Too bad those XBOOMs are a complete letdown. Just go for a product from JBL, Harman/Kardon, Dockin or, hell, even Sony, even if their battery management system is cancer.

I would like to point out at 2:50 when you talk about powered speakers is slightly incorrect.
Powered speakers have one amplifier for the whole unit. and have a passive crossover. Capacitors and coils in most cases.
Active speakers have active crossover and a dedicated amplifier for each driver in the unit.

Was hoping to see more of the production process, like how the speakers or enclosures being made too. The video really just focused on the driver boards. Plus where are the employees, where is the owner/manager/company representative to say hi and help walk you through it all? The facility just looked like a ghost town.

Super hi-fi $100k speakers....aaaand a shitty bluetooth speaker not capable of even basically accurate sound reproduction due to the data limitations of Bluetooth and the overall small/incorrect design of the enclosure.

A company board makes bad decisions, lays off most of their employees as a result (and while being total jerks) and then spends the rest of their budget on marketing in a last gamble. It's sad.

7:46 I just thought of a way of making PCB manufacturing a lot easier.
if they were made in zero-g you could put surface mount components on both sides without the underside components falling off cuz the solder melted it loose.
this is why we need manufacturing and Industry in outer space.

yo my boy u said "the folks at Meridian© are proud to bring better sound quality to the rest of us as well, who can't afford six figure speaker(full quote 2:10 - 2:19)" like you are "the rest of us". You got an estimated net worth of $15,000,000. I have no idea if that figure is the purported worth of Linus Media Group or if it is your personal estimated net worth. Point is, you could afford just about anything you want. YOU ARE KILLING IT!!!

How It's Made Nerd Addition is way better when hosted by Tech Jesus but this was still a really cool video. At first I was like, "Who the Hell would pay that much for a speaker?" But then U was like, "Oh wow, they do pretty much everything in house!" Trust me, if you have the money to be dropping 6 figures on speaker your time is literally the most valuable possession you have & NOBODY want to waste that on the phone with a manufacturer going through the grueling RMA process on a DOA product.
