Default Modelling a semi-open-baffle in WinISD for use with a sealed-box woofer?

Though I'm going to be mucking around with my current projects for a while yet, I figure I ought to learn how to use WinISD. However, I think that I can figure it out on my own; it's only when you try to add things that the program wasn't designed for that things get messy.

Does anyone know how to model an open-baffle speaker in WinISD? I was thinking about building a pair of speakers with 2 HiVi B3Ss and two Silver Flute 8" woofers. (The result should give me decent sound from 20khz down to 40 hz.)

Open baffle stuff, however, is harder: I want to model something like this:

.

The end result would have a big box behind it at the bottom - the enclosure for the woofer.

Any thoughts?

Hi,

WinISD only models bass alignments, nothing else, at these
low frequencies the shape of the cabinet does not matter.

Try the "edge" for modelling open baffles.

The problem is that this is not a flat open baffle, so the EDGE is not of much use.
