If you are in the market for a modular speaker system that allows you to pick and choose the exact speakers you would like in your system with the ability to expanded at a later date you might be interested in the new Rock’n’Roll HiFi Speaker system that is taken to Kickstarter this week.
Created by a new London based H speaker company, the modular speaker system has been designed to fit perfectly into IKEA shelving units allowing you to expand your system as and when you require.
Watch the promotional video below to learn more about this modular speaker system which is looking to raise funds via Kickstarter to make the jump into production. Their creator explains more about the inspiration behind the modular speaker system and the design.
I have used various speakers over the years Gales, Harbeth, Bose 901’s and Quad ELS 63 electrostatics. Recently I repaired my Harbeth HL1 speakers that I bought in 1980, as the bass speaker needed replacing. Harbeth didn’t offer a repair service for a 35 year old speaker but with a little research I found a suitable replacement driver and it got me to thinking that I could build a Hi Fi speaker.
Initially I thought of building speakers based on the BBC monitor design. I also came up with a crazy idea based on building something a bit more Rock’n’Roll… a speaker that was the size of a guitar stack designed for playing LOUD Rock music.
It occurred to me that if I built the speakers as modular units that fitted into IKEA Kallax shelves, I could build a large speaker system out of small units.
