AbstractA speaker assembly is disclosed for use on a desk or tabletop, in conjunction with a telecommunication or teleconferencing system. The assembly includes a speaker supported above a generally conical and circular base having one or more acoustically reflective surfaces angled away from the speaker. A cover or cabinet is mounted around the rear of the speaker, and the speaker is attached to the assembly by a support plate mounted within the cover. The height of the interior of the cover is approximately the same as the height of the speaker. A plurality of bushings connect the support plate to the base. Sound exits from the assembly at substantially the level of the surface upon which the assembly rests. In the prefered embodiment, the conical base has a truncated upper portion, preferably formed as an inverted conical cavity coencentric with the circular base.
