Need speakers that can rock with just one watt? You found da place.

RE: the open baffle for bass disease

As far as I can see, the "expert by self proclamation and publication," to whom, you bow, is merely parroting the design philosophy of B&W, whose many designers have come up with clever ways to maximize their custom moving coil driver performance in various sealed/ported box configurations, including their "Matrix" box stiffening methods, which are technically sound......no pun intended.

Then you use this unpublished parrot writing whose author did not withstand the peer reviewed aspect of the Audio Engineering Society as a basis to criticize something that has been BUILT successfully by others who have, obviously, a broader band of knowledge regarding all speaker types, including the B&W offerings, which are more space heater than loudspeakers with their limited dynamic range and flammability when a 30 db watt amplifier is employed in an attempt to derive a single acoustic watt of output without gross IM distortion or burning the house down.
