Speakers That Think Outside The Box

Speakers That Think Outside The Box

Your computer has a paint job similar to a Ferrari. Your phone looks like an alien communication device. Your wallet is made of recycled rubber. You clearly aren’t a person content with coloring in the lines or thinking inside the box when it comes to design, so why should your speakers be so… conventional? Snap out of the fiberboard sound tomb you’re used to with these speakers that think outside the box.

Hive Modular Speaker System

Man solves many problems by simply adding more of something (horsepower, wood, steel, the list goes on and on) and the Hive Speaker System is no different. If When you need more sound (what man doesn’t), simply connect more modular Hive pieces until you’re satisfied – or you run out of drywall.

Munny Speakers

If you’re looking for speakers that come alive, look no further than these hacked Kid Robot Munny speakers. Two of the Munny dolls were defaced, literally, and fit with Creative audio speakers. This is one set of dolls you’ll gladly display.

Butt Speakers

Until we were introduced to these butt speakers, we would have thought it was impossible for any sort of soothing sound to emanate from an ass. Smack dat ass to turn it on and off; wax on, wax off to control the volume.

Washington Speaker Docking Station Lamp

Equal parts lamp, iPod dock, found art and speaker, Etsy user bugcicle’s one of a kind creations are the roadmap to a more interesting living room – and a more enjoyable sound experience.

ikyaudio Red Lobester Audio Speakers

PVC pipe, normally confined to a bland off white color and contents of the liquid nature, gets turned into a piece of functional art by way of a custom paint job and a pair of 3 inch magneisum/aluminum alloy full range drivers.

Mannequin Speakers

When it comes to what we’re calling the iBod, a picture is really worth a thousand words. From what we hear though, the tactile response is on par with the audio quality – a little on the a little on the artificial side, but definitely worth it.

Pnoe Horn

Suessian in appearance, audiophilian in performance, the Pnoe Horn is a room dominating combination of hard science and high design. A decade in the making, it’s sound quality is as uncompromising as it is physically large.

Ceramic Speakers

Combining seemingly unrelated elements like cork, aluminum, cast iron, porcelain and Baltic birch plywood could have gone horribly awry, but in the capable hands of Joey Roth they’re turned into some of the most gorgeous, high-end speakers we’ve ever seen.

Woofer Speaker System

If you have trouble deciding between your dog and your iPhone for the title of man’s best friend, the Woofer Speaker System (pun intended) is right up your alley. With a 60watt – 280watt, 4ohm speaker, it’s bark is definitely louder than it’s bite.

Klipsch Lightspeaker

Straight from Klipsch Q Division comes their new whole house audio system and it looks like a light bulb. The wireless speakers install into recessed cans as the bulbs you hate changing, but since these are rated to look and sound good for the next 15 years, you’ll only have to change them once.

Giant iPod Headphone Speakers

While you quickly dismissed the “stock” sound system that came with your latest iDevice for comfort reasons, it’s a whole different ball game when they get super-sized into desktop speakers. Just don’t try putting them into your ears.

Ampoids Altoid Speaker Amp

If you only get to carry one curiously strong thing in your pocket, is it going to be mints or a portable amp and speaker? Hook up your device of choice with the included cable, flip the switch and share the party in your pants with everyone around you.
