Components-forms do affect signal, sound? A response offer:

Some forum members think, after many years of practical work with HiFi, audio electronics, that e.g. designs of e.g. electrical parts (transistors, valves, resistors...) have an influence on the sound.
Outside of the discussion about the methods of the collection and evaluation of sound differences, I want to link a short film clip, which could - or can/does;-? - explain the influence physically:

Sound forms After leaving speaker's membrane, and this not true even( ...ever) because sound happens(=becomes such) in the brain.
The form of the membrane determines directivity, like more concave woofers in the midrange. A Dome tweeter might show phase problems between the apex and the base of the dome, that's the reason of some 'forms'(phase plugs) in front of it.
Have I've been too pedantic?!

Re: "Forgotten Scientist Who Dare To See Electric"

Charles Edward Rose Bruce, M.A., BSc. extended the physics in his 1941 paper "The Lightning Discharge" towards explaining cosmological phenomena:

His electrical models of the Sun, novae, nebulae and galaxies are based on electrical discharges in plasma, and have little direct relevance to everyday audio.

The closest audio association with Bruce's work would be the plasma tweeter:
