The designers are much more adventurous than in PA and can produce a sound that is way out in front of anything that comes out of black boxes. With electronics way out in front of acoustics I think more adventurous projects are needed to try and step up a gear or two in sound.
Since the start of these forums (this one and the other one) do you think that sound has progressed. There has been a lot of talk and writing and simulating. There are people still using and wanting to use cabs that were designed 30 years ago.
Perhaps we should dedicate a section called 'where do we go from here', and try to come up with a few solutions
Sorry to be off topic, but when I read what people write, it can start me thinking along unrelated lines sometimes.

Like my mentioning of aperiodic rear chambers, if that could ever be done, among other things. I posted a new post because I had said something that was partially wrong, and editing it would be sneaky.
Now, rethinking the classic scoop shape into different foldings...anybody up for an 18" double 'scoop' scoop? or a rear firing one with deflector to increase mouth size greatly?
