I think a 4" fullrange will never have enough xmax to be used in open baffle.

There has been a little experimentation, but not much. I think it's a good idea, if the right driver can be found.

I heard 2x 6" (tangband or fostex i think) and they were very nice at low to moderate SPL.

I'm sure a fullrange driver will have enough xmax to replace a tweeter...

>>> I think a 4" fullrange will never have enough xmax to be used in open baffle.

Several on this forum seem to be using 4" Fostex drivers on OB with success... i can't seem to cut the holes to mount the drivers for fear it just won't work but maybe i should just try it and see for myself. I have a pair of Fostex 127e and TB Bamboos but they are in use at the moment. I also want to try the 6" Fostex 165k and 168z on OB... but they work so nicely in BIBs and ported boxes... The Betsy 8" works well on OB but it's designed for that.

is the Qts of a driver the only parameter telling its suitability for OB?
otherwhise, does a driver need something special to be OB when you are using it over 200hz??

i remember Gainphile tried the TB bamboo on his blog and was disappointed on farfield listening, hopefully he will chime in.
everybody seem delighted by the FF85k which should be around 90db sensitivity.

Hi, I know of 2 different 3" drivers that have 3mm of one way xmax. Not a massive amount, but quite a bit for a 3" driver. I think these would give quite a bit of output from 1KHz+.

If we are talking 1khz and up, then yes, why not? (although not my cup of tea )
But I thought the idea was to go lower like 500-600hz.

500-600hz should not be a problem either...
