Someone Should Make Speakers That Look Like These

by Paul Strauss

Here’s a nifty idea for some nifty desktop speakers. All you need is 6 cheap square Mylar speakers, 21 cable ties, and the patience to stitch ’em together into a see-through cube. Et Voilà!

This speaker cube was recently spotted over on the MAKE: Flickr Pool and seems like a really cool concept. Macetech, the guy who mocked this up never actually wired it to an amp, but I’d certainly take that next step. Now, I’m not sure what sort of weird issues you’d have with all those magnets facing the inside of the cube, but it’ll definitely crank out some kind of funky omni-directional sound if you wire all 6 together with the right amp.

Wanna give it a shot? I took a few minutes to research where you could get your hands on similar square Mylar speakers and found some from UK retailer Maplin for under $7 bucks a piece. Just add wire, zip ties and an amp you don’t care too much about.
