The advent of a speaker that would mount flush into the wall or ceiling changed the way we listen to music. It’s an incredible story, a story that began in the back room of a small retail stereo shop in Riverside, California in 1976.
Ken Humphreys and Ed Haase were two 20 year audio enthusiasts who wanted to solve the problem that box speakers created; room clutter. The result was the invention of the in-wall speaker. The first audio system that moved the speakers off the floor and into the wall while maintaining the performance music lovers had come to demand. This revolutionary idea combined musical accuracy and a virtually invisible visual aesthetic that has forever changed the world of high quality sound throughout the home. This became the birth of an entire industry. One that would find itself delivering home theaters and music systems discreetly secreted away in some of the most prestigious residences in the world.
