If your style is sleek and modern these aren’t for you. But if you’re drawn to the well-worn, obviously aged, and nowhere-near-perfect items that look like they have a story to tell, these repurposed Visonik David 6000 speakers will be just the ticket! They’re secret boxes now but they were once a great little German-made shelf speaker.
Looking absolutely normal on the outside, you can easily open the front grill to reveal that I have gutted the electronics and added a removable shelf to each interior. Hang ’em on the wall or display them on a shelf and add your most secret stuff. Store old love letters, extra cash, jewelry, mementos, and your biggest treasures — and only you will know what hides inside. They’re the perfect industrial decor item, man cave accessory or garage safe-box.
Visonik sold a range of David Series speakers in the 1970/80s. The metal housing and grills and the suede-like finish made them stand out from the wood veneer cabinets of their competitors. Unfortunately, although the NEXTEL®-Suede Coating gave a warm soft feel it did not age well with the surface becoming slightly rough and worn.
You can see from the photos that these speakers have exterior wear and use marks and even though I have cleaned them, I did not make any effort to remove the imperfections that were accumulated along their journey. The interiors are very clean.
Each speaker measures measures 7.5″ high x 5″ wide x 5.25″ deep.
