Some manufacturers try to embody a retro feel in their present-day designs. Each Tombox, on the other hand, repurposes actual discarded vintage loudspeakers, retrofitting them with modernities such as rechargeable batteries good for up to two weeks (!) of play time, a 3.5mm auxiliary cable and a large silver control dial. Available in 2 general sizes: handle-equipped portable models, or the heavier, wheel mounted Tombox+ line. Both share a strangely appealing cable management system in the form of wrap-around metal knobs rounds and a penchant for kickstarting conversations.
