If you’ve been looking to shine a little light on your AC/DC addiction, now you can—literally. Limelight Audio has figured out a way to stuff speakers right into a lamp.

The AL1500 speaker/lamp combo boasts 360 degrees of sound, thanks to the two-way bass reflex enclosures. Each one packs a 6.5-inch woofer, a 1-inch tweeter, and of course—light.

Each one can handle 150 watts of power, or you can take out the bulb and make like Mr. Microphone. It’s hard not to with a cabinet frequency of 48.5Hz, a crossover frequency of 2.2kHz, and an impedance of 4 to 8 ohms.

The cabinets are available in six colors that look and feel like granite, with a choice of a standard white shade or two optional choices in Dupioni Silk.

  • Boasts 360 degrees of sound
  • One 6.5-inch woofer, one 1-inch tweeter
  • 150 watts of power
  • Cabinet frequency: 48.5Hz; crossover frequency: 2.2 kHz
  • Nominal impedance: 4 ohms. (8 ohms available)
  • Topped off with designer lampshades
  • Cabinets available in six colors
