Follow-Up Listen: Magnepan DWM planar magnetic woofer panels

If you happen to enjoy dipole planar loudspeakers such as those offered by Magnepan, then you may have discovered that there is a fair amount of online discussion as to whether those loudspeaker do or do not make adequate bass—at least relative to dynamic driver-type loudspeakers. Opinions vary, and it becomes clear over time that one reason for those variances may be room shape and size.

Stated simply, some rooms (and mine, happily, is one of them) are proportioned such that they tend to a good job of supporting dipole bass, while other rooms might be typified as ‘dipole hostile’. In those rooms, no matter what positioning or placement tricks one might try, dipolar speakers just never seem to sound quite, with bass that is thin, anemic-sounding, and lacking in both depth and impact.
