Each driver set have their own slot, the exit of the slots should be rounded to reduce turbulence.
If you think about it, it matters, because the driver need to built pressure to force out the sound wave. The high pressure in the front and low pressure out the back reduce cancellation.

BTW-
Is noSmoking from a Dean Koonz noval?

Not really. These polar diagram simulations show (from left to right) a closed box, an open baffle and a Ripole.

I have seen this in Visaton page, and I like the design very much ! Especially the placement of the midrange line array idea.

The Visaton Grand Orgue is simply a stack of Ripoles with a short line array of FR speakers in front of it.

Very cool. To call the guy prolific would be an understatement.

I don't think he sleeps.
