Default open baffle for alpair 12p

hi, I want to build a open baffle for my alpair 12p.

First of all, I just want to make sure to tell my requirements.

1- I have two stero subs and I would like my baffle to sit on them.
my subs are two feet high and 14x10 inch.

2- they cant be too large. ideally not larger then 25 inch

3- ideally they would have to go down to around 100 hertz IF possible

so, do you have any desing suggestions. the 12p are so new that there is not a lot of open baffle done with alpair 12. I dont trust myself at all to determine the exact dimensions.

Any help?

25 inch will give you around 130 Hz. For 100 Hz baffle should be 32x32 inch or more.

theoretically an option when trying for a smaller OB baffle could be EQ, but with drivers not designed with a high excursion and power handling tolerance, that could be "not optimal"
