Default Re: Punchy bass

Indeed. Going back to Heybrook days it was never easy to get deep bass out of HB1s or HB3s, both of which used relatively large paper bass units like the WD25s, albeit in IB enclosures, and were designed to be used against the wall. The exception to the rule was Peter's first design, the HB2. This had a Bextrene bass unit with a resistive rear-firing port. It was intended to be used about six inches from the wall, and produced a bass performance out of all proportion to its size.
