Default B200 in a OB with a added "twist". Ideas needed.

As the title suggest i got a pair of Visaton B200 wich i havent done anything fun with yet. After i´ve read through a few threads here, OB would be a nice thing to try. However, and here is the "twist" part. I also got a pair of Mangerdrivers ( wich i use as my main speakers in a closed 2 way configuration ).

Would´nt it be quite interresting to pair these two drivers in a OB and see what happens ? Sure, the Visatons can manage fine on their own, from what i have read, but still

So, where would be the most obvious place to start ? Dimensions ? Wings ? drawbacks ? Hit me with ideas A plexiglass baffle with aluminium base would make a quite spectacular futuristic speaker although cost may skyrocket.

Regards // Mattias

For huge baffles with wings rounded edges are advantageous (can easily done with ceiba bendable plywood). Would be fun to see where the ideal crossover point for a 6dB crossover is (kind of a fight between the Manger and the Visaton).

Hi,

The B200 sensistivity could be traded off for a smaller baffle with
the Mangars before c/o to the bass proper, but otherwise its
very hard to see them as a sensible combination.

rgds, sreten.

Hello,
if you made a measurement of the Manger
from the back, you won´t use it OB.
i made in the 90´s the BASSTUBA with MAnger.
If you couple the Manger with a B200
in a wide range you disturb the Step response,
look Basstuba measurements on my HP.

because of the data of the B200, it works best
in a BL lowmid Horn, no parts up to 98 dB, + sub
look my SCHALMEI, HORN, TRUMPET sat horns,
and in my double horns SAXOPHON, RDH20
+ invers 2nd driver
feedback, measurements
