Default Manger open baffle

Hi Human,

Yes the Manger is 100% dipole over its whole bandwidth ( above 500Hz in this case) and yes according to everyone else including Daniela and Joseph Manger it should be sealed....
Try it in a box, any box, I did. Also in enclosures including teardrop shaped cast from solid cost no object etc etc and guess what....

Try it for yourself, trust your ears and then let all the " experts " ( or people who sell audio for a living ) explain why you are wrong and you actually need to spend $20,000 or more on their boxes, oily caps, foily ( sorry but I'm on a roll!) caps and solid unobtainium resistors...

The best thing about not selling audio gear for a living is you can tell the truth!

All the best

Derek.

it would be nice to know how the the nxt DML and BMR solutions compare to the manger thing. Cotswold Sound Systems which i think is based in UK has an interesting 4.5" BMR which is obtainable for sampling purpose

Thanks Gerrit!!!!

I haven't listened to these.. but I have tested them on a mic stand and there isn't anything like them... I'll trade low end extension any day for what they do dipole... horns IMO are not the solution...

It's mdf and all hand cut on my router table and all 100% designed by me...
