Product teardown or Lovecraftian horror?

From "What cracking open a Sonos One tells us about the Sonos IPO":

This part is extremely complex for such a simple functional part. There are a surprising number of ribs, undercuts, and bizarre geometry not often found in consumer electronics parts.

...

This primary structural part (where the main circuit board is mounted and that holds the mid-range driver) is again, wildly complex

...

Why Amazon decided to mold the part this way is beyond me.
