THE SOUND OF POWER

EXTREME BUST SPEAKERS

The Sound of Power (SOP) series is a tribute to the porcelain figurines and the busts our grandparents loved to collect. Glossy white men and flawlessly carved maidens reminded us of something bigger, than our ordinary lives and inspired to greatness.

The Sound of Power is a contemporary reincarnation of these classical objects combining striking visual and audio qualities. SOP is a completely new genre of both busts and speakers. The series will feature powerful people who, in their own way, played the world like instruments and made countries and continents alike march to the beat of their metaphorical drums. Created in Russia and handcrafted in Sweden these bust speakers a true pieces of useful art and collectors item.

The latest release is Margaret Thatcher AKA Maggie. Previous releses are Kim Jong-Un AKA Kim Sunshine Vladimir Putin, AKA St. Vladimir.

SOUND OF POWER IN MEDIA

Manufacturing SOP bust speakers is a slow and demanding process.

Each piece is individually casted and polished to perfection.

 

When the driver is installed each SOP undergoes a careful inspection and testing before numbered and signed. Even the amplifier which serves as the SOP stand is handcrafted. The level of craftsmanship in SOP production is as high as it's made for art exhibition.

CLASSICAL BUSTS NOW SERVE AS MONO BLUETOOTH SPEAKERS.
