You know, speakers don't need to be encased in some endangered Brazilian hardwood in order to sound good. Speaker makers only do stuff like that in order to weasel you out of more money. So why not go the opposite route with a set of speakers built out of PVC pipes?
These PVC speakers by Etsy seller ikymagoo go for $200 a set, but I'm sure if you're handy you could put a pair together for even less than that. But even at $200, they're reasonably priced and have a pretty sweet aesthetic to them. Who needs fancy enclosures?
