Check out the beautiful wood creations at Salvage Audio. Great work, Friends!
TIMES HAVE CHANGED…
It’s obvious everywhere. Some change has been welcomed, new technology has made our lives more convenient and more productive. On the other hand, changes to product production and design, for the majority, has left us with cheap, plastic mass production, products with a lifespan closer to carnival gold fish, than a heirloom.
THIS DECAY OF THE UNIQUE…
It’s amazingly apparent in the home audio industry. The good brings amazing tech to the table, with wireless Bluetooth, internet radio, and compact systems that sound as good as our parents “entertainment centers” that filled a quarter of the living room. The bad substitutes quality for profits, producing an army of basic & cheap, molded plastic repetition. But worst of all, stripped of individuality. Something that reproduces one of the most individual & unique forms, music.
WE ARE NOT BASIC OR FOR THE MASSES…
We remember what quality craftsmanship means. We strive to blend the unique character of old wood and modern design, with the sound quality and convenience of new tech. Each of our speakers is handcrafted at our shop, here on the Central Coast of California, just for you.

I picked up some great-looking 60’s vintage Allied cabinets a while back with nice 15″ woofers, a damaged crossover and two bad Jensen Sonodome tweeters. Wanted to get them working again, but didn’t want to drop a lot of cash on components, so the project kept getting pushed aside. Well, sometimes the Universe gives you a gift. The other day, I found a pair of beat up little Jensens at a thrift store for two bucks. Didn’t know what they had in them, but for the price… Turns out these ugly cabs held a pair of pristine, fully-functioning Sonodomes and nearly identical crossovers to the Allieds. Didn’t take long to decide to sacrifice the two-dollar Jensens for the greater good. Was even able to use the 10″ Jensen woofers to restore some solid Pressage 2-ways that had also been collecting dust. Coming soon. Cheers, ~L
