Fastbike: Don't take the criticism personally. Every diy project is met with skepticism by some. If these sounded like Donkey dung, I would have documented such. However, as many "rules" as these break, they sound magical to the five sets of audiophile ears that have now heard them.

Trust me, it doesn't bother me, particularly when the commenter "seems to not be aware" of the point of my comment.

You have clearly understood the point. To often folks forget about the music. My personal thought is that if the speakers can't make you forget about "critical listening" and draw you into the music, they're not "working".

Let's be constuctive... Fasbike, you can use the EDGE calculator to check the efects of offset-mounting drivers on baffles, and how lifting them off the floor affects the bass response.

I agree. Definitely run the numbers. EDGE is a useful tool.

And to Nicoch58: Since you indicated you are here to learn, which I intrepret as a solicitation for expanding your knowledge concerning all things open baffle, I will give the following advice:

What I have found "constructive", and the greatest way to learn about real life baffle acoustics, is by building test baffles. It's about the simplest diy audio project one can tackle. Since the room size, room acoustics and placement of the baffle within the room play a MAJOR role in the sonics of an open baffle, make a few of various sizes out of the cheapest sheet goods you can find.

Saw them in various different shapes, sizes and cut your holes, varying offset to test that too. You can even cut them in the center to start, then cover up the center hole and put one off center, covering the other with thin wood stock. Then, use cinder blocks, a chair, dumbells, small children, etc. to prop them up.

Try them in various places in your listening room. Then, another room in the house. Close to the back wall, far away, different listening positions, close together, close to the side walls, etc. This is good, constructive learning in addition to using Edge. I guarantee you'll have learned a lot about open baffles after doing this.

Sorry if my suggestions offended you. Perhaps they will be useful to a younger, new to the hobby audiophile.

So these are a 38" square, lifted 18" off the ground? Those legs look shorter than 18" to me. And there is no baffle correction of any kind? I am going to try to make these...but I just want the dimensions correct!
