Somebody in Italy takes seriously the comparison between the sound of a V12 and the symphonies of classical orchestras. In Modena, home of italian supercars, visionary entrepreneur Matteo Panini had the idea of patenting a prototype of a revolutionary Hi-Fi System with a very particular look.
He thought about fusing the efficiency of a high quality audio dock and the appeal and intrinsic beauty of a racing car’s exhaust manifold. Designed by his friend Mirco Pecorari, Ixoost systems are not just music speakers with a cool, weird appearence: the aluminium pipe’s interweaving fulfil a sound box function, giving your favourite song a unique and inimitable nuance.
‘’It’s not actually the supercar I wanted to build since I was a child’’, declared Mr Panini, ‘’but Ixoost systems enclose all the passion, the craftmanship, the design, the personality, the attention to detail and the philosophy of the cars which here in Modena are produced’’.
Ixoost actually produce several models including a wheel-looking one, results of a partnership with Pirelli, available with different tread patterns, one in partnership with Lamborghini, the Esavox, which is the leading product, and the Radial6, inspired by classic single propeller aircrafts, equipped with suggestive radial engines indeed.
Enzo Ferrari used to say: ’’The sound of a V12 engine needs to be listened as you would listen to a symphony’’; Herbert Von Karajan, one of the greatest conductors of all time, said that the sound of a Ferrari’s 12 cylinder is a melody that no composer in the world would ever been able to reproduce. For a real petrolhead, Ixoost represents a pure emotional and sensory experience, involving, of course, hearing but nonetheless touch, thanks to the high quality racing materials, and sight, because of their unconventional beauty.
