    Explain how this is a Gatlin Gun type Speaker and not just a speaker in a six sided case.

    Oh and also shoot the video in the same room you test the speaker. There was too much background noise etc. going on to be able to listen to what was being said.

    Cheers Mak

    you need to reshoot this video and have someone who is more an actor who can explain the product without stops or jumps in his explanation. The video you have doesn't really tell you anything and the speaker on that unit is lacking the way it was recorded. Needs to be in a quiet room without background noises. Etc. This looks like a cool idea and would be a nice build for my nephews to do. Let us know plainly where to get the parts for this thing. How much time we will need to use on the CNC or whatever' machine. Many of us rent time on those machines. Thanks n good luck

    It looks for me like a commercial for this Kickstarter product. I mean - i cant see any tutorial here. You have screwed some professional laser-cut plexiglas parts together, and tadaaaaaaa - we have a speaker. Thats not how DIY works.

    Hi, thank for your attention about this project, we will think about your suggestion and more details.


    Exactly my thoughts too. :/

    really looks cool

    Hi, thank you!

    Really glad that you like.

    Nice idea but using a kickstarter as the main hardware component
    isn't very helpfull how can we build this stuff if the hardware doesn't
    exist ?. This sound's more like a shameless advertisement to fund your
