It certainly looks nice.

Do the little dimples in the speaker cone have a technical significance or are they just for looks. It's too big to drive with a one wood so I'm assuming they are not for distance.

Monitor Audio claims the dimples make the driver material more rigid and also helps displace standing waves.

Those look very nice, Cesar! Congrats on the speaker purchase. Glad you got something you enjoy.

Loc: It's all about the location.
Those are some beautiful speakers, congrats. Some speaker manufacturers use dimples, triangles or ribs stamped into the cone material to help stiffen the speaker and/or reduce standing waves. Perhaps the most notable are made by Scanspeak using ribs on some of their(excellent) drivers.

I think the dimples help the speaker from slicing to the right on my tee shot...

Thanks. Happy so far. I do have to admit, having them sit next to the new Panasonic VT30 (even on the floor) makes me wonder what a full, 5.1, piano black system would look like in my man cave...
