FEATURES:

BOOM MODE

hold + to kick up bass for fun settings.

FOCUS MODE

hold - to mix in a Lo-Fi mode for a more mellow vibe.

2 RESONATORS to enhance low-end for both modes

Market Research

Competitive products/Builds

takeaways:

benchmarking price point/quality products in the bluetooth speaker market

Highly saturated market, the "story" is going to make the difference

Noting manufacturing/construction of products through teardowns

Interior air tight modules variables: 

tweeters, woofers, drivers, passive resonators.

CMF: TAKEAWAYS

interiors modules are made from plastic (complex shapes)

exterior casing are usually plastic, sometimes aluminum 

fabric mesh is common (plastic usually)

Boom

mixing in a higher bass for more energy

Lo-Fi

high end eq for more lo-fi vibe, every song is different so it'll require a complex mixing algorithem

SOUND: materials and form case study

Takeaways:  Hardwood

Acoustic qualities:

  1. Reduced Resonance: if material is too dense it would become muffled

  2. Enhanced Warmth: related to eliminating resonance

  3. Improved Clarity: Clarity can be improved with a more dense material

  4. Increased Loudness:  No having enough volume of air on the inside of the speaker cabin can create loudness issues

Craft:

  1. Limitation on form

  2. Design made with basic woodworking techniques: Router, Drill, Sander, Mill

Multiple wall thickness and interior cabin volume 

Takeaways:  Plastic

Acoustic qualities:

  1. Resonance: Unappealing resonance in the sound, could be fixed with design changes.

  2. No warmth, brightness: caused by the resonance 

  3. Clarity: there's clear sound coloration leading to unwanted results

  4. Accuracy:  No sound dampening which lead to a noisy/dirty sounds

Craft:

  1. Little limitation on form.

  2. Design made with generative design techniques: Grasshopper, Maya, Blender. 

  3. Not a positive, can easily get out of hand.
