Snell Acoustics was founded in 1976 by Peter Snell. Snell designs and manufactures critically acclaimed loudspeakers for virtually every application. Indeed, Snell employs a unique method of design called "In Concept", whereupon its acclaimed home loudspeakers are re-designed for applications such as in-wall, etc.
Snell has employed some of the industry's most celebrated loudspeaker designers, including Kevin Voecks (now of Revel), and Joseph D'Appolito, creator of the D'Appolito Array loudspeaker design. Among its many other achievements, Snell helped to pioneer THX loudspeakers for the home.
Notable Snell Acoustics products include:
