Welcome to the Open Baffle circle
« on: 5 Apr 2017, 12:19 pm »
I'd like to very gratefully acknowledge the contribution of Mark (mcgsxr), who facilitated the Open Baffle circle for over ten years.

For the current period of time in which I am Facilitator, my goal is to encourage an open and "non-partisan" discussion of open baffle speakers. Please feel free to start and participate in threads that discuss all aspect of open baffle speakers, whether DIY or commercial. While I would particularly encourage technical discussion (construction, measurements, theory, etc), all discussion related to open baffle speakers is most welcome.

What is not welcome here is commercial activity/advertising, shilling, off-topic discussion, personal attacks and snipes, unhelpful bickering, and similar (see also links below). Thank you in advance for helping with this  :thumb:

Special note for anyone in the industry: you are welcome to post technical information that is not specifically related to your products here. However, please do so only if you are already have a circle OR have started a thread in Industry Introductions. If there is a discussion here about your products that you need to respond to, please direct posters to an appropriate thread in your circle or to your thread in Industry Introductions.

I’m Elton, a long time audiophile in Wisconsin.  I”m about to attempt to build a pair of open baffle speakers and I’m on here just trying to get as much useful information as possible.  I have partially built a relatively small single driver open baffle speaker before using a pair of baffles given to me and I have modified Magnapan mg 12’s with and construction help from the magnestand guy.  These have been my main speakers for a very long time now.  I’m hoping to build a pair of open baffles that give me the height and sound stage of the modded Maggie’s with a tad bit more clarity and dynamic impact.  I’m flying slightly blind at the moment as a friend gave me a base and brackets for a PAP type open baffle but I’m choosing my own drivers and building my own baffle and I have to figure out the crossover thing. Any greetings to all.
Elton

Hi guys and gals (are there any?) My name is Steve, from Hamilton, New Zealand. My current system does double duty for music and home theatre. All audio to the fronts (Magnepan 1.7's) runs through a Willsenton R8 tube amp which has just replaced a Hegel H190 (I wanted to reduce my investment in gear and try tubes for the first time - very pleased so far). But I have been wanting to scratch the open baffle itch for a while now, partly just because I like a project, but also because I'm genuinely curious - and hoping to build something with the air and soundstage of the Maggies (or better), but which is also easier to drive. Anyway, hopefully we'll be able to scratch that itch together  :thumb:

I built two GR Research Open Baffle W/Frame subs. I'm setting up the room using
Lyngdorf MP60 2.1 AV Processor with RoomPerfect room processing. The manuel says to contact the sub builder to determine the right delay for the subs. They are 126" from prime seating location. How many inches should I add to this measurement to enable the sub sound to arrive with the mains. The mains are 120". Usually 30 or 40" is added to the actual distance to enhance synronized arrival. RoomPerfect is amazing.
