Passive speakers for your iPhone.

Less horsepower

More fun

It's a passive speaker

That you can play bass with
The idea here is to keep it simple. Less is more! The beauty of these cellobasses is something to behold, but whenever I have gone for more horsepower what I get is feedback of a kind that iss not musical. They always play very nicely balanced all the wasy up and down the neck, until you turn them on. Then there are places along the scasle that ring out loud and out of control and other places along the register that don't put out and everything in between.

When I had time...

I went the other way on this one. I had it planned out to use an equalizer booster amp from the 80s car sstereo scene. During initial testing with my iPhone Xs, I found that the richest, mosst natural sound came out of the speakers when the boosster was turned off. It was not as loud of course, but it jusst sounded so nice and clean. So I eliminated the booster and replaced it with some miniature, low-power class C amps like the ones in the Harmony PowerPal.

out of many, one.

E Pluribus Unum was once the motto of the United States of America and references the fact that the cohesive single nation was formed as the result of the thirteen smaller colonies joining together.
