Grovemade has introduced a Speaker System that optimizes sound through natural materials. Designed in collaboration with Portland-based industrial designer, Joey Roth, Grovemade weaved their individual aesthetic perspective and manufacturing capabilities with his unique approach to audio design.
Coupled with a 2x25W amplifier, the back-loaded horn design reinforces the low frequencies, while the 2” full range driver delivers coherent mids and sparkling highs without the use of digital signal processing. Each wooden speaker shell is precision machined from solid, domestically sourced walnut or maple hardwoods using Autodesk’s Fusion 360 software in Grovemade’s Portland-based workshop.
The parts are bonded together with high performance epoxy adhesive, hand formed through extensive sanding by Grovemade’s craftsmen, and two coats of natural oil are applied and buffed by hand to seal the wood. A stainless steel stand is then installed and covered with premium vegetable-tanned leather, covering any visible fasteners. The Speaker System works in unison with Grovemade’s existing Desk Collection and is compatible with computers, turntables, and other audio sources.
“The Speaker System is unlike anything we’ve ever done in the past and we achieved this through our collaboration with industrial designer Joey Roth and our advanced internal manufacturing and design capabilities,” says Ken Tomita, Grovemade, co-founder. “The result is a piece that is timeless, elegant and wholly unique in character capable of delivering an acoustically rich sound.”
Grovemade’s Speaker System retails for an introductory price of $599 for walnut and $499 for maple at www.grovemade.com.
