But DESIGN comes first...




DESIGN

Design Innovation: Apple is so good at design innovation that you can be forgiven for thinking it invented the MP3 player. In fact, whether it's music players or computers, Apple is rarely the first entry into a field. Where Apple is almost always first is in capturing the hearts and minds through Design. Line-Extension Innovation: Porsche is the most profitable auto company and it's money product is the 911, around since 1964. Porsche still puts nearly all its eggs in the 911 basket. But then it innovates the heck out of the basket.

What is a "good" DESIGN ?
 

Designers satisfy a variety of criteria. A well-designed, properly produced product will meet certain standards that will be recognized as "better than the others" by most informed, knowledgeable consumers.

· FUNCTION   The first approach is function. How successfully does the design do what it is supposed to do? For example, how efficiently does a chair support a human form? In fact, how does a box-shaped loudspeaker enclosure work as it's function as a loudspeaker enclosure; say, compared to a curved-shape loudspeaker enclosure?

Illuminating Lights hang from Ceilings.
 

and Curved Loudspeaker Cabinets work well when hung from ceilings.  Creativity & Function in action.

Loudspeaker Cabinet is Black.  Light is in "Socket"

· BALANCE   Another important aspect of design is balance or symmetry. Formal balance is also called symmetrical balance. This means that the piece has a geometrical symmetry. Informal or asymmetrical balance means that their is still a general symmetry but it is not strictly geometric. The symmetry is one of contrast rather than geometry. Mass or visual weight, pattern, color, and texture are elements used in composing the informal balance of a piece.
 

· HARMONY   Also called continuity. Most objects are composites, made up of many parts. A good designer will make the various parts seem to belong together. One way of doing this is by repetition, for example curving all parts of the cabinet design.

Wife Friendly Cabinet ?


Cabinet as Decor in a Common Area Corner?





A Sub which really fits into a corner or even a Front Main Design

· EMPHASIS   Artists use emphasis to attract the eye. In design, a part that provides emphasis often has a practical of functional value. For example, drawer knobs can produce emphasis but are also used to open the drawers.  Conversely, we researched and could find nothing stating having the exact same cabinet and grill fabric color and texture is against any legal code.

AND
 

· HONESTY   Honest use of materials is essentially not hiding the material or techniques used. For example wood-grained plastic Formica laminate is not an honest material. The designer is attempting to fool the eye. If the laminate were solid or had some artificial pattern, it would be a more honest design. The honest use of materials overlaps into the region of taste or preference.

Design Procedure
FOR OUR CLIENTS:

 
 
1     Determine if the design is a copy or minor modification of an existing
       design, or, if it is an whole new design "from scratch".


2     Functional Requirements are obtained. What is it? A functional name
        is
assigned.

3     Stylistic Requirements now are the focus. The overall geometric shape
       should be laid out or "blocked up".

4     Mock-ups may be constructed at this stage, thus making it easier to
       develop detailed plans.

5     Working Drawings are the end result of the design process.

6     After client approval of the Design, a Manufacturing Cost Proposal is
       produced, based on our client needs and requirements.



US Enclosure Company can offer a 100% Turnkey Manufacturing Approach--
from your initial design work to monitoring production-line output for you.

The fact is, consumers have No-Problem with Curved Loudspeaker Enclosures as long as the enclosures "appear nice" and the product's sound has higher quality then alternative systems for the money spent.


Now, the person in charge of decor can Approve the purchase of curved loudspeakers enclosures (which are easier to blend into existing and planned interior decors).

This consumer will have no problem purchasing loudspeakers in a curved cabinet as they already own a large number of curved products in their home. And "Sound Great" for the money the consumer spent compared to the same drivers in a box cabinet.
