" The Hive speakers were created from the wish to have a “wall of sound” when watching movies or listening to music. The modular system means that you can have one, or fill a whole wall with them.
By hiding all the electrical wiring inside the wall mounted frame, the amount of cables are reduced to one, containing both audio and electricity.
The speakers can be extended and pivoted independently, and can be used in digital surround systems."

"Hive is a simulated surround sound speaker system. The Hive takes the latter approach but adds in a bit of design since sound bars are pretty boring. The hexagonal honey comb pattern is graphic, bold, and each cell can pivot or turn for a truly customized audible experience. And don’t worry about messy cables or cords. The Hive only has 2 at most – one for power, and one to connect to your home entertainment system."

Hive is a simulated surround sound speaker system. As of now the market only has two options – either spread speakers around the room for the real experience or invest in a sound bar which usually consists of a long bar housing anywhere between 8-30 small speakers pointing in every direction for a simulated experience.

"Speaker systems are normally quite dull, so when something unique like HIVE’s modular speaker system comes around, I think it’s worth writing about.
Due to it’s modular design, you can have as many of these speakers as you like, from a single one to an entire wall full, which no doubt would be pricey but would look like the bee’s knees.
The frame that holds the speakers allows for speakers position and angle to be adjusted individually, allowing you to sculpt your new piece of art. Shown in the picture is a single red speaker, not sure if this is a indication they’ll come in a range of colours, but to suit the decor of any home, that’d be a good idea.
You can also configure the speakers in a surround sound environment. If your after speakers with a difference, then consider the HIVE modular speaker system. No word on price."
