However, if you like your home accessories to be intimidating, you have come at the right place. Here we have a collection of giant speakers that’ll make your jaws drop. Each one of them is unique, be it their looks or the thumping sound they produce.
# Giant Speaker At The University Of Wisconsin
Kyle Hanson and Dan Ludois from the University of Wisconsin have created this eye-opening speaker they call the Giant Speaker. With help from their buddies Justin Reed, Adam Shea, Chris Wolf and Micah Frickson they managed to recreate the six-foot tall speaker which brings back the memories of Back to the Future movie. Once the duo finished the design of this speaker they tested it with gadgets including iPod and bass guitars. The size of the speaker is truly complimented by its stomach churning output. The speaker is a one of creation for the duo’s PhD thesis, and if you are creative enough, you can make one for yourself too.
