Entry Description

100% of “garage” sound. Urban/A provides the recycling of
old tires to turn them into passive and/or active speakers.
After being properly washed the usual hole of the tire is
filled with coaxial speakers or subwoofer choosing between
several outputs and qualities. The round shape of the tire
helps in moving and in usual loading and unloading. Plus, the
rubber itself helps the absorption of sound transmitted to the
floor by vibration. Basically unchanging the tire, but
exploiting and enhancing its unique features, its design
facilitates work and processing time, mostly reducing energy
consumption and production costs, in the attempt to have a
sustainable product as the all meanings this term may have.
