Athena Technologies is a sister line from Audio Products International (API) created to compliment Energy and Mirage. API was known best for Energy Speakers but quietly made a lot of speakers for other companies in what's called an OEM relationship. Athena was often the lower priced counterpart, though offered good sound and value for the money.
Current products include the Athena LS line, the Athena Audition Series, and the Athena Micra 6 system.
In 2006 Klipsch bought API, and though Athena continued to offer speakers, it languished next to its more popular brand-mates. In 2011 Klipsch was bought by Audiovox, known as the place good brands go to die.
