Many people use drivers with high Qts (>0.6) and small baffles. Even high-Qts drivers will only bring bass when the baffles are large enough. For a dipole-FAST concept with sealed/ported bass you are free to choose.

As long as we donīt know what kind of driver you mean (woofer, mid, treble) itīs hard to give any valid advice. Differences are too big between those regions IMHO.

FAST refers to fullrange speaker plus bass, usually with aubout 200Hz crossover. I didn`t realize this thread is in the "loudspeaker", not "fullrange" forum. You even see Lowthers, AERs and Fostexes in dipoles. The Prometheus, maybe the most successful dipole kit also has a low-Qts wideranger.
However, if you have the size for big OBs you will have an uncompressed bass you don`t get with boxes.
