{     SoundPads Stick-On Speakers     }    

In recent years there have been a lot of leaps and bounds made in speaker technology, and unless you are a complete audiophile, you must admit that if you were to go out and buy a set of speakers today, you would feel kinda silly getting a pair of those giant boxes that used to be the norm. Most speakers these days are of the bookshelf variety, packing much, much more of a punch than their predecessors, in a much, much smaller package. Thing is, my knowledge of these advances still did not prepare me for the idea that I could eliminate the speaker cabinet altogether, which is exactly what a lesser-known company called Sonic Impact is trying to tell us. Essentially Sonic Impact has eliminated all but the heart of the speaker, and instead affixed an adhesive to the back of the result so that you may stick the speaker to nearly any flat surface and turn that surface to a permanent stereo speaker. The claim that any thin-walled high-transmission surface would work, including walls, bookcases, boxes, ceiling tiles, or picture frames, automatically made me think that they would sound like crap, but after playing around with them a bit and learning what areas worked best, I must admit that I was very wrong. I ended up affixing them to the bottom of my desk so as to replace my current computer speakers and I was pleasantly surprised by the not fabulous, but still very good sound quality produced by these tiny pads. The one drawback would be that the adhesive is permanent, and although I have not removed mine and tried them anywhere else, I can assure you that it will not be easy, and I doubt that placing them elsewhere would be easy either. So in summary, the sound quality is not something you are going to be amazed by, but they by no means sound bad. If you need some decent sound somewhere that you don't want to put boxed speakers and don't intend on completely rocking out, then these will do the job, and at only $19 for a pair, they're worth every penny.

I can't help but think about how cool it would be to just stick these all over the damn place and run them all into one huge receiver. Have them all over the ceiling and the walls and shit.
It's bringing me one step closer to my dream of being covered in tiny speakers, so that "fashion" and "music" are blurred into one.
"Oh, Mr. Barraclough- What ever is that delightful song you're wearing?"
"Why darling, it's the latest from Anal Cunt. I'm surprised you're not familiar with their Fall line- they're so hot in Europe right now."
