About this project

Welcome to the club. Basswall is a high power, high quality sound system built to be invisible to the casual. The 'stealth ninja' of bluetooth speakers easily connects to any bluetooth enabled device, and doesn’t require the download of special applications. Loud enough to simulate a full studio sound system, without the bulk of many speakers. Enjoy Basswall as a speaker AND as your favorite work of art.

You choose the music. You choose the artwork. It’s that simple.

 Take a look at the design below:

“I can’t believe that from that little thing, the sound comes the way it does, it’s crazy! 

It just sounds like it’s loads of speakers around...and it isn’t!”

Basswall was brought to a local Irish Bar in Antibes and Cannes France to get feedback of the product. Genuine unsuspecting people react to seeing Basswall for the first time!

Inside Basswall is a large cavity with special sound damping material that reduces the speed of sound. This tricks the bass frequencies into thinking the cavity is much larger than it actually is. We then add a finely tuned bass port to exponentially increase the effect. In simple terms, Basswall produces “big” sound, from a “small” speaker source.

Then, All frequencies above 1000 HZ are fired upwards from four speakers on top of the Basswall, hitting the ceiling and back wall to spread in a 180 degree outwards. Again, in simple terms, It's the same principle as putting your phone in a glass to amplify the sound, but as walls are flat, no unwanted secondary reverberation occurs.

The resulting effect is truly magical.

Connecting to Basswall

Basswall connects to ANY device with a bluetooth enabled feature. No need to download custom applications or software to stream music... which means, no limitations! YouTube, podcasts, audio books, iTunes, Spotify... anything! Connect to your Basswall in three simple steps. It’s that easy!

Jamie White is an English Record Producer and Songwriter known for the “Trainspotting” film soundtrack and his work featuring Ewan McGregor. Jamie has sold over two million albums and singles with numerous top 10 and top 20 chart hits, remixes and compilations. He now lives in Cannes in the south of France where he runs his own production company working with new artists to write and produce original material.

“I wanted something that would deliver a bright, warm and powerful sound from a “frame” that can hang on a wall like a painting. It didn't exist and most bluetooth speakers are too small to be any good. Nearly all of them “sound good for their size” ...but why settle for that?

A picture that hangs on the wall takes no room, yet can be big enough to house a speaker system to sound truly amazing. I started by sketching and making acoustic calculations to try to find something that would work. After many designs, eventually I had something that I thought would have that large speaker sound I wanted. 

We built the first very basic one in the garden! I liked the look of it, but was worried about the sound quality. I searched everywhere for the right components that would deliver a great sound from a frame sized box. We listened and tweaked again and again until it was perfect. We built about five prototypes before we got it right, every time solving one more problem, or making it look or sound better.

The final product was so good, that everyone who saw it wanted one. I decided that it would be great idea to start a Kickstarter and let everyone enjoy it for themselves. I hope you enjoy what we have made. Everyone that sees a Basswall immediately loves it, and we hope you do too.”

Risks and challenges

We feel really confident that we can get a Basswall to you for the price and in the time we have set ourselves. We have made several for ourselves and they work great. We have a factory lined up that has made the trial finished versions and don't see any major snags in getting them out there.

Shipping is expensive we know but it's the absolute lowest price we can get. Basswall is a big heavy loud beast and weighs a lot. We felt we couldn't compromise the product just to knock a few dollars off the weight/shipping price. We are making the best thing we possibly can for the best price we possibly can.
