Hi, has anyone else wondered why Sharp chose to cover up most of the tweeter and leave only the dust cap visible? They covered up the rest of the tweeter cone with a flat plastic disc which screws onto the inside of the box. Surely more sound would come out if the whole cone was exposed? It seems to me that whatever small amount of sound comes from the dust cap is hardly, if at all amplified by the cone-shaped plastic molding at the front of the box. Why would Sharp do this? For aesthetics? See picture for guidance...
