Ted Jordan uses a 30cm baffle for his VTL with the driver at 15cms from top and sides. I simulated the baffle response with Soundeasy and found that apart from extending the baffle response to about 200hz this also provide what you call in UK BBC dip around 3K. With a 30 X 40 baffle i get aprox. the same.

A narrower baffle moves the dip upwards and bring the mids forward.

I also agree Ted Jordan's opinion about the resonant behaviour of deep enclosures, as explained somewhere in his web.

I live in Barcelona.

Very interesting stuff on Ted Jordan. I made my cabinets deep so there was less back reflection, which allows me to not stuff the cabinet with anything - for some reason I don't like the sound of the usual damping materials.

Damping materials and full rangers are not good friends.
