This eye-popping transparent speaker system costs $133,000

Eye-catching system can be yours--for a steep price

It’s been twenty years since British audio company Ferguson Hill released their first transparent loudspeaker. The two decades since has produced a share of breakthroughs in audio and design that have been put to use in the company’s newest release, the Jetstream loudspeaker system.

The centerpiece of the system is a pair of 5.4-foot transparent standing horn speakers created from acrylic measuring 8-mm thick. According to Ferguson Hill, the acrylic horns help create an unparalleled listening experience. Each horn features a semi-full-range driver created in partnership with Cube Audio out of Poland. The structure of each horn, including its stainless steel legs, feature vibration dampening structures to get rid of any undesired frequencies.

The Jetstream also features a pair of bass speakers packed with 1.8-in-diameter high-efficiency neodymium drivers, as well as a bass amp housing two 200-W Class D amps and a low-pass filter.
