Default Another advantage of IB

A random thought just occurred to me. Another advantage to the infinite baffle subwoofer is that when you want to upgrade your drivers you don't need to redesign or rebuild the enclosure.

There is a fun thread on the Cult of the Infinitely Baffled Site about the down side of IB subs

I'd just like to stick a data point in here. I've been over chez Panomaniac a couple times recently, to compare T-amps to tube amps, see how the digiamps like having a tube pre in front of them, comparo different DACs and stuff. He has an OB using the Selenium 15PW3 that has some of the best bass I ever heard. This is not a huge OB, and because he runs the 15 up to 600Hz he mounts it up at ear level, so it's not a maxed-out OB basswise, but the bass is far deeper than I expected, and the only bottom I've heard (except for a huge fronthorn) cleaner than a transmission line. Unbelievably natural sound on the bottom. I'm dreaming of an IB setup myself, or a hybrid OB that goes to the side walls of the room, something like that.

I've been seeing this for a few years now; guys making this box and that box, and usually just sticking a big woof in a half sheet to get it up, and going, 'OhMiGawd, this is the grail!', and never turning back.

There must be something here,

Poinz
