Cool my first DIY... folded open bafflers coral beta 8

not sure but I think I seen these folded OB's on this site and figured I could copy them, though I don't even have a wood saw I had the home hardware cut the panels for me, bought a rotozip to cut the circles and predrilled pilots for the piano hinges... all in all they turned decently for my skillset I think!

not big bass (that's an understatement lol) but lovin the magical holographic clean sounds from these beautys!

nice set up you got there. I think the angle bracket makes the look, I like it !

Very nice! If you want deeper bass, remove one of the wings so the driver is off-set

Try to remove inners. I don't think that the bass will go deeper, the sound will become more transparent and dynamic. But it is easy and fun to try :-)

it doesn't matter Bolly. If you model an OB in the EDGE program you can see that if the driver is off-set on the baffle, the cancellation of the rear and front wave goes deeper so you get bass cancellation at a lower frequency.
