Up close and personal with SpeakerCraft6 October 2010
The new systems from the Flo series, the FloBox and FloBox Mini, feature integrated iPod/iPad/iPhone docks, plus a CD drive on the larger version. Both models also include an FM tuner and a mini USB port allowing for synchronisation with most digital delivery systems, including iTunes.
The FloBox has a driver compliment of two 3.5-inch mid-woofers and two 0.75-inch dome tweeters supported by a single 5.25-inch subwoofer. The FloBox Mini has two 3-inch woofers and two 0.75-inch tweeters. The two units will be available in a black, white, silver, red or yellow high-gloss, piano finish to either blend in or stand out in any environment.
Jeff Francisco, SpeakerCraft’s v-p of product development, commented: “This project has been very rewarding as we were able to even further advance our focus on audio performance while delivering an aesthetically impressive product for the retail customer. We didn’t want to just make noise; we wanted to make a statement and that is exactly what we have accomplished.”
“There is an entire generation that has missed out on high-performance audio reproduction because of MP3 music delivered through cheap headphones and mediocre electronics,” added Jeremy Burkhardt, SpeakerCraft’s president. “We want them to experience a room filled with sound that completely changes their opinion of what music can sound like and that is exactly what the FloBox does.”
