Looks really good.
Illustrator, right?
The shadow under the right-most speaker is 'incorrect' and badly affects the image as a whole.
Instead of using a radial gradient Black to white, could you use a black circle and a transparent radial gradial?

So when the 2 shadows meet it will re-inforce the shadows, rather than 'spotlight' one over the other.

Sorry for the lack of a better description.

have been wondering about this. speaker face is domed. is it plastic cone? looks solid. unmovable. how does that work? if its formed metal grill why not illustrate grill pattern? confused by that.

what is the little mouse thing? thought maybe wireless receiver. if it is why not integrate into woofer? main housing has plenty of room. and interface tech is small.

i like satellite speakers. but how do you manufacture them? assemble them? i see no part lines.

like your illustrations. wish you posted simple idea sketches to show development.

At a glance, it looks very nice, clean & simle (good). but after close examination, the shadows need help, shadow makes the subwoofer look like it's up against a wall. You have a good control of the form though, very readable. Do you know any 3-D programs yet? I've never been a fan of the illustrator rendering, and a form like this would only take about an hour and a half to complete. Then you would have as many views as you want. Keep up the good work.

2 ykh:the speakers face is lacunaris,It`s plastic grill pattern and movable."The little mouse"is Vol. controller.It`s more convenient。
By the way.because It` s not designed for production,so I do not think about manufacture process.

2 copyboy:I just learn a bit of Rhino,so I only rendering by Illustrator.

I`m very sorry for my poor english, :oops:

"lacunaris" just means like this pic.I hope you can understand my means.
I can`t see more detailing the volume controller to you,because it is just spent ten minute to design and not 3D model.

This Soundbox is designed for a design competition,it`s not production,so I can`t consider the process.
