Continuing with my series of projects from the past, here I leave you SPEAKRETE, a set of speakers that use a cinder block as a sound box.
This is a collaboration with Pablo Ferron, the initial idea was to develop a set of speakers and amplifier with a laser cut front and back, bolts and nuts. This would have been and awesome Kickstarter campaign, and I guess that if someday we find the necessary momentum we might give it a go.
There is not much in the technical department, just did the research and the prototype. It seems that there is kind of an international standard of cinder block sizes that nobody respects, but that doesn’t affect that much to the purpose of this project. We could have developed all the parts in a kit and let the final buyer source the cinder blocks locally.
Hope you enjoyed it!!
