This project focused on creating a product line that would be a signature style statement for personal and corporate spaces by combining home theatre speakers and furniture. It aimed to enhance user experience and reduce the overall cost of the set up thus benefiting both the customers and the businesses. After thorough research on speakers, we found that there were three major segments to the speaker design process—drivers, crossovers, and enclosures. This project is focused not only on the individual products but mainly on the complete setup working together, which requires better speakers with an accurate placement in the listening environment. In a home theatre system, the speakers are placed around the viewer to create a realistic listening experience, accordingly, the furniture and speaker combinations were finalised. After ideation, online meetings were held with sound engineers who helped with the technical inputs towards the creation of this new product line.
