3D Printed Speakers

This is an experiment in inventing a new tone as a tool for musicians. Speakers were invented between the 1860s-70s and have more or less been constructed with the same materials since. There was something interesting to me about reproducing a classic design with a cutting-edge technology and modern materials, so I did that. As the speaker's utilitarian and scientific roles have been fulfilled for decades and are now used as art tools, I wanted to treat them as art tools. The printed parts were done on a consumer-level Rigidbot extrusion printer. There's still development to be done on this project and I look forward to it.
