Designed by Sander Mulder & Dave Keune, Buro Vormkrijgers. This is functional kitsch; the wrong becomes the new right. By adding a function to an otherwise grotesque object, it acquires new aesthetic values, becoming an object of desire. Pun intended, this woofer holds the mids between an addition to your sound system and your loyal 4 footed companion. Available in a co-axial two way speaker system version [two dogs].
Fun as they are, somehow I just can’t see giving over my audio to a visual gag certain to wear thin after a few weeks. Or to have to repeatedly answer the obvious next question: “Are your tweeters shaped like birds?” Especially for 600 Euros.

oh, get off yer high horse, geeze. my only complaint is that the drivers aren’t painted like a cross section of internal doggy – spinal column, jugular, tracheal cartilage etc in full splendor. if i had the money, these would be mine in a heartbeat regardless…
the tweeters would be tougher, unless you want hawk-sized statuettes on your mantle. oh – wait – a pair of taxidermed ravens would be PERFECT for these.
This reminds me of the Houndeye (a.k.a. Sound Dog) from the orig Half-Life computer game ;)
