If you’re a sucker for excessive volume, then you’re in luck. Dark ambient musician Brian Williams of Lustmord is selling his absurdly large home speakers.
The gear in question is a pair of Dunlavy SC-IV A speakers, described by Williams as “serious audiophile speakers, used in mastering suites”.
In the Facebook and Instagram posts, there features an image of two speakers that tower over a room. Given they barely fit within the image frame, it’s fair to say that simply taking a photo of these auditory behemoths was a feat in and of itself.
They are described as being 72 inches high. As the average height of an adult male around 69 inches, they stand even taller than most mere mortals.
On the Instagram post, Williams gave the following warning:
“Note that it takes two people to move one of these.”
Williams hasn’t posted a price, but an internet search finds that the going rate for a set of new Dunlavy SC-IV A speakers sits around the $8,000 USD mark. On Ebay, a second hand pair of the speakers is going for $4,800 USD.
The specifications of the speakers are as follows:
Frequency response: 25Hz-20kHz
Bi-wire and bi-amp capable.
72″ H x 12″ W x 18″ D.
Weight: 190 lbs (each)
In good condition.
