    Those are quite possibly the ugliest speakers I've ever seen.

    I'll pay an extra $10,000 for curtains to hide them behind when guests come over.

    Come on, these things are Art Deco Masterpeices. I want to try to make something that looks like them

    I’m with @Skyline. I like the Cicadas but these are tacky as hell.

    Fugly certified. I would put a King Kong doll atop the subwoofer.

    Fuck. I love these things. So absurd but so beautiful in a old timey movie sort of way.

    Good, I'm not the only one who thinks these are some horrendous looking speakers. I love art deco and the look of other Moth stuff, but man these are bad. I don't think the wood paneling background is doing them any favors either.

    Oh man, @Marvey just had to dig these up, lol. I can't speak for the mini buildings with Mother Teresa in the basement (creepy), but the Sub does perform like nobody's business. I vastly prefer the look in it's original Bruce Edgar incarnation though. The sub is on top of the big box firing down, and the smaller box on top covers the sub's basket.

    I already linked a photo from metropolis.
    Strong resemblance.

    Imagine watching Metropolis with these as your speakers

    1930s radio meets Chinese pagoda meets radio flyer bread box. Interesting though. I'm sure they sound better than anything I've ever heard despite reminding me of a country estate sale.

    Somehow, that made me flash back to this:



    Somebody should make speakers like that.

    Wait, only $35,000?

    Let's get this thing on a loaner tour.

    That really calls for photoshop. Wish I could, but I can't.
