little horn speakers

world’s away from contemporary sleek speakers, the little horn speakers have large octagonal fluted
horns that carry the sound upwards, filling the room. the design allows the low frequency sound waves
to expand naturally, with minimal resonance. the little horns are made using high-density fiberglass,
while the speaker base is baltic birch plywood. the sound begins in the base, where it is first compressed
and sent up the horn. the design take formal cues from antique horns and record players, altering them
for contemporary use.
