nrenter Posted April 17, 2022 Share Posted April 17, 2022 This is primarily a question for @Richard Vandersteen, but perhaps others can give their opinion beforehand... Do you think the Model 2 series would have been as successful without the sock? The sock (and the poles) give the Model 2 series (and the Model 3 series...and I guess we should throw in the 1 series) a physical presence and a certain aesthetic, but serves no aural purpose. It makes the speaker look bigger. It masks the uniqueness of the enclosure. It makes the lines look more visually similar to other box speaker offerings. But none of these factors change the sound. I'm not talking about offering exotic wood veneers, the addition of grills, or the option of automotive finishes. Just no sock, no poles, and MAYBE an extra coat of flat black paint. Just curious.
