Thanks Rudolph,

while I was seeking information on these ripole designs, I've been reading MJK's papers, and Linkwitz's stuff ( what I could understand ).

I found a couple of year old thread, where you and Calvin contributed a very nice amount of illumination of the topic of Ripole subs, sizing, and T&S parameters, and filtering.

I wish I'd found it before commenting on this thread, most of my questions were answered there. I'm still a relative noob here, sometime the questions have been asked and answered already, but you have to sift through a whole lot of chatt to find the ore, and sometimes the EGO's can become burdensome.

BTW, and OT I cruised your website this evening, and w/ the translator program, and a shady rembrance of Two yrs. of German in HS 30ish years ago I'm getting the gist of it. I'm going to spend some more time there later.

Nice site, well done.

The photo in post #1 shows the ripole. This is a single driver N-profile.
The open slot is for the front. There is another opening at the back, about twice as big. The driver is inside this.
