Long ago I had a pair of magnapan speakers- a roughly 4 1/2 x 2 1.2 flat diaphragm. I often wondered how this would work for a bass since it was capable of making a recording of an upright sound very real.. I played my beloved fender bass #852 through them and heard a sound that was far truer than what I got from a cone speaker, even a EV front loaded 18". I heard more fundamental and less sustain. A question- an upright has all this radiating area, front and back. How much does this contribute to the amplification of the string's fundamental, vs the actual string itself? Is it possible to compensate for the electric bass's shortcomings by simply using a huge speaker ( like a magnapan) of sorts to reproduce the fundamental?
