More cube speakers: Mission’s M-Cube, based on the NXT flat panel technology that was all the rage a few years ago. Mission attempts to compensate for the lack of low-frequency output by coupling the flat panels (mounted in a cubic enclosure) with a subwoofer. All this can be yours for $2200.

The Institute of Acoustics is accepting nominations for the Award for Promoting Acoustics to the Public. From Dr. Trevor Cox’s announcement:

“With noise increasingly on the public agenda and to encourage activity to create a greater awareness of the importance of acoustics outside the acoustics fraternity, the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) is delighted to announce a new Award for Promoting Acoustics to the Public.”

“Promoting acoustics can help encourage more people to study and follow careers in acoustics. It can also help prevent acoustics being treated as a “Cinderella” subject by industry and legislators.”

Nominations will be accepted until May 31, 2005.
