Big speakers, big sound, big price

This system will make you feel tiny.


If you're going to spend a ton of money, we always say, you might as well have something to show for it. And that's exactly what this speaker system provides, which is a tall order given that it costs $380,700.

We've actually seen larger and more expensive audio systems (try $1 million), but they often end up resembling something like sound walls more than anything else. The "Sphäron Excalibur" from Germany's Acapella, however, truly looks the part: It's like a cross between an old-fashioned gramophone and Audrey, the gigantic man-eating plant from The Little Shop of Horrors.

Bearing four 15-inch woofers each, these monsters stand more than 7.5 feet tall and weigh 1,364 pounds apiece, according to BornRich, which adds that they're "accessible in any automotive finish." How appropriate, considering that they're about the size of a small car anyway.
