Visaton B200 - What to do?

I stumbled upon a pair of new B200s recently , but I'm not sure what to do with them......?
BIB's will be HUGE, and I just don't know for sure about OBs...maybe, maybe not....My old speakers are a quite good set of regular BRs, so that's not really an option either........the highish Qt isn't exactly favourable....
Any ideas about design compromises? Any other suggestions? Anyone??? :confused:

Hi AuroraB,
...I just don't know for sure about OBs...
You can start with this easy and low cost open-baffle. (Some pictures found on the net, I don't remember where, sorry!)
I'm working with Visaton B200 and this open-baffle since two weeks. It is very, very instructive. You easily made many tries and understand how a speaker (really) works. Curves and math formula are not so instructive.

Hello,

i made a lot of positiv experience with the B200
for classic listener an superb driver.
I made a few satellite horns down to 100 Hz with 96-98 dB 1W1m
look my TRUMPET, HORN, SCHALMEI
a good sub is needed.

Or in my double horns with a second invers driver look my
SAXOPHON and the RDH20.

Most with feedback and measurements.
