If you’re tired of the same old speaker design cluttering homes across America and long for something more unique looking, you’ll want to take note of the DMT-100, a new sphere-shaped system from Proclaim Audio Works. While it’s not exactly affordable, you’ll be getting a speaker which has had a lot of thought put into it.
The Proclaim Audio Works DMT-100 consists of three spherical speakers which are mounted on arms and attached to a stand made out of fully-machined, high grade aluminum and stainless steel. The spheres are designed as such that, according to Proclaim Audio, they eliminate cabinet resonance and also allow for the correct alignment and positioning of the three drivers.

The company’s “Driver Manipulation Technology” allow you to change the system’s acoustic characteristics by orienting all six transducers. This is joined by a hand-crafted external crossover which helps to better balance stereo output. All-in-all the three drivers can be adjusted up to 45-degrees off axis, while the tweeter and mid-range speakers get up to 12-inches of vertical or horizontal flexibility for positioning.
The spherical design of the speakers is what Proclaim says is the best shape for audio reproduction because of “its characteristically smooth frequency response.” The speakers are built with two layers of fiberglass filled with a sand mixture for a denser consistency. This results in what is seen as a non-resonating enclosure that doesn’t distort the housed driver.
The Proclaim Audio Works DMT 100 speakers, which can be custom painted in a variety of color schemes, have a price of around $26,000. More details on this system can be found at the manufacturer’s Web site.
