When not in use, the Tembo Trunks fold in on themselves for stackable storage and can be popped out when needed
The Tembo Trunks are said to triple the volume, which probably won't raise anyone's roof but should be enough for some intimate sonic sharing

An essential part of my travel kit is my digital music player. I also carry a small set of speakers in case I want to share some tunes with those I meet along the way, but I'm forever having to worry about batteries and, despite their size, it's all extra weight to have to lug around. I need some fold-away, lightweight, power-free amplification, and that's precisely what the Tembo Trunks speakers offer. The creation of brothers Scott and Mike Norrie, the horn speakers are said to have been born out of frustration in not having an external iPod speaker that was small and light enough to travel with them around Africa.
