Speakerwear for UA1

€59.00

Speakerwear is a piece of clothing for your  UA1

Dress UA1s to suit your interiors. Make UA1′s stick out with bright colours or fade them to background with shades of grey  to match your decor. Change Speakerwear later and fall in love with your speakers again.

Speakerwear fits right. Uploud Audio UA1 is a crooked piece of work for fabrics. Speakerwear fits UA1 like a second skin thanks to our dressmaker Riitta Mäki-Jouppi. Her 30 years of experience has been invaluable for us.

From tech to home decor. Uploud Audio’s Speakerwear looks and feels like Nordic home textiles and furniture. Pantyhoses traditionally used for speakers are but a distant memory.

Speakerwear and Sound

Strict requirements for fabrics. When combining fabrics with loudspeakers and sound it’s not enough for a fabric to just look good. It also has be transparent for the sound and opaque for the eye.

We blew into 100’s of fabrics, until we found the right one. In our blow test you take the fabric and stretch it in front of your mouth and blow air through it. If the fabric doesn’t resist airflow too much, it might be worth to take it to closer examination. We measured tens of fabrics with precision microphones and frequency sweeps both outdoors and in speakers’ natural spaces.
