Death Star Home Cinema Subwoofer

`When Darth Vader decided to take over the universe, he decided he needed a really big gun…. a really very big gun indeed, a gun so big it could destroy an entire planet in a single shot. With this in mind he built the Death Star, witnesses at the time often confused it with a small moon, so you get some idea of it’s size… and colour.

In my batchelor days I decided I needed a subwoofer for my lounge, a subwoofer so powerful it could loosen fillings, shake out the colesteral from my arteries and generally make a lot of noise. It seemed to me that the Death Star, ignoring the weakness that ultimately lead to it’s complete destruction, was a pretty good design… so I made my own (with a lot of help from my then housemate).

I’m no longer a batchelor, I no longer live in a detached house in the middle of nowhere, so the subwoofer is offered here for sale.’
