Here's a video of the new Bumpboxx flare 8, what do you guys think of it? I think they could have been on to something if it had a stereo speaker alignment with dual tweeters or just simply used coaxial woofers and port where the strangely mounted center tweeter is located.

I guess with a single, center tweeter, it’s a mono.

I'm sure it's mono like the other models, aesthetically speaking I find it a bit odd and has faux stereo VU's.

I like the beveled edges, they give it a more rugged appearance and probably help reduce flex and resonance.  And the big volume knob is a lot easier to find than before.  But Bumpboxx still doesn't understand the importance of good-looking speaker grills.

I'll say it, the shitez just got no soul!. , plain and simple.

It's like when I look at the mother f***** Doesn't Remind Me of anything cool.

Kind of looks like one of those security briefcases with speakers.

Ditto.

 

I liked the Bumpboxx when i saw it at the meet, i don't like the distinct lack of morals they seem to have so i will never buy anything they make.

The handle is actually a commercial handle for a glass door.

The handle for the Bumboxx Freestyle is the one that was designed to be a towel bar. :lol:Attached File  14576B77-439D-4487-BCE5-4A490CCC9622.png   135.25K   25 downloads

Either way, a handle designed after something that you can pickup in a home improvement store in the bathroom fixtures department .....??? Uh, no thanks.

Your spot on Jimmy, Bumpboxx sources all their handles from a company that makes door handles for buildings. They are glass door handles.
