Far too many speaker docks for Apple products are boring black boxes. These hand-built aluminum docks shaped like the exhaust pipes from hot rods are some of the most creative we’ve seen in awhile.
Designed in Italy, iXoost docks come in three models: eight cylinders, 10 cylinders, and 12 cylinders. The eight- and 10-cylinder models both have two 28mm tweeters, two 25mm mid-ranges, a 100mm sub, and a 200mm sub—the latter model is larger in size. The 12-cylinder model adds a third tweeter, midrange, and 100mm sub.
But what really sets these hot rods apart is their gorgeous design that’s available in a variety of anodized finishes and leather trims. The price of these things is still unknown, but considering that each piece is a custom build—they’re modeled on hot rods after all—we expect that price varies by how badass you want your dock to be.
