Shipping has started!
Thanks for working with us over the last half year!
We've shipped out an initial batch of 30 of the $80 kits! If you've received them, you can Read the Assembly Instructions!
We'll be shipping more $80 kits, then the $100 assembled speakers, then $60, $40, and $20 kits.
Kits without Power Supply
If you ordered a $60 kit, you might want to know what power supply you need.
We're currently shipping a 12V 5A power supply with a connector of 5.5mm in diameter, and a 2mm contact. We include the other side of the connector with the kit so it's easy to plug in. We've seen the plasma speaker use 2-4A in normal use depending on how high you turn it on.
If you need a power supply of your own, we bought a few extras for you. If you order through this link, we can ship it with your Kickstarter order if you order before Monday night 5PM PDT.
We've started to open sales of unassembled kits as well. If you haven't yet bought a kit, and would like one, you can get one for $80. We'll be selling it for $80 until were done shipping to our original backers, and then raising the price to $100.

Pledge $5 or more
Thanks for supporting us! We'll include your name in the instruction manual as a thank you!Estimated delivery: Nov 2011
Pledge $20 or more
For $20, you get the circuit board itself. This will allow you to use your own electrical components to build your own plasma speaker (part specs will be included in the instruction manual).Estimated delivery: Nov 2011
Pledge $40 or more
For $40, you can get the printed board and the components that go in it. You will still need a 12V power supply and flyback transformer to complete the plasma speaker. This level isn't recommended if you're new to putting together circuits, since we won't be able to offer much guidance on connecting the power/transformer.Estimated delivery: Nov 2011
Pledge $60 or more
For $60 you get everything but the 12-volt power supply. This includes the printed board, electrical components and flyback transformer.Estimated delivery: Nov 2011
Pledge $80 or more
For $80, you get the complete kit - everything you need to build your own plasma speaker. This is perfect for people interested in learning more about electrical engineering first-hand.Estimated delivery: Nov 2011
Pledge $100 or more
For $100, we'll assemble the plasma speaker for you. One complete kit, delivered straight to your door.Estimated delivery: Nov 2011
Pledge $320 or more
For $320, we'll send you five kits. This is perfect if you're running a workshop or class in electrical engineering or circuit design. This is a savings of $80; essentially one free kit!Estimated delivery: Nov 2011
Pledge $400 or more
For $400, we'll send you five fully assembled speakers; a savings of $100. You could build a 5.1 surround sound system (hey, more ridiculous things have been done!), use them to demo electrical concepts to a physics class, or just leave them in the box, satisfied that you have more plasma speakers than 99.9999% of the population.Estimated delivery: Nov 2011
