Speaker Baffles
« on: November 24, 2022, 06:35:51 AM »
I'm an avid woodworker and am building a set of speakers for a friend.  We haven't figured out whether they should be full range drivers or two ways with a cross-over yet.  My question is about baffles.  There seems to be two schools of thought on this with one side opting for internal wooden baffles, usually made out of 1/2" mdf and another school of thought opting for plastic and foam baffles which cover the rear of the driver/speaker to cancel out phasing. 

I will honestly admit my ignorance on this subject and wondering what the folks here who are smarter than me on the subject have to say about baffles and their design in the case of a single driver or dual driver speaker.

There's also sealed box enclosure, no baffles
Less efficient, especially if box is small

Dynakit split the difference and used acoustic insulation to dampen their ports, allowing for bigger opening(resonance) and restricted air passage
Good luck !
