The Spirit is Here
The legendary sound qualities of stone are known throughout the world. Rocks, crevices and caves have traditionally been believed to be the home of spirits. The Finnish legend of Kalevala presents a Karelian ridge, whose steep vertical walls returned noises as a mystical echo. One could hear the spirit’s sounds only in certain places, and their origin was marked in rock paintings.
Modern man has resolved the mystery of both stone and the echo. Prime Loudspeakers reclaims stone’s echoing qualities to produce unique loudspeakers made of soapstone, a stone found only in the Finnish North Karelia area of Koli. Soapstone is produced during millions of years of extreme pressure. This miracle stone is quarried near the Koli National Park only for special use.
