After many iterations, the designers realized a nature-inspired "Bassforms' would save space without compromising on performance. Organic form follows function. In designing Bassforms, we decided to do whatever was necessary, however unconventional, to make the best form loudspeaker anyone had ever heard. Every component, from drive unit to cabinet enclosure, was re-invented. Every preconceived notion of what a speaker should be was challenged. The rulebook was torn up and re-written in the process of conceiving Bassforms.
