    The vents on a 1-piece boombox allow it to be heard from behind. This is important because 1-piece boxes are often used outdoors, where people are walking around in several directions. An egg or a 3-piece box, while it might sound superior indoors, is a poor choice for outdoor use, because all of its sound goes toward the front.

    Eggs and 3-pieces sound great when you're sitting in front of them, but if you walk to the side or behind them (or into another room), the vocals quickly drop off, leaving only warm, sloppy bass.
    That Kaboom uses real subwoofers on the sides -- They do not produce mids or highs --- So it does not matter which direction they point.
