I agree; but who would have guessed 10 years ago that foamcore would work as speaker material ?
And look at the amount of designs / speakers made out of foamcore nowadays !

3D printing is easy, and fairly cheap.
I want to try, tweak, and get a clear answer.
Because "nah it won't work, it's plastic" isn't enough for me ( no harsh feeling here, just saying )

I am not saying it won`t work.
It just won`t sound like wood.
That`s all.

I don't see a reason why it wouldn't work.
Like someone said earlier, you'd need to fill the enclosure with something heavy.
Sand and/or concrete comes to my mind.. unless you'll have some nasty cabinet resonances I fear

i made these the last 2 years and can say they sound better then ALL other wood cabinets i made (also hard to make an egg shape without CNC)

Also gives you soooo many options, right now im doing a transparent version with 72 ws2812b leds inside, like this very early 3" version in the video (crappy phone with "noise" canceling), but much cool as all diodes goes all around on the inside

Cool looking printed cabinets! "Filling enclosure with something heavy" isn't always the best solution. There are more clever ways to control the energy inside the cabinets. The most advanced method would be printing with 2 filaments, one hard and one soft in layers. Or print with 2 layers with a small gap between and poor a special polyurethane (cant remember the name of the product)between for constrained dampening.
I would also like to see a front and back loaded horn in printed cabinet tuned really high. That way it wouldn't be so big..
