A set of custom made speakers, the Empire “Steam” Steampunk duo is meant for those who enjoy the goodness of Steampunk, and have big money to spend for their Steampunk pleasure. Standing three feet tall, each speaker has a 1.5-inch thick granite top, and weighs in at 125 pounds. At the business end, the speakers have a high quality innards in the shape of two Vifa 1-inch silk dome sealed back tweeters, Pyle 5-inch sealed back midrange, Goldwood 15-inch heavy duty down firing woofer and Eminence 3-Way speaker crossover.
The handcrafted speakers take a decidedly Victorian look to justify their name, plus a liberal use of wood and copper to justify the price tag. In all fairness though, the speakers are finished with quite an artsy look, one that many would deem justifies the price tag of $12,600.
