They say you can make pretty much anything out of hemp, and apparently that includes loudspeakers.
Among the latest product offerings from Norwalk, CT-based Omega Speaker Systems is the “DeepHemp” Subwoofer that’s meant to complement the company’s hempcone speakers such as the Compact Hemp, Max Hemp and Super Hemp that range from $1,399 to $2,495 per pair.
The DeepHemp sub is $1,100 as an individual piece or $900 when bought with a pair of Omega speakers. We’ll gloss over any jokes about how smokin’ the Omega systems sound, since I’m sure at a few grand you really are getting great audio.
It features an 8-inch driver and frequency response down to 26 Hz, the company says. The 50-pound subwoofer is available in finishes such as burl ash, Italian red gloss, mahogany, teak and cherry.
Omega says the DeepHemp sub delivers deep, fast, well-defined musical bass.
Anyone have experience with Omega speakers and can tell us more about the musicality and sonic clarity hempcone and sub hemp driver provide?
