Music lovers know that a good song or beat transcends the aural sense, and the Subsonic Chair by John Greg Ball has been created to give form to the effect of that deep feeling.

The engineer behind this innovative object merged his two interests of car audio and furniture design to create what is essentially a sound system for sitting. The recliner's shape is dictated by the two flanking 16-inch subwoofers that take a whopping 1,000 watts of power.

The idea for this mammoth moveable was conceptualized a few years ago, but the concrete prototype for the speaker and seat hybrid is brand new. Now existing as a palpable piece, the Subsonic Chair by John Greg Ball reveals the way it's experience through touch and sound like thunder.
