Default Picture gallery of large woofers, 15" +

I hear much praise of having one single 15" woofer as opposed to multiple smaller ones. However I struggle to design and draw a 15" or 18" for that matter in an enclosure that looks like like anything but a PA huge box.

So please post some pictures of pretty 15" + speakers used in a multiway with great aesthetic results, so we can all be inspired.

Okay some of these are smaller than 15", but no reason they couldn't scale up. Speaking of that, I don't really understand the problem. Is there a smaller speaker you like the looks of? What if it was bigger? Done.

This looks to be about a 60" diameter speaker. Not yet commercial, however, so aesthetics do suffer just a bit.

Here's another big non-PA speaker:
