The Cube Speakers by Fern & Roby
Machined from a solid beam of heart pine salvaged from a late 19th-century Virginia factory, the wood used is over 100 years old. Heart pine was used so extensively as the structural framework and flooring of typical American factories in the period that it was timbered almost to extinction. The demolition and salvaging and repurposing of these buildings is now the only manner to source this wood, a distinctly North American material.
Working with audio engineers, Fern & Roby designed the ported interior of the machined enclosure to be a “tuned” spatial volume to give the best bass response possible for a bookshelf speaker of this class.
