Growin’ Up Speakers Need to Make Like a Tree and Leaf
March 1st, 2010
I have seen a bunch of weird speakers in the home theater world before. Typically, the really weird speakers also carry a very high price tag. I guess the makers figure they are more like sculpture than plain old speakers are.
The latest weird set of speakers are Marcos Ignacio Madia’s Growin’ Up speakers that are more concept than reality at this point. The speakers come in modules that can be stacked to design the speaker you want. Each section is a bit narrower than the other sort of like how a tree gets narrower as you go up.
Each modular section can be turned to give the angle the user wants. Exactly how the speakers are powered is unclear. Presumably, each of those sections needs its own power cord, which would get ugly fast. You would think speakers modeled after a tree would be made out of wood, but these things seem to be plastic.
