Title: Bentley Acoustics - Yes or no to a limited Carbon look? A poll maybe?
Post by: Dreamerm6 on June 21, 2018, 11:09:44 AM
Hi Guys, once again I need some advice please.. What do you think about the look of the Carbon Fibre?

Personally im not to sure about the look, but I may be wrong..

nay something doesnt look right. Will it be only the front baffle or the entire speaker

The carbon fibre look no longer has the association with hi-tech and quality it used to - every second oke has vinyl "carbon fibre" stuck on his Golf bonnet

Yup

Itís easy to spot too.   If itís real, Show it.  If it is a decal.  Donít.

Stick some drivers in, then we can judge better.

What about proper carbon fiber?

I quite like the look if it is the real deal

+1

A picture perpendicular to the camera would also give a better picture of the entire look

So if it is a decal donít.  You are trying to promote these as solid honest local value.  Fake carbon fibre doesnít fit that and would imo do harm.

Agree with you 100% Real carbon fibre or nothing.

after reading this i also change my vote to no. Real yes but not on entry level it will up the price to much.

Does the real carbon have a tech reason?

Yes 0-100 goes up by at least 0.5 of a sec. This depends on the wind drag from the port but it should still see good results.

i think that settles it. carbon is not a good idea in any form faux or real.

I guess my point is carbs n fibre is associated with higher costs and performance advantages.  There probably are some from a composite baffle in terms of rigidity.  One would have to make this a feature imo else
It just comes across as unnecessary expenses.  Not value. 

I think.

Carbon fibre is a recognised luxury finish. It's not always required to be functional.

only if its real carbon fibre - the fake stuff is just sad IMHO

to be honest though i reckon if you do have the speakers painted in the gloss piano black then it might look good with a carbon fibre baffle

We wont be doing a carbon fibre, Morne might want to custom his own.

CF wrapped baffle is just wrong. CF on the sides, even imitation CF, is a completely different story. Leaves many options open and available. Like, gloss baffle and top cap - choice of colours, or wood/veneer top and bottom caps, etc. - imagination is the key.
