Stone Speaker Cases
 
Hello,

I know nothing about audio, speakers etc.

I can obtain unique stone for speakers to be mounted in. I have panels of stone that could be put together to make stone speaker boxes of what ever size. Is this something that would work?

What considerations would need to be taken into account. I wish I could show photos here, but seem not to be able to?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks

I recall someone on the AVS Home Theater forum, making some large beautiful stone speakers.

diyaudioprojects.com has a granite speaker build. Very nice looking. DIY Granite Speakers with Seas G17REX/P and 27 TFFC Drivers

They did fill those particular speakers with artificial cotton.

How can I post a photo of the stone that I have?

Thanks

Thanks for your response.

Here are some of the stones that I have.

So if I were to make speaker cabinets, what should considerations should there be?

Anything else?????

:)

Thanks

I hate to say it, but you can't assume that anyone contemplating buying speaker enclosures from real or composite "stone" has fully considered the ramifications of the weight issue (particularly the very real hazard posed with a stand mounted box ), so you might want to consult lawyers regarding drafting of liability disclaimer. I mean, when a fast food restaurant can be sued for the hotness of their coffee....even if you win, you lose - at least time and expense defending frivolous claims.


Also don't forget to radius all edges and corners - a simple breaking of arris might not be sufficient.


gorgeous stone

I agree with Chris:

1. Very nice stone.
2. Concerns with weight.
3. Concerns with stability.

Other than that, I bet it would make a very good material.

Cal and Chris are right. Weight is really something to consider. Here is my marble TT. What a pain to move it around when building it. It comes in at just under 100lbs.
