Peachtree Audio Launches Speaker Crowdfunding Campaign
Peachtree Audio on Monday will lunch a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo for its latest product, which it calls deepblue2 - The Ultimate Bluetooth Speaker. The successor to the original deep blue, the deep blue 2 is described by the company as "a fully active 3-way loudspeaker with electronic crossovers and a built-in 440-watt five channel amplifier squeezed into a single 1/2 cubic foot enclosure."
The first 250 backers of the project will be able to purchase the deepblue2 for $249, compared with its retail price for around $500. And those pledging $1,000 will become beta testers for the speaker, receiving a pre-production version.
“A lot of people buy wireless speakers for their convenience and ease of use. But what’s always missing is great sound quality and deep bass.” Jonathan Derda, Peachtree’s "Ambassador of Awesome," said as part of the announcement of the effort.
