    EQ certainly, extra baffle step is required. Xmax depends on many factors including room size, musical preferences, and SPL requirements.

    Given EQ and gobs of Xmax, sure.

    Since you don't intend for the OBs to produce bass, which is good because they won't, you should use eights or tens in the OBs, which would have far superior midrange dispersion compared to fifteens.

    Planning on doing exactly that, but also with some bass augmentation from an additional pair of 15’s in ported 4.25 cubic foot cabinets. Those are built in the ends of a ‘60s Barzilay console. Lii F-15’s and and the ported cabinets will bi-amped, with SE tubes for the full-rangers.

    Before anyone is quick to judge though, there are some good reviews of the Lii F-15’s and the newer F-18’s as well. If you’re at all curious, dude, you could take a gander at glowinthedarkaudio or even decware - or the diyaudio full-range forum, dude.

    Sorry I asked here - carry on.

    BTW - the above picture is a Lii F-15 in the large decware baffle.

    I wouldn't consider it without seeing off-axis charts.Also, the suspension and Mms suggest a short xmax. Even a fifteen won't do much below 100Hz in a OB when it doesn't have a very long xmax.

    Lots of well-regarded full rangers are expensive. It's not an easy design to do right. But I think if I was doing it I'd use a TL enclosure to minimize the Xmax.

    At very low levels in the absence of deep bass this one might do OK on an open baffle. But once you add in the substantial EQ required for even vaguely flat response, deep bass will probably exceed its Xmax limit.
