    Does the front edge shape of a speaker case or front baffle, when separate, have a significant impact on the speakers sound?

    Personally, I think not since there is such a wide variety of case front edge styles.

    What's your opinion?

    Ok, let me clarify.

    Speaker "X's" baffle has edges that are half round on all sides. Because of a need to re-size the speaker case the front baffle is modified in a way that changes the baffles edges from half round to square.

    Changing from a rounded to square edge will change the sound a tad...at least when measured but I'm not sure you'd ever hear the difference. Now if you changed the width more significantly that would change the sound as the cross over should be designed with a specific baffle step boost based on the width of the speaker
