What about mylar with a complete ribbon slapped on it? Would that provide the dampening you spoke of?

no

you can still use the multi trace plastic and short all the traces together at the ends to get your low ohm

Apogee used a foil only 2 inch wide BUT its crossd over at about 3 Khz or lower to a 1/2 inch wide FO so it avoids the issue

But you said 2 inch wide is best for low frequencies right?

yes the 2 inch is better to go low but a 1 in will work too. The 1 inch requires you to get the gaps a little smaller and is therefore a bit harder to construct.

the last pr I built were 2 inch wide and only 30 inches long. They were in baffles 34 inches wide by about 38 inches tall. They played well down to 100 hz crossed to sub. But not to levels of a full floor to ceiling line

Also the short "line" of only 30 inches I dont like all that much as the vertical directivity makes a very small listening window.

Ah. Analysis Paralysis. As people are telling you constantly, start building something and "see what happens". This is a DIY site, after all, and most people here learn by using their hands.

You're trying to get someone to build you a "step 1, step 2, step 3" guide. I'm surprised you've gotten this far. I tried that before and just got ignored and shortly figured out why - it's a disservice to those trying to help as they started with their hands and then asked for help along the way.
