Who knew that the very material that is virtually synonymous with architecture, had such great acoustics?! Germany-based audio company Concrete Audio (the name couldn’t be more direct) decided to ditch wood and ceramic as materials for speaker enclosures and opted for something rather avant-garde, resulting in speakers that don’t just feel robust, but sound incredibly powerful too.
The F1 is a flat, wall-mounted speaker that despite its size and thickness can churn out some seriously goosebump-inducing audio. Made from a slab of concrete, with a rather nicely arrayed pattern of audio drivers, the F1 uses highest-quality audio components like copper foil coils and silver-gold capacitors that work in tandem with concrete’s wave-reproducing abilities to seriously impress.
