This circle should be a place for folks who are interested in, or build, or have heard, open baffle speakers. I am sure there is a good definition somewhere, but I figure if you build a speaker, and it it not enclosed in a box, then it is open baffle - this will include flat baffles, U baffles, H baffles, Z baffles, etc.
Hopefully, we will all work hard to share what we find, and respect that others hear and desire different results. It is important to remember that we are all speaking a second language here - the written word lacks all the inflection, and emotion of the spoken word, so often people will interpret things in ways that were not necessarily intended by the person who typed them. The use of emoticons works for some, other will bracket laughter to help folks know that they are kidding etc.
In any case, let's work to keep it clean and fun, while we share our passion for speakers, without the box!
I know that open baffle speakers are not a silver bullet, and there are many exceptional examples of other types of speakers that I enjoy, but I find that open baffle speakers are one excellent way to enjoy the reproduction of music.
I look forward to learning more about the configurations that folks come up with, the associated gear, how rooms interract differently with different configurations, and ultimately what different designs people end up with.
Objective information welcome, as is subjective reporting of experimentation, etc.
Be well all,
