I Found the Best Pot in Colorado during CEDIA Expo
I found the best pot in Denver during the CEDIA Expo and it was not at a local marijuana dispensary. It was a Madison Fielding planter speaker blasting out tunes.

With all due respect to any other CEDIA Expo 2014 attendees last week in Denver, I found the best pot in Colorado… the land of legalized marijuana.
It was in the Madison Fielding sound room at the Colorado Convention Center. The venerable company’s booth was being manned by principals Art Powers, Sr. and Art Powers, Jr. Using an array of its outdoor planter speakers disguised at flower pots, the duet entertained attendees with a combination of tunes ranging from Frank Sinatra to Pink Floyd.
The company’s terra cotta/granite planter speakers are made of durable U/V rated polyethylene from custom molds and imported from Italy. They look like the real thing. The high quality weather-proof 6-inch marine speaker is concealed from view. The company’s high-end speakers range as high as $3,995 per pair for its Flagstone units with a 10-inch woofer on the bottom, a 4-inch mid-range and a 1-inch tweeter.
Its Mini Flagstones ($2,595/pair) are similar in design to the larger version but with an 8-inch woofer and smaller mid-range. The company also makes a Terracotta Series that has an Italian design and comes with an ornate stand, and several wood box versions of the Planter Speakers.
So, yes, it was the “best sounding pot” I have ever had.
