Speaker/Lamp Combo: A Bright Idea
Limelight Audio wants to shine a light on sound -- and possibly a good book -- with the AL1500.
October 04, 2006 by Rachel Cericola

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.
