The Issues We Solve Through Audio Equipment Engineering

An objective, data-based audio engineering process resolves many issues, including:

  • Speakers that sound harsh and fail at high SPLs.
  • Amplifiers that clip, damaging speakers.
  • Subwoofers that distort and fail to reproduce all bass frequencies evenly.

We stop you:

  • Spending hours trying to pick audio components for your room based on subjective online or magazine reviews.
  • Wasting money on equipment that doesn’t meet the dispersion or SPL requirements of your room and application.
  • Being frustrated that your system’s performance doesn’t meet your expectations.

The Benefits Of Audio Equipment Engineering

  • Experience audio like never before.
  • Get the best sounding and best performing audio equipment for your budget. 
  • Ensure your speakers, subwoofers and amplifiers meet the objective engineering requirements of YOUR room.

What’s Included?

Acoustic Frontiers’ Audio Equipment Engineering services help you choose the right speakers, subwoofers, and electronics for your listening room, home theater, or home recording studio. We’re not just trying to sell you boxes—we have an objective and comprehensive approach to assembling the ideal audio system for your room, needs, performance aspirations, and budget. And we have deep knowledge of the best products on the market for the specific and varied applications of home theater, high-end audio, and home recording studios.


Here’s how it works:

  • Select speakers. Once we have your room layout, we know where the speakers go, the distance from the listening seats, and how far they are off-axis. From this information, we can calculate the dispersion and output required to hit a target SPL. These calculations allow us to select speakers that meet the engineering requirements of the room, as well as the form factor and budget needs.
  • Choose amplifiers. After speakers are selected, we know how many Watts of power is required to drive them to target SPL levels. Using that information, we'll select amps to meet the numbers, as well as your budget goals.
  • Identify subwoofers. After the number of subs and their locations are finalized, we simulate the frequency response at each listening seat using Boundary Element Modeling (BEM) techniques and calculate the SPL output required to hit targets at each frequency. Subs can then be selected to meet those requirements using published SPL output test data such as CEA-2010.

What You’ll Get

  • List of speakers, subwoofers, AVRs and amplifiers used in your design to meet engineering requirements.
  • Documented calculations showing amplifier power required per speaker to hit SPL targets.
  • Documented calculations showing comparison of SPL output for the subs and speakers specified in your design vs. requirements.

What Do Our Clients Think?

“Several years ago, I installed an expensive home theater in my family room. The system never performed at the level I expected for the price paid. I hired Acoustic Frontiers to evaluate my audio system, and together we implemented several changes. I cannot underestimate the before and after difference. My wife, who has little patience for appreciating subtle, iterative improvements in performance, instantly appreciated the benefits and deemed them well worth the cost.”

Mr. Bransten, San Francisco, CA

"Acoustic Frontiers were very patient and helpful when it came to selecting speakers and equipment for the room. As a vendor for a multitude of companies, I really felt that I was getting objective advice. They helped me select everything from the speakers, AVR,  to even the projector and screen! The end result was nothing short of amazing, and my family and I couldn’t be more thrilled. Acoustic Frontiers receives my highest recommendation. We can’t thank you all enough!”
