A monocoque carbon fiber chassis, exhaust system with variable aperture and passive shock absorber system to dampen vibrations—you might think this were describing a fancy sports car, if not for the headline and pictures giving away the fact that it’s really about a 6.1 sound system (albeit a racy one at that).
Two years of meticulous Italian design in the making, the EsaVox screams Lambo, both geometrically and literally with its prominent nameplate. It’s iXoost’s follow-up to their audio sculptures inspired by aeronautics and Formula One exhausts. But spec-wise, this blows away those others.
Its first 600 watts get distributed amongst the 6 1/2-inch full-range and 8-inch carbon woofers housed in each of the two stylistic hexagonal side cabinets, along with the dual 1-inch Mylar tweeters hiding inside two of the exhaust pipes. The final 200 watts is dedicated to the down-firing 15-inch Neodymium subwoofer at the heart of this audio beast. And it’s all managed by two 24-bit digital signal processors.
It can accept a wired RCA input from your TV, receiver, old school gaming consoleand other audio sources; or connect wirelessly to your phone, tablet or laptop. So you’ve got a plethora of options for treating your tunes to a trip through the EsaVox’s pipes.
It comes in four fashionable colors: black, red, orange and yellow. And it’s available right now in the Lamborghini Store for the sweet sum of $24,000. Sticker shock? Perhaps monsieur would be more comfortable in the much more affordable $3,100 Porsche 911 Soundbar.
