"“Star Wars speakers boast fantastic sound quality, featuring full 2.1 system audio. Incased behind C-3PO and the Stormtrooper’s eyes are two tweeters and underneath a down-facing ported subwoofer delivers ground-shaking bass. Whether you want to hook up your smartphone or tablet wirelessly through Bluetooth and crank up John William’s iconic score, or plug in your console via AUX to be fully immersed in the laser blasts of Star Wars Battlefront–C-3PO and Stormtrooper speakers provide loud, crisp and superior audio.”"
These speakers definitely have the feel and look of that unique Star Wars fan collectible item. And, with the expandability of being able to plug in your smartphone for music, or your console for enhanced gameplay, these are without a doubt, a must have for any Star Wars fan.
With Disney and Lucasfilm giving AC Worldwide their official seal of approval, this doesn’t feel like your normal crowd-sourcing project. The professionalism of their campaign and the amazing finished look of C-3PO and Stormtrooper — along with the chance to get in on a limited edition — makes this an even more tantalizing project to back. I know where I’ll be spending some of my hard earned Credits.
