ANYTHING BUT PASSIVE
Experience clearer, better & louder audio from your device—anywhere. No batteries or electricity required. #AnythingButPassive
HANDCRAFTED IN THE MOTOR CITY
Constructed from reclaimed wood, these are some of the most beautiful and sustainable speakers you can buy. The density and stability of the wood also offers superior sound quality, because it’s from before the days of accelerated growth. Aged wood complements our investment in electronics and structural design to deliver true-to-source fidelity. Every speaker is a one-of-a-kind work of art that outperforms top-selling brands. You make no compromises with Detroit Audio Lab.
All wood used is salvaged from homes or businesses in Detroit that are destined for demolition. Each passive amplifier is branded with the exact address the wood is sourced from.
REBORN FROM DETROIT
Born of Detroit’s renaissance, each piece is engraved with the address of the building from which the raw materials were salvaged. Each run is limited. Once the wood from a salvaged building is gone, that address is no longer available. With our Detroit-based partner, Architectural Salvage Warehouse of Detroit (ASWD), we salvage wood from blighted homes slated for demolition. ASWD reclaims 90% of the materials from these properties, keeping value and jobs in Detroit.
The wood is kiln dried and handcrafted in Detroit into high-fidelity speakers—literally Made From Detroit™. Each piece arrives with a letterpress address card describing the Made From Detroit™ concept and featuring the address of your piece, as well as a letterpress maker card proudly signed by the craftsman of your piece.
