Anyone heard these Italian crazy looking all open baffle speakers? How can they produce enough low bass?

I once heard Magnepan open baffle foil loudspeakers visiting a friend.

Bass was quite OK for this type of speaker.

Proposed him to put them into a wall with eq correction and get efficiency back.

But this won't work out cause you would have to put out some doors in order not to destroy the foil entering the room.....

The woofers appear to be in a tiny rear chamber, so high tuned in theory with some sort of sub harmonic synthesizer?

That was exactly my question. How can naked woofer without any baffle have bass? Not to mention hifi. Because if you eq, you get excessive cone movement with lots of distortion. That creates upper harmonics poluting midrange. Not good.
Naked woofers must have terrible cancellation below 100hz. Someone could simulate it.
Almost any open baffle bass has baffle. The bigger the better. Like that katana speaker ChrisABC posted. Or NoBox visaton.
