Addicted to Fun and Learning

On one hand I agree as I personally like the feel and idea of a strong enclosure. On the other hand I read an interview with Floyd Tool where he downplayed cabinet construction and bracing and talked about using lasers to measure the cabinet contributions amount other cabinet design banter.That was the Harbeth schtick. But think about it, why use such an uncontrolled, imprecise and inconsistent method when you can simply engineer away cabinet contribution and focus on using more precise transducers to yield whatever the desired sound is?
I had a pair of the JBL 3 series intro level studio monitors. The big 8" woofer set. No bracing, plastic front pannel, thin metal backside plate and darn they sounded good for the money ($200 a pair shipped from b&h BF) I did not keep them as they were not quite my jam but man they had a lot on offer for nearly no money and no $$ in cabinetry as I understand it.
