BassNation Audio Goes to Kickstarter for Launching the BlackBox

Audio Pioneer Needs Your Help to Fund the "BlackBox" Project

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 12, 2012) - The BlackBox is an audio system that has real loud and clear audio for less than half the price of the competition. Steffen Meeks has over 28 years of industry experience and was dissatisfied with the audio offerings in the marketplace. "I wanted an American-designed audio system that was very unique and not another 'me-too' product," says Meeks. Steffen recruited an engineering team that has over three decades of experience designing audio platforms for famous brands to create the BlackBox.

The final prototype BlackBox is a high power 50-watt amplified loudspeaker system that can connect to any audio/video device, such as a TV, iPod, MP3 player, laptop computer and gaming console. With the 12 volt power adapter, it can also be used in cars, trucks, RVs and SUVs. The BlackBox is a retro design made from wood and metal parts that is similar to other high quality, professional and concert loudspeaker systems. The BlackBox incorporates dual 6.5" woofers coupled with the wooden enclosure and digital amplifier which produces a much louder and clearer sound. At a $299 retail price the BlackBox is hundreds of dollars less than similar major brand systems made of plastic that can cost $400-$600.

Steffen is going to Kickstarter to help fund a delivery of units from the manufacturer. Kickstarter campaigns operate under an "all-or-nothing" funding model so if the BlackBox project doesn't reach its goal then it might be years before you'll see it on the market. To follow their project, be sure to find them on Twitter (@BassNationAudio) and Facebook and spread the word to your social media networks. Consider donating as little as $1 to help their project come to life. If you decide to donate more, you might be among the first in the world to listen to loud and clear audio with a BassNation BlackBox.
