Isn't wood more absorbing of sound than metal...? Or do they not put sound-absorbing material on the inside of the wood?
Anyone with the wood version care to weigh in...?
I have a pair of wood Victor DX-700s that sound great to me. (Though it is also the driver, I know.)
Wood is porous. Porous materials don't dampen as much as solid materials like metal; instead it reflects off the surface.
Which is what causes resonances, soundstage problems, etc.
