Ceramic Speakers: Don’t Play Anything Too Heavy
September 14th, 2009
This beautiful pair of ceramic speakers, designed by Joey Roth, “are designed to leave the sound untouched, warm, dry, and detailed.” The handcrafted 4″ speakers are made of porcelain and cork, which the product’s page calls “acoustically dead.” I think that’s a good thing.
I’m seriously wondering if the speakers will break if it plays stuff like Children of Bodom or Lamb of God.
But if by “acoustically dead” it means that porcelain and cork don’t absorb sound, then metalheads can enjoy their favorite bands with these babies. Can someone explain the acoustics of porcelain to this poor writer?
gSelect sells the porcelain speaker set for $500 (USD); unfortunately it’s out of stock as of this writing. You may want to head on to its product page anyway so you can leave your email address and be notified when the product is available again.
