Jerrycan Speakers

I seem to recall that speaker enclosures should be rigid and massive, generally speaking, but there’s no denying the cool factor in this build-it-yourself project from Quebecois industrial designer Samuel Bernier. [via nerdstink]

  1. It’s mostly about isolating the front from the rear, but a large rigid enclosure does definitely help improve the sounds you are trying to reproduce. There are many different types of enclosures that produce different effects. Folks into bass tend to appreciate the ported bass speaker that recreates a Helmholtz resonator. Wikipedia has a great overview if you’re interested. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loudspeaker_enclosure

  2. Is it just me or does anyone else think gas tanks with wires running into them might get your car some special attention if parked in public?
