Klipsch LightSpeakers screw into light bulb sockets, play music

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on January 5th, 2010

These Klipsch LightSpeakers don’t look like much, but if you hate wires, they should appeal to you. The LED light bulb fits 5 and 6-inch light fixtures and is even dimmable, so you can replace the usual bulbs you use with these, which will apparently last for 40,000 hours.

Then you’ll be playing music wirelessly through your lights, which is what Thomas Edison wanted all along. They contain a 2.5-inch wide dispersion driver and use 20 watts. The kit comes with a transmitter that connects to a PC, CD player or iPod and sends the audio to up to eight of the light bulbs in two separate zones.

Coby 3D Audio Soundbar headed for CES

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on December 31st, 2009

Swiss company Sonic Emotion has teamed up with Coby to unveil a new 3D stereo speaker. They are calling it the “first soundbar on the market that plays 3D sound from simple stereo input”. We’ll see about that claim.

The 3D Audio Soundbar’s secret to such rich sound is that it uses field synthesis to create 3D surround sound. The 3D Audio Soundbar will be displayed at CES 2010. Then we will now for sure if the claims are true or if they are just blowing 3D audio up our bums.

Q-TV2 Speakers put stereo speakers and a subwoofer behind your HDTV

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on December 27th, 2009

We don’t know for sure if the sound on this thing is awesome or sucky, but we love the design in which Q Acoustics hides a complete speaker system behind your flat panel TV. The setup works with TVs between 30 and 42 inches and attaches to an existing frame. It will even work with your TV sitting on a stand.

Right now it’s only available in Europe for $500. Sure it’s pricey but it gets the speakers out of the way and chances are it’s better than the speakers built into your TV.
