Bhaava branding. Because industrial design lurks in his very veins, Jacob's branding cues are unusually stylish. Silk-screened on each side of the plinth's angled bass lens sit the company logo and model name. I deliberately darkened the next photo for contrast. In actuality, the two-tone effect of white type on clear aluminium is far more subtle.

Additionally, each speaker's upper cheek is adorned by this appliqué symbol. Meanwhile the fronts are clear of all badges or name decals for proper British understatement as perhaps a remnant of India's prior occupation; or more likely just good taste.

That draws the eye to the main protagonist, the Boston Acoustics bi-cone widebander which Rethm modified with a bull-nosed phase plug woodie. The radial perf pattern surrounding the 8-inch paper cone is something we previously saw bracketing Albedo Audio's Aptica tweeter. It eliminates edge diffraction. Italian designer Massimo Costa even issued a white paper to explain the math behind it. Techno peasants see an interesting visual touch. Hardcore engineers recognize an embedded acoustic purpose. All call it a win/win.

The next photo shows another unexpected styling element by way of the triangular veneer inlay at the top of each speaker's back. Because the light fell on it just so, the right speaker shows it off particularly well.

Each of our marble floor's tiles is exactly the size of my US 43-size Cowboy boots. So the next shot demonstrates how each Bhaava is less than two average men's feet deep. That's rather compact packaging for 30Hz bandwidth asserting itself in a 5.5 x 15 metre room with double-high vaulted ceiling.

To conclude the EyeFi aspects, here are the pre-modification Boston HQ driver and internal bass amp with selectable filters.
