And when the lights go down, the subwoofer glows in the dark, thanks to some cleverly integrated pink EL lighting.

D_stilgar says he’s working on a pair of matching Portal-inspired speakers, but won’t reveal what they look like yet. I’d wager that he’s working on a couple of slices of cake. But then again, that could be a lie.
