Um, I bet most of these are going to be open baffle designs.

I guess old BW4 speakers may be interesting to know, too.

Do you mean ready made, recognised designs or just how people have used them in their own designs, or all of the above and more?

Well, I haven't heard Magicos, but they all have LR4 acoustic xos. Likewise most Revel speakers. Take a look at reviews at Home Page | Stereophile.com

I've heard the Magico M3 recently. It's very nice. It sounds better than the S7 I heard recently. I've been wondering about why they're so very different. I actually suspected changes in crossover design. The M3 seems to be twice as easy on amps for properly doing higher octaves.

Alon Wolf told me they are all Elliptical filters. The meaning of that is still a mystery other than maybe it means they use identical valued capacitors on tweeter and the same but with inductors on woofers?

I like the JBL LSR32 as used in many recording studios.

^^Using steep lr4 with elliptic overlap makes it possible to get rid of a driver's nonlinearities eg. Cone resonance, narrowing dispersion and extreme excursion at low end. Likewise it means lower IMD.
