Here ya go. Sorry for the dismal cell phone quality photo.

I'll be darned! Not what I was expecting...but glad to see that its a design I can handle! Very, very nice. And huge thanks for the photo! How 'bout some dimensions of those thangs. I mean, in inches...and how long are the legs. Yeah, those look pretty darn tipsy....but a third leg in the back would do the trick!

Have you tried them on the floor ?

You should get a little more bass (if you want it).

Hi,

Why try "making up" for an off the ground design with a "very large" baffle ?

You could do something with a piece of glass / acrlylic for the visual effect.

rgds, sreten.

I have some lovely Macassar Ebony and Birds eye maple that would look lovely together. May have to purchase a pair of the Betsy's.

I bet you can manage w/o a third leg if you extend the wing on the floor. A nicely curved design wouldn't be too difficult to contruct, would get a longer leg on the floor, and still be fairly esthetic/unobtrusive from the side.

Yeah, wow, hard to believe the builder is happy with the results. He should have asked you guys before he tried anything.

The OP certainly seems to be aware of what he was doing, but I guess that just isn't acceptable to some.

acrylic ain't cheap.

but I give points for not making an anorexic open baffle !!!!!!!!!!!

3'8" wide = 18" from front driver edge to back driver edge.
dip at 376hz, nice +3 to +6db hump at 180hz, then gradually tapering off.
That's a free bass boost.
Otherwise you'd boost those 6db adding extra excursion and more distortion.

I'm sure it is very pleasing to the ears compared to 10-12" wide speaker boxes without baffle step.

I had an open backed box with Sd = an 8".
It was 19" deep and seemed to go lower than I'd expect it too.

Hiya Norman. Interesting numbers and thanks for posting them. I've tried these in two different rooms and varying placement. They sound very different when making those changes. So, I'm not sure In which room or placement situation would match your theoretical freq. response.
