JMC Soundboard speaker combines art and technology

Wood has typically been the material of choice when crafting speakers due to their inherent acoustic features, and the JMC Soundboard (pictured above), crafted by master guitar builder Jeanmichel Capt, seems to have managed to blur the lines between technology and art. These speakers are apparently handcrafted out of wood, spruce to be exact, from felled 350-year old trees in the Swiss Risoud Forest.
Due to the thin nature of these speakers and its convex surface, the JMC Soundboard apparently responds well to vibrations and supposedly does a good job at dispersing sound in a room. It measures 89 x 89 x 21cm, has an impedance of 8 Ohms, a frequency range of 25Hz-25,000Hz, power output of 2 x 80W and weighs 12kg. The JMC Soundboard will also be available in a variety of different colors and finishes if the natural look of wood isn’t to your liking. With its design, choice of material and the fact that it has been handcrafted, we guess we can’t say we’re surprised to learn that customers can expect to pay $6,530 for the JMC Soundboard.
