The snowman or egg-shaped box is not only very contemporary looking, it also allows the sound waves to radiate in an optimal way. The sound spreads in all directions, giving a mind-blowing sound experience. The inside of the speaker is ideal for eliminating standing waves due to its rough surface. This ribbon-like texture, an inevitable consequence of the production process, is perfect to mute the sound internally by scattering the sound waves.

Generally, large speaker cabinets suffer from internally generated vibrations caused by the “back wave” generated by the loudspeaker drivers. Those vibrations can often be felt while touching the speaker cabinet during playback. Even the smallest vibration magnified by a cabinet produces notes louder than the average acoustic output of the drivers themselves. These added notes muddy the sound and rob the music of it’s “live” quality. And this is why it has no caseing apparently.
