If you’ve got a thing for do-it-yourself speaker kits, the Firebird from Bastanis might be right up your alley. The German speaker company is a specialist in the DIY market, selling several different models of loudspeakers that you can put together yourself.  While the company is based in the UK, there are a few dealers in the US that will be selling the new Firebird speakers.

The midrange is handled by a nine inch broadband driver, while a ribbon tweeter takes care of the highs.  A huge eighteen inch woofer provides the bass through a controlled enclosure. The Firebird loudspeakers are unique looking, like sort of an ornate chesspeice.  They’re simple to put together, and absolutely no woodworking or soldering is required.  They come unfinished though, so if you want to change up the look, you’ll need to do that.

Bastanis has the price set at two thousand Euros, or around $2,800 USD.
