It looks like a fascinating speaker V-bro. Where does the bass come from?

I've heard some open baffles now, courtesy of the UK DIY Audio meet. The bass was extremely precise on both of the ones I heard. I'm not sure it's exactly my cup of tea though, I like to feel the bass a bit more than that I think. The door is open to more investigation though.

Bass comes from two very old JBL 2220A drivers. It was not a thought through choice at the time, they were merely offered to me cheap.

Turned out they are very very suitable and special too!

They have a sensitivity of ~98 db and the ESLs are ~84db. The sensitivity will be lost for a bit from the open system, but the crossover freq. makes it possible to use a relatively simple lowpass filter. (the lower the freq the higher the loss with OB, with higher x-over freq. you would need bass boost...)

The bass punches like mad on my OB's! No thumpyness, just massive punch!

I think ANY professional driver with large size (like mine, they're 15") can be suitable...

The ESL can be replaced by a dynamic fullrange driver as well....(probably easier to get by and cheaper...) Just make sure if you're a basslover that the bassdriver has the sensitivity benefit. And four amp channels (two stereo poweramps...) are a must! (otherwise it can be a hek of a job to match the system...)

Terrific, sounds like you've really nailed a great system. What loading do the JBL bass drivers have? Are they also OB?

Thanks, yes the woofers are certainly in OB. I wouldn't want nothing else no more!

Default First attempt at building loudspeakers

I just completed my first and probably last attempt at building a pair of loudspeakers. The results are simply remarkable from a stand point of sound quality. I had been listening to for several years a beautiful pair of Legacy Focus, but just got the ictch to build a set. I was lucky and found Phil Bamberg at bamberglab.com and with his help built this beautiful set of Sereis 5 MTM and the matching Dual XLS Subwoofers. I'm not a reviewer so I won't attempt that here, all I can say is that they blow away every speaker I had in my system, Their that good! I'm driving them with a pair of Pass Lab Aleph 1.2 clones that I built about two years ago. Well I can't attach the picture it say it's to big?
