Dr. Seuss, your Alpha speakers from Symbio Design have arrived

Steven Kim

Here's a way-out speaker design that looks like it will reach production. After showing off the design concepts for the Alpha loudspeaker at exhibitions, public reaction has spurred its creator, Symbio, to initiate series production for the unusual design. Certainly, advanced materials and manufacturing techniques can break free from box designs to the benefit of performance. It's a bit hard to read between the lines of the company's website, but the frequency response looks pretty flat from 200 - 20k Hz. For speakers measuring about 22 x 13 x 18-inches, the limited frequency response is understandable. Unfortunately, pairing the Alpha with the still-not-real Beta center channel or Eggo sub isn't an option, so interested buyers may have to mix and match with more pedestrian designs for now.
