iXoost dock is a handmade high performance sound system for your iPhone

iXoost

The iPhone can certainly be classed as a top performer in the smart phone world so why not pop it into a dock made from the exhaust system of a high performance car. The iXoost dock is handmade and the base is made from a solid block of aluminium. It then incorporates a performance cars manifold which is turned and milled into a shiny work of art.

The name iXoost comes from the English pronunciation of the word “exhaust”, the first dock station dreamed up by Matteo Panini and designed by Mirco Pecorari. Mechanics and sound come together thanks to the tradition evoked by the world of engines. The docks are colourful, finished with high-quality leather coupled with the exhaust manifolds to create fantastic combinations which are a pleasure for the heart as much as for the eye. Listen to your music through extremely innovative loudspeakers featuring a 140W active subwoofer.

The iXoost is available in three models, V8, V10 and V12 with varying amounts of high end speakers and tweeters to satisfy audiophiles everywhere. So if you are a petrol head, love your iPhone and like listening to music, this is your perfect iPhone dock. No information on the price of these docks but we don't expect them to be in the budget range.

The name iXoost comes from the English pronunciation of the word “exhaust”
I'm not sure how they get that. "Exhaust" is pronounced in English as
ex-awst
I don't think I've ever heard any English person pronnounce it "ixoost". Scottish, perhaps, but not English.

I am going to assume that while the name fits the description. it is not really meant for the pronunciation.. I am assuming the "i" in both the iPhone and iXoost have something to do with it.. Could be way off base though..

Very cool - but I hope the had the foresight to make a replacable connector to the iPhone/iPod. I wonder if Apple has given any mini connector specs to accesory makers yet? The iHome folks and thier competitors must be both thrilled at the long term due to the prospect of new sales once new iOS devices are released, AND concerned about the short term as putting out new accesories that connect to current devices is very risky and could lead to customer backlash come fall.

Well Chris, looks like something you could put in an ac system, and have music piped all over the house through he duct system.
It does look more like a work of art. Too bad we cannot hear how it sounds.

Thanks for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research about this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I'm very glad to see such wonderful information being shared freely out there.
