New fully 3d printed DIY speaker by Ted Kessler

Ted Kessler published overview and testing of his fully 3d printed speaker.


He writes:
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 FFF printer.
There's still development to be done on this project and I look forward to it!

It doesn't sound great, but hey, it is not the reason it was made ...
