Dipole Bass Array

Doubling the number of woofers provide further +6db of maximum output. Basically they are vertically-stacked W-Frame open baffle speakers. The arrangements allows the front baffles to be kept narrow.

Follow the discussion at LinkwitzLab forum here. There are some cosiderations that needs to be investigated carefully, for example the effect of gravity to cone acceleration.

Hi Gainphile,

Did you build one?

I would like to make one in a PVC tube using 8" or 10" driver (6 or 8).

Would like to try them with the magnets touching one another (cancelation of harmonics and vibrations)
