When 3-D Printed Speakers Can be This Good!

Serendipity speakers by Matt Featherstone

These 3-D printed speakers may look like a lifestyle statement. But, look closely, the open-baffled tweeter and the ported midrange speaker are inspired by Lawrence Dickie’s designs and has an expansion chamber, similar to that of a motorcycle. The expansion chamber is designed to increase the ‘back pressure’ off the driver unit – these are not just style elements.
