Most speakers use electromagnets to vibrate air to create the sound waves that you hear. The ARC Plasma Speaker creates sound waves by ionizing the air with a 30,000 volt electric arc. It's pretty awesome.
The ARC Plasma Speaker Basic Kit comes unassembled and includes all the components you need to build a fully functional ARC Plasma Speaker!
