Thumbs up Ultimate Open Baffle Gallery

From time to time I stumbled across really nice OB / Dipole designs. Usually I just put them in my favorites, but it may be really nice if we have an exhaustive list of OB systems out there.

Post your systems too! Pics and short description.

Let me start with this really nice implementation by Perfect8. No spouse frowning here

Recently the Emerald Physics CS2 became very famous. It's using 2x Eminence Alpha 15" and waveguide selenium per channel, crossed at 1kHz using Behringer DCX2496.

Iteration of my own system. Revolves around Vifa P13WH mid and tweeters, cheap woofers from Jaycar, and another pair I found on the side of the road

My first was very easy. Large room allows large baffle. Very satisfiying.

Attempt to have small OB in study room. Bass is very difficult.

Experimented with hybrid, u-frame, h-frame etc. Not too happy with the results and always removed within a day or two.

Decent version. Could live with it fine.

Latest/current version. Sufficient bass . Need paint
