came home with some 22mm particle board. Was thinking maybe i could make a baffle for the EL70eN and try them open-baffle. Would that work? What size should the baffle be?

You can try it, it will really need a big, suitable, helper woofer for any bass. And be careful with the levels.

So you say it's not worth the effort and material to try mount them on a baffle?

I'd encourage you to build a proper plywood set of the yet to be released Mar-Kel70T.

Feel free to baffle mount the EL70eN to get a feel for what they do in the midrange. Unless the baffle is a monster you'll get little bass.

Just watch the distortion.

Well. The 22mm particle board i have is approximately 100x120cm (got two boards).
Would it be possible to just try the EL70eN in those? If so i was thinking of mounting them pretty close to the upper edge of the board, to not waste it all.

Download "edge" and play with it.

Home of the Edge

Donīt forget to check the box "open baffle".

Go ahead, it will fll in the lower midrange somewhat, you won't get bass. And will noload on the backof the driver, be careful with the volume control.

Ignoring the wood saving aspect, mounting the driver at a location based on the golden ratio is a good 1st guess.

I played around a bit in Edge but it seems like it's not worth it, couldn't get a somewhat flat curve.
Will save the boards for any future projects...

You got to imagine what edge gives you added to what the driver does without the baffle. Still no bass, but upper bass / low mids gain a lot.
