After determining Fc (the freqency of the first order HP filter imposed by the baffle) one can take a chosen driver and (with a sealed box calculator (put the driver in an infinite baffle)), add the filter and thus approximate the system response.................

space/1=in a tree
space/2=on the ground
space/4=on the ground near a wall
space/8=on the ground near a corner

height and width are the dimensions of a rectangular baffle
diameter is the diameter of a circle with the same area as the rectangle.................

The baffle can't just be converted to a round surface of uniform radius. The long axis will support lower freqs than the short axis etc.... __________________ If it sounds good... it is good!

Intuitively I agree. However I have gleaned this approach from people who's knowledge I trust. Also it seems to be (empirically)
usable (within limits). A safer method would perhaps be to use the shortest dimension only (but perhaps too safe). This is in fact the same formula used to size the mouth of a horn. Obviously a mouth 1' x 9' is not going to act like a mouth 3' x 3', but perhaps if the ratio is kept reasonable all is well...........
