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

Pioneer RM-05:


RCF Mytho 8 (nice to finally see high quality caps):


Yamaha HS7:

Yamaha HS8:

Dynadio BM6A Classic:

Fostex PM0.3dH:

HEDD Type 05:


And some Genelecs I found on the web:
8030A
Genelec 4020 inside.jpg

8351A

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.
