Short Story


Turn Up Speakers, founded by Siyabonga Ndwalane, is a youth owned Bluetooth speaker & Sound Bar manufacturing company. His Speakers have Aux, FM Radio, USB Port, Bluetooth connectivy and are perfect for outdoor gym sessions, as a home sound device, our music for when you are out and about. They also have great designes and an easy carry bag so can go with you everywhere. They use recycled PVC pipes from construction sites, in their small little way, decreasing the 15% waste created with construction material.


Siyabonga was struggling to find good quality speakers, as a Durban University of Technology student, that would last and that had good sound quality, ones you could ‘turn-up’ to. So he started making them. After trialing a few, he eventually landed on a design that could be carried and at the same time had maximum acoustic effect. He found the PVC pipes had the perfect dimensions for creating an acoustic environment for his speakers.


He has been developing these for six months and has just sold over 200. He manufactures 100 a month and has been featured on multiple media platforms. He is currently servicing a contract for the Durban University of Technology to solve their problem of audibility in the lecture halls. He started off selling to security guards and domestic workers, and has never forgotten the market that made him, hence why they are still affordable at R600 (R700 for a customized one).


He is raising to improve his manufacturing ability so that we can get speakers out to people much faster.
