Default Difference between G Chang and Sachiko?

Are these designs two approaches to the same end result, or are there performance differences as well? They both look great so right now I'm looking at them from a purely aesthetic point of view.

Nope, they've got different objects in mind, so which suits will depend on what you want. The former is for use with the higher Q 207 & is about a simple cabinet providing a large soundstage with decent smoothness & extension. The latter is a my nod to Olson & is a somewhat more complex high-gain design for use with the lower Q 206, so you'll get better subjective dynamics, with a little less smoothness.

If your main interest is the aesthetics, I'd go with the Chang box -it's an easier build & uses less material. Sachiko is more specifically targeted at those who want horns.

While we're at it, how does the Bruce BVR fit in? When describing these designs, do they favor certain music genres (to be specific which would fit classical and jazz best?) Im limiting it to 8" drivers.

TIA.

P.S. When you say "targeted at those who want horns", what are the attributes of a horn that a builder would want specifically?

It's an older design & harder to build. Has a touch of both; appeals to people who like the looks. They should all do OK on classical & jazz, depends on the presentation you want -bit of extra gain & dynamics, or smoother & more fluid.
