I agree about measurements, but I don't think it is that complicated. I think that the designers of a certain German DSP-based speaker (that some people are sick of hearing about!) have approached the problem in full knowledge of what they were doing, and their relatively simple design just works. It wasn't put together by trial and error, and lots of listening, or even lots of measurements. It was, instead, based on predictions of the simple physics of driver dimensions, baffle sizes, and the role of DSP as 'glue'. I rather expect that their first prototype sounded better than 95% of all other 'high end' speakers within a day of them first trying it out.
Plus you can get a case that looks like a set of butt cheeks:
