Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Magnepan Tympanis interesting fact(?)

One interesting thing I heard about Mags is that the design works best if the space behind them is infinite.

Nonsense. They would lose some of their bass if the rear wave was totally lost. It is true, however, that large dipoles they need space behind them to breathe. The Rule of Thirds works very well for initial placement.

I've lived with dipoles for over forty years. Using measurements, I get the most neutral bass response with my big stats about eight feet out from the wall.
