A unique speaker system has been created using 3D printing technology and sand. The marine inspired Ionic Sound System has been created by Deeptime based in the Czech Republic. The 3D printed sand outer skins applied to the speakers provide “excellent damping qualities” say their creators.
The subwoofer from the Ionic Sound System aptly named Thunderstone and its shape and design has been inspired by the urchins of the Black Sea. On the top are mounted to aluminium volume controls with the outer ring controling the bass, while the inner ring dials volume up or down. Equipped with three bass ports, each with an LED inside that gets brighter and the volume is increased, and has a built-in Class-D amplifier driving a 5.75 inch bass speaker.
The subwoofer features digital and analog audio inputs for cabling up music source devices, and Bluetooth with aptX for streaming playlists from a smartphone or tablet. If you are interested in owning a set of Spirula speakers or Ionic Sound System the full system is priced at roughly $3,560 or roughly €3,242 with Spirula speakers available from €899 a pair. But be warned production is limited to just 1,618 sets.
