Our engineers found that solid oak wood from whiskey barrels had great acoustic properties. The wood from these barrels had a mature mellow tone that when flattened out made a great finished speaker. The speakers are made from oak that has spent approximately 50 years helping mature whiskey. This mature aged wood shows in the quality of sound and craftsmanship of the speaker.
These one of a kind speakers are only available in the United States exclusively through pioneerelectronics.com.

We recommend them enthusiastically for discriminating listeners." Read Full Review

"It may seem like a gimmick, but Pioneer knows what they are doing. It's just funny that when you soak in whiskey, you get into fights. When wood soaks in whiskey, it produces rich sound. Go figure." Read Full Review
