Over-Engineered Speaker Cables? Nope, Actual Speakers

Illustration for article titled Over-Engineered Speaker Cables? Nope, Actual Speakers

Do you live in a bizarre, warped, Escher-style home that's made installing a booming sound system next to impossible? The Anakonda KAN200 might look like a well shielded audio cable, but it's actually a flexible speaker designed to squeeze into spots where traditional boxy speakers don't fit, but still require jam pumping.

Flexible enough to even be wrapped around a pole, the Anakonda KAN200 can be mounted to curved surfaces or other irregularly shaped architecture, and up to 32 of them can be daisy-chained together to cover large spaces.

At over six-and-a-half feet long the Anakonda speakers are aptly named since installation is probably like wrestling a large snake, and at $900 per section they're actually not outrageously priced as far as high-end home audio gear goes. But unlike a real snake, let's hope these are properly balanced so they don't hiss. [K-array via Gizmag]
