After reading of the passing of Edward Villchur
in another thread yesterday, I thought I would mention a speaker that carries on his design, the Cambridge SoundWorks Model Six
the Six uses an old-skool styling theme so its WAF is low, but imo would still be good for a "mancave".
It was actually designed by Villchur's engineering partner, Henry Kloss, a respected audio engineer in his own right but also a good business man. CSW is a company started by Kloss in the late 80s and many of his speakers and subwoofers used the acoustic-suspension principal. While not quite as punchy or efficient as a similar-sized bass-reflex system, I and many other people prefer its particular sonic personality, which is usually characterized as being smooth and clean. This is why I own Advents used for my own music/HT system, Advent being another of Kloss' speaker companies.*
FYI the Six uses a cone tweeter which has not-so-great reputation, but if designed by someone who knows what they are doing, they can sound quite good plus they can be crossed over lower than most domes, which is important for the Six which uses an 8" woofer.
To be perfectly honest, I think the Model Six sounds quite
laid back or warm, so some may find it "boring" or lacking "sparkle" but depending on your own preferences and hearing system characteristics, it may be a great fit for you especially for modern music which can be recorded using very aggressive EQ choices.
* until 1994, when they were bought by another company and imo run into the ground
