  • DIY custom speakers go hollywood?

    Lately Ive noticed that in major box office movies, there are getting to be more speakers in the scenes. I dont know if Im the only one that's noticed this. Ive noticed with Meet me at the greek has p diddy in it. HE has some speakers behind him there white and they are tappered on the sides of the enclosures.

    There are dozens or more movies that are showing off speakers in a scenes. And its like I loose thought of the scene of the movie and look at this awesome speakers in the back ground.

    Its good to see someone spicing up the scence with some of the latest builds

    Anyone notice this lately or is it just me?
    I love Diy audio, because its just me and my ideas and my shop. I can make and mold my ideas and put them to play, its an amazing thing to be able to do!!

        Yeah thats so true Its been forever since I've seen friends, and yes they are still there in my mind back in day. Diy or manf speakers either way always makes a room come together.

          It's called 'Product Placement'. Manufacturers pay big bucks to get airtime for their products.
          T'wasn't always so. Just days before the release of 'Lola' Ray Davies had to go back to the studio and dub in the words 'cherry cola' instead of the original 'Coca Cola', as some genius at Coke had denied them permission to use the name, squandering a few hundred million free advertising airplays. :(

                You're not the only one that noticed, but if that's all you noticed you missed a few. In Diddy's office, he's got those 2 pyramid shaped speakers behind him. But those 2 massive towers in front of him (amongst the people at the meeting) also look like they might be speakers. Also, in the Aldous's NY(?) apartment, there's another pair of those pyramid shaped speakers but I didn't notice if they are the same ones in Diddy's office. Also, in the fat guy (what's his name?)'s home there are a pair of see thru speakers made from glass or plexi or something. And that's only the ones I noticed, I wasn't actually looking for speakers.

                Anyway, I doubt any of these are diy.

                FWIW, Get Him To The Greek starts in 2 minutes on M-Fun channel, I'll be watching again. Can't ever get me enough Rose Byrne, I love her. Love her. Love her.

                  That was an interesting video. If you move the space in the title, it's superb ***, which (I think) was the point. The video for Dance (***) in which she features is interesting as well.

                    Song was modified for British broadcasting rules against "product placement" advertising.

                    Nothing to do with Coke at all.

                    That's why you can hear both versions!

                      Argh. Couldn't get past the first few seconds of that, the commercial that plays before it is better....

                            I always notice speakers in T.V. and movies. My name is Dwight and I have a speaker addiction.

                              I have to think that most if not all of us here share your addiction
