3DPrinting.com presents Sustainable Audio: Speakers made from recycled materials using 3D printing technology.


Infinite Acoustics, a company that specializes in manufacturing 3D printed speaker cabinets, is making waves in the industry with its sustainable and decentralized approach. By utilizing recycled industrial and consumer waste, Infinite Acoustics is not only reducing carbon footprints but also aligning with circular economy principles.

One of their standout product lines, the Black Velvet Hwy speakers, is designed to integrate seamlessly into a Dolby Atmos 7.2.6 system. These speakers not only boast a sleek design but also utilize old tires, further contributing to the use of recycled materials.

The design process behind Infinite Acoustics’ speaker cabinets is where the real magic happens. The company enlisted the expertise of Lostboyslab, a Swedish engineering firm specializing in 3D printing technologies, to create intricately designed geometrical patterns within the cabinets. These patterns not only enhance the aesthetics but also serve as diffusers and reinforce structural integrity, ultimately improving sound quality and durability.

In terms of development velocity, Infinite Acoustics has set an impressive track record. In just 12 months, they have developed nine different product lines. This rapid pace of innovation is made possible by their decentralized manufacturing strategy, with facilities located in Los Angeles and Sweden. This approach not only showcases the scalability of 3D printing but also reduces transportation-related emissions.

Looking ahead, Infinite Acoustics has ambitious plans for the future. They are exploring the possibility of offering digital assets via online platforms, as well as component kits for customization. Additionally, the company is considering licensing their production systems to other micro-factories, enabling local market penetration and further reducing transportation emissions.

The work of Infinite Acoustics highlights the potential of 3D printing in achieving both sustainability and localized manufacturing. As more micro-factories and recycled materials become prevalent, the industry may experience a shift towards more environmentally friendly and decentralized production systems.
