Well, "fast" bass is a bit of a misnomer. No bass is fast. It's bass -- the driver moves slowly.
Often, "slow" bass is caused by a mismatch between the woofer and the midrange and tweeter. See the article I've linked to.
Magnepan goes out of their way to extend the HF response of their woofer panels so that they meld in the crossover region.
Another issue is that dipole bass triggers fewer room modes than monopole bass. This means smoother response in real world rooms. You can do the same thing with sealed subs, but you need four of them to do it.
Open-baffle dipole bass systems using conventional drivers.
Quite a few different examples in usage nowadays.
My own system uses a variation of the Linkwitz Phoenix design.
You won't find "fast" bass response like this from any Magnepan. :)
So the 30.7FC with the conventional driver bass could potentially have faster bass ?
open baffles have their own set of problems
Yeah, Magnepans are open-baffles also. :)
As I said above, all speaker transducers have trade-offs....of one form or another.
I'm speaking from long experience here, as I've had both Magnepans and Linkwitz-style woofer schemes in my listening room.
that Linkwitz guy sure was good with the number figuring
