I asked my AI friend to design (visual - not technical) some cool speakers

I think it did an admirable job!

It might be at least as much fun, or more, to ask 'em to design loudspeakers technically. :)
Might see some innovative crossover topologies.
:)
In my experience, a lot of the AI tools open to the public are really just good at connecting dots between already well-understood concepts akin to interpolation. Asking it to design something new and innovative would require something we might not have at the moment.

Those are stunning designs. Someone should copy them!
Totally agree! I absolutely love this scalop here. It's purely decorative - but what a lovely scultural feature!

And here - I imagine this forming a port and downward facing port flare! Really cool!

Reminds me of these.

Should ask it to design a modern LS50, LS3/5a, JBL L100 or Meyer Sound Bluehorn to see how it might take something visually distinct and modify it.

Maybe even asking it what a JBL L100 would look like if it was made by Estelon or Ferrari or _______.

I like that top one with the little man in a canoe.

Those bottom ones are a stone cold twin of Estelons, I agree.

Not bad. Much nicer than many modern real life ones. I like the concept of in-molded legs so that they are extensions of the cabinet and you can have a proper bass-reflex port or passive radiator hidden underneath at the same time.

I did try (in a very cursory way) to get it to redesign the Quad ESL-57 for the modern age... But... it wasn't picking up what I was putting down, and largely doing whatever it wanted.

If this evening I have some time, I will try to train it a bit on some images and see if it will do something like "modern versions of speakers of our past". However - I am not holding up much hope; as it only has "general" understanding of what a speaker is - and in this case we are looking for a "specific" understanding.

It did get me thinking; do any of these cloth dome tweeters really need to be black? It would be anice design to make that dome a different colour, but I try not to get too clittoral ;-) about it.

The vintage Meyer Sound HD-1 had a green soft dome for the tweeter.

How do they measure? :p

...I do like functional art* more than "museum-art" but I'm also economically-minded and I can see that more money and/or time would go into the appearance than the functionality.

If I had the money I might buy a pair of "art speakers" (I don't have the talent to build them), but I wouldn't use them in my main system.



*I like hot rods and if I had the money I'd own one (or more). To me, that's art! You can buy a hot rod for the price of a modern car (or less), but I'd want modern functionality and reliability and that pushes the price up.

really nothing special - just started with "a futuristic speaker, tall and slender, with a waveguide around the tweeter, on a plain background" it did the rest
Nice thought project. Which Ai did you use? Many can't create images from text.
