My OBs in post #130 has developed/degenerated into a hybrid system with OB mid/high and closed bass boxes.
Not that I donīt like dipole bass but i didnīt get it to work well in my small room, couldnīt place the speakers much more than 2 feet from the wall.
Open baffle works fairly well from ~150Hz and up thanks to a massive effort in "taming" the acoustics of the room, below that I use active bass absorption.

looking on ebay for an eminence woofer i stumbled upon their CX series

10" and 12" coaxial design (50-20khz) priced in the 50e

would it suit openbaffle use? cheap alternative to hawthornes?

I'm curious too.

I don't know if these are ultimate OBs (or whether it is the thread that is ultimate) but these baffles have sure been useful for testing drivers. Currently have a set of Omnes 8 and are in their Halloween outfit and in their "storage" spot
