First glance and they look like really tall vases in your living room, but nope they are the Altec Lansing OMNI; a pair of omni-directional speakers. A heavy construction ensures lesser vibrations and superior sound quality. Each structure houses a woofer, a mid-range speaker and the tweeter on the top. The three of them don't get into a fight coz they are shielded from each other via a ceramic plate. Since a cone sits on the top of each speaker, it distributes the sound equally in all directions. A big Omni party in there!
