Looks very very nice, it has it's own unique look. Will there be grills for it? I like the drivers but the tweeter looks funny.

No grilles, thats not the tweeter we will be using, we will use a ribbon.

FS320 - 2 x 7" 4.5" mid & Ribbon tweeter
FS350 - 2 x 10" 4.5" mid & Ribbon tweeter

For FS 350 i would rather go 1x10" 1x7" 4.5" and ribbon

Or just go with 1◊12 inch. This might mess your front profile (slim).

I soooo glad you wont be using that wavy tweeter, was almost the demise of Sonus Faber. They changd the silkdome of Amati Homage to that horror. Its an uninteresting sharp, flat, screamer.
The Aneversario and Futura were so much worse than Homage. Now, the new Tradition back to silk dome and WOW WOW
There are a few others that used the same...yuck. AE implemented it ok in Radiance, but their reference than used silk. Everybody jumped on that wagon, everybody now changing  :thinking:


Ribbon, that can work  :)  Small midrange, also nice!!


Please Im talking from an EAR perspective, I must have heard over 100 different speakers past 3 years


Combo of a silk + ribbon ?

I really like how the front port is blended into the wood baffle, it looks so much cleaner and just so much better than a plastic port with a lip.

Please consider producing a center speaker and bookshelves after the initial range of speakers are sorted. I know there needs to be demand and every additional SKU increases complexity substantially, but it would make for one heck of a HT system.

I would still like to hear the Bentley Acoustic speakers. These looks great, I must say.
