The MiniSkull Speaker from French duo Kuntzel+Deygas has to be one of the more handsome and unique speakers we’ve ever seen. Handcrafted from walnut to look like a skull, these speakers not only look great, they are serious audio pieces. Inside is a pair of Fostex Fe-83 speakers with a banana leaf pulp membrane (which forms the eyes of the skull). There’s also a custom made Mosfet amplifier inside to boost sound levels. These 50 watt beauties measure about 10 inches tall, run about $2000 each and you can array 5 of them to create the coolest looking surround system ever. They take 4-8 weeks to produce and ship, so don’t count on getting them in time for Christmas- this year.
