Eggshell speakers

Wow – Gomhi made these incredible little speakers out of actual eggshells! –

Handcraft loudspeakers using chicken eggshell as cabinet. They sound narrow, but I’m pleased about the result.
Driver unit is Hi-Vi B1S.

(I’ll kindly omit the usual “egg” puns) I’d imagine cutting the shell so neatly would be a rather delicate process – take a closer look on Flickr.

    He mentioned the sound is narrow, but how would these speakers sounds if in a proper enclosure?

        Hahaha the great thing with giving words to sound is it can be as ambiguous as you want.

        I’m pretty sure he means narrow as a small part of the spectrum is heard clearly and the rest is lacking. Probably, no bass or treble, just ‘middle’.

    Wide would mean having a wide frequency range, narrow meaning – well I think you get the idea, btw egg-cellent post, sorry I couldn’t resist

    This speaker driver would perform quite better if in a proper enclosure, I think. Probably my stuff haven’t achieved such great performance.

    My intention about “narrow” is as paolo kindly described it.
