Default A problem with loudspeakers...

Why do have to be square? Besides ease of construction.

Sometimes they blend in nicely with your furnishings, but mostly I find they just don`t. Not to diminish the work people have done already, but why not something different? Just a peeve of mine.
Why not different designs?

check out the bottom of page 4 of this thread.
Not everyone makes square speakers. Usually it's just easier. Many manufacturers offer other shapes, i.e., B&W Nautilus, Uvola, etc. I kinda like the triangular shape of my bipole Voigts and the red color matches my pillows.

Default Just Today

*LOL*

HaHa Just today i was cleaning out a storage unit with my dad and i saw a little dresser i thought i could use it for the wood, i started looking at it thinking of tearing it apart for the wood when i had the idea of just using it as a subwoofer like it was. well i got it home and that's what i'm doing. I already started drilling the holes. I'm going to take the two drawers faces off and gule on a piece mdf so it looks like a dresser but realy is a subwoofer. it's around 2.5CF inside, not big but make a nice end table.
I'll have pics later.....Bob

How about a 1 cu.ft. sealed table/bookshelf/whatever? 6.5" driver and 12" tube.
