PANL1 Speaker System By VETR Audio | Ditch The Box

If you missed our Kickstarter, you can pre-order a PANL1 system now!

 

 


The VETR Audio PANL1

The VETR Audio PANL1 is a stereo speaker system like no other.

Its strikingly innovative design will catch eyes and complement any modern space. The centerpiece of each speaker is a twill carbon fiber panel, only 1.3mm thick, which provides crisp, natural sound. Our stands are 100% stainless steel, finished with a beautiful brushed surface. With a slim design and intelligent sizing, the PANL1 can fit into almost any space – whether at your computer desk, home theater TV, or in the living room.

 

 

The PANL1 was designed from the ground up to fit into a sleek, modern world. Unlike the boxy, bulky speakers saturating the market today, ours seek to change the way audio is seen. With unparalleled thinness and a propensity for grabbing attention, the PANL1 will make a bold statement as part of any entertainment system, or as an audio system standing on its own.

 

Acoustic details come shining through with clarity rivaling even the most high-end audiophile setups. The PANL1 speakers fill your room with beautifully clear sound whether you’re listening to acoustic recordings, watching action movies, or playing the latest games. Our low-profile subwoofer provides deep low notes and room-filling bass in a package that can be easily hidden under your desk or next to your TV. And because it’s tuned to perform perfectly with the PANL1 speakers, the whole sound range will seem to come from our slim bookshelf speakers – clear and precise, at any volume.

 

By backing us and choosing a reward, you'll be set to receive a system by our shipping date. Because our R&D is essentially complete, manufacturing and assembly lined up, and logistics in place, you are in essence placing a pre-order.

 

The PANL1 speakers and subwoofer have been designed to work best with each other. Because of the unique sound signature of the speakers, the subwoofer is tuned to complement them for full, rich sound. We recommend the complete system for most users.

If you're an audiophile with an existing amplifier, speaker system, and subwoofer(s), we do offer the PANL1 speakers a la carte. They make an excellent addition as surround speakers, left and right channels, or simply as stereo bookshelf speakers for incredibly crisp, beautiful sound.

 

At the most fundamental level, every speaker uses electricity to vibrate a surface, producing sound. The PANL1 shares only this concept; the similarities end there. An average set of stereo speakers has just 17 square inches of area to reproduce sound; ours have 132. Typical stereo speakers have just 20 watts of output power per channel; ours have 48. Regular bookshelf speakers can be 6 inches thick; ours are less than 1.

Our design is like nothing else. From the first brainstorming sessions, initial sketches, and early proofs of concept nearly two years ago, we have strived to create a minimalist, bold design that performs. Reactions to our speakers range from "These are amazing" to, simply, "wow." Our main goal, the overarching principal that we adhered to, has always been "Change the way people see audio." With the PANL1, we plan to achieve that.


Back us, share us, and let's make it happen!

Risks and challenges

Our primary challenge is reducing production times of the subwoofer. We are working with our suppliers to help streamline the process and reduce turnaround times; several solutions exist, and it's simply a matter of picking a manufacturing method that results in the most efficient production while maintaining the highest quality.

Our second challenge is finding or creating a space large enough to keep pace with the amount of orders we receive. A living room and garage provide ample space for small orders, but to ensure streamlined processes and on-time delivery for larger volumes, a dedicated office and warehouse is needed. Fortunately this issue is easily resolved: Phoenix has an ample supply of warehouse and commercial office space. Finding the right space to meet the demands of our backers is a simple matter of picking the best one.

While there are challenges we will face, we see very little in the way of potential risks. We have multiple suppliers or partners at the ready for all components of the PANL1 speakers, subwoofer, and even the packaging and shipping. The R&D has already been done; we have a fully functional design prototype which was assembled using the same processes we plan to use for the complete units sent to backers. Because of these, we see very little risk of non-delivery.
