Luca Scalea – Inflabass

Setting up a sound system for an event requires considerable logistical resources. One element in particular takes up a lot of storage and transport space since it is filled with air. Why not deflate it?

The Inflabass project completely redesigns the PA subwoofer using a new material previously reserved for water sports. When inflated, its large size increases the sound quality as well as its performance, which considerably reduces its power consumption. To dismantle it, the electronic part, contained in a small, easy-to-handle box, can be removed in a single movement. The rest of the structure deflates and can then be folded and rolled up to save as much space as possible and make transport easy.
