Default open baffle width?

I am going to make an O.B. line array using Ten 5" full range per channel. How wide should the baffle be? I don't expect any bass to speak of, but I don't want to screw it up either! Thanks for any responce.

Will you be using a tweeter(s)?
If not, you will get some bad comb filtering from those 5" drivers.

Search on this forum for the line array white paper.

No tweeters, I built some sealed enclosure'd array's using 17 4" full rangers with 25 3/4" tweeters each and the tweeters don't add much. I power tapered them and they image well. I would like to try some O.B. goodness this time.

Here is a useful chart:
For a fullrange line array I wouldn`t go beyond 3", maybe the Veravox 3 (30$ at Solen)?
