Default Effects of extending the baffle

I am considering finishing my MK3s with a baffle that will make the speaker flush but also extend the baffle away from the speaker body. I like the look.

I have read that it is not ideal to have an abrupt transition at the baffle. Is there a rule or considerations if I do so.

Thanks

This is a unusual feature, also not looks good.
My preference are rounded corners, in second place wraped the cabinet with 5mm black felt (no wood vaneer or paint) both solutions also are to consider.

Some folks use a supra-baffle. Judging by the expertise of some that use them, I'd say you should be OK with one. I don't know about the entire baffle though.

Worth to mention the floating baffle as used by Dynaudio.

Central pair of this group shot is something I've done a few times now with small "supra-baffle" on FH3s - could certainly be applied to other narrow enclosures as well.

Panel on which driver is mounted is extended each side by thickness of one layer of material ( nominally 3/4" - 18mm), and is beveled at 45dg - if material is thick enough, a large radius can work as well, but I like the looks of bevel in this instance.

To allow for swapping of different size / shaped drivers, the removable baffle is attached with machine screws and threaded inserts, and sealed with closed cell foam tape.
