Most speaker DIYer's will tell you that if you want great sound out of a cabinet you want it stiff and dampened so that box doesn't resonate with changes in air pressure while others say you want the sound qualities that wood offers. Now there's a speaker that offers both. The P.A.C.O. Concrete Speaker ($CALL) is probably the stiffest cabinet you'll find on the market.

The speaker also features bluetooth connectivity and gesture control. With a wave of your hand you can change the volume, play, and stop or skip tracks. The P.A.C.O has a 3.5" mid/low range driver and a 2" surface transducer and has a frequency range is 85Hz - 20,000Hz.
