    How would that work out? use a 10 or 12" tube, vent in the back? or 14-16" vent in front. any non-vented alignments?
    seems like it would be easy to make. how long would the tube need to be?
     
  2. Doing so COMPLETELY changes the diffraction pattern. You'd need a lot of Xo tweaking toget it back to the original state.

    Jim,

    As Anthony alludes to, you'd need to change the crossover for optimal performance. We designed around a given baffle dimension/shape, and while small changes to that aren't a problem, large changes (such as moving to a round baffle) can be.

    HOWEVER, how about cutting a rectangular baffle, and sticking it across the end of a 12" diameter tube? This gives you the ease-of-construction I think you're heading for, but maintains the baffle dimensions.

    Venting can be run out the back without a problem; this does limit how close you can place them to a wall, however. Leave at least 6" between the vent and the rear wall in the situation.

    wow, thanks guys. quick response
    hmm. the rectangular baffle would make things easy. I was also thinking in terms of 'cool' factor. using all tubes to create an eventual Sono-System :)
    thanks for your time
