The Plastic Speaker Project aims to stop plastic waste from going to landfills and incinerators by producing a speaker made from 100 used plastic bags. These bags are melted and compressed to create a "marble dough" which is then placed into compression molds to form the shape of the speaker. Electronic components are then inserted into the speaker's body. The plastic speaker body is recyclable and can be melted and reformed endlessly without losing its quality.
Most of the parts in the box were in good shape and of the quality expected from China. I did notice that some of the speaker's steel components were free of defects. It was also noticeable that some corners and bases were pieceless. Assembly instructions were easy to understand, but were somewhat hurried. I've read several positive reviews for this speaker, and I'm happy to report that it's a solid buy. But, be warned: the speaker is not always sturdy.
Glue will help hold the speaker frame in place. A speaker mounting adapter should be made of a material with mass, such as HDPE. A good choice is acrylic. You can also use Crazy Glue or acrylic. A speaker mounting adapter should not be made of wood, since wood can absorb water and eventually turn moldy. Make sure the glue dries thoroughly before you use the speaker. If you are able to reinstall the speaker, use an alligator clamp or a similar device to secure it.
Although plastic speaker cones are less expensive than other materials, they don't have the same characteristics as other materials. Molds can be expensive, so low sales won't cover the cost of tooling. However, the plastic speaker market would eventually replace wood speakers. Even though the majority of consumers are buying plastic speakers, they would probably prefer wood speakers for their quality and durability. So, if you're wondering whether or not you should buy a plastic speaker, here are some facts.
