Building on the success of the Minipod – the original curvy loudspeaker – Danish company Scandyna has developed a new floorstanding design Megapod. It takes a Minipod and adds the substantial Megapod bass unit, connecting the two via an aluminium arm.
The Megapod bass unit is a subwoofer with a 250mm bass driver. All the cables connecting the Minipod to the Megpod bass unit are concealed within the hollow arm that connects the two sections together. The physical separation of the Minipod from the Megapod bass unit helps to ensure that vibrations caused by the bass section do not adversely affect the generation of higher frequencies by the Minipod.
Existing Minipod owners can upgrade their speakers to floorstanding Megapods by purchasing the Megapod bass kit.
