Ok, they only cost more than a “low-end” Ferrari, say an F430 — but at $180,000 for the system, these monstrous speakers certainly aren’t for the frugal.
MBL’s 101 X-treme speaker system cranks out sound using a set of four custom built towers. Two of the towers feature pairs of the company’s proprietary omni-directional drivers (like the ones in their smaller 101E speakers), while the other two will rattle your bones with a stack of four 12-inch subwoofers.
Handcrafted from quality materials such as carbon fiber, aluminum, steel and wood, these mammoth speakers truly live up to their “extreme” name tag. The whole system is built-to-order and requires about a month to construct from start to finish.
