This salad bowl sounds good





Salad bowls are not only good for tossing greens, they make good spherical speakers too. Here’s a pair from Robert that are getting the kudos.

He says, “I wanted to make a pair of speaker enclosures and bought a pair of Ikea Blanda Matt Bowls, glued them together then mounted the speaker driver in them.”

    The Stanford Laptop Orchestra (SLOrk) has built similar speakers out of Ikea salad bowls. Check out the video on YouTube. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmszXmks2EI)

    Hello here !
    I saw this design a few weeks ago and i wanted to do something like this…
    I choose the idea of making a 2way bookshelf speaker with 2 salad bowls.
    The result is this : http://img600.imageshack.us/img600/2544/dscf2715n.jpg
    It sounds great ! trebles are not directional at all, voices are clears, the low part is great, not deep of course due to a small diameter (105mm) and a lack for the moment of dampening material inside the bass bowl…

    I’ll post a link with the parts and mounting procedure to do that ….
