I don't have "exploded views", but prosound.ixbt.com often opens monitors to get a look inside.

And some Genelecs I found on the web:

F-One subwoofer

Great to see that they still use toroidal transformers.

No real deconstructed photos, but here's a computer model of my Wharfedale Jade 5's:

What's interesting is the two pipes coming up from the base. This speaker has an "aperiodic" enclosure, in that instead of a port or transmission line, the base gets routed through the vents you see on the rear of the base, as well as where the enclosure meets the base.

Here is a closeup of mine:

I guess I'm a sucker from cool port designs, as I also own two other speakers that are transmission line.
