If you could design your own speakers, what features would they have?
I'd like speakers with sensors on them that automatically adjust to the room's acoustics.
What about speakers with an external crossover where you could easily change out caps without soldering to give your system a different sound depending on your mood. Call them, "snap caps."
I also think it would be neat to return to the days of the console with speakers, amp and CDP integrated into a single unit. No need to worry about ICs, PCs, separate components, etc. Use it as a TV rack.
Or how about no speakers at all? It's artwork hanging on the wall that looks like ribbons (mids and highs), but they are tied to in-wall base drivers.
