Precision. Control. Dynamics.

These are the pillars the Founder Series was built on. 

Fire and ice, oil and water, Yankees and Mets fans. Some things just don’t mix. But what if form and function could? Every once in a while, something special comes along and changes the rules. The perfect blend of technology, design, and performance. At the start of the development, we knew one thing, when Art Embraces Science anything is possible, and we exceeded our wildest expectations.

Founder is no ordinary loudspeaker. Every component, large and small, was scrutinized down to the tiniest detail. Every component has been thoroughly researched, designed, engineered, exclusively for Founder’s. New patent pending technologies were developed for the acoustic platform. The new cabinet platform is not just a stunning design, the unique shape and integrated structural bracing delivers acoustic performance that cannot be matched by traditional square boxes. By leaving no element unaddressed, Founder’s is so much more than the sum of its parts.

During our exhaustive research, design, and engineering process, we looked closely and carefully at how speakers interact with their environment. The contemporary home environment presents design challenges that have become even more prominent over the last decade. Stone, glass, and wood have become the materials of choice and open concepts dominate. Founder’s design has evolved with this trend and is perfectly suited to deliver its maximum performance in rooms that would challenge traditionally designed speakers. Whether you enjoy movies and music in a more traditional listening space, or your home is from the pages of Architectural Digest you can be sure Founder will sound as good as they look. 

AL-MAC™ High-Frequency Driver

The Founder’s tweeter is a 1" (25mm) Aluminum Magnesium Ceramic (AL-MAC™) dome with a proprietary Oblate Spherical Waveguide (OSW™) and a Perforated Phase-Aligning (PPA™) Lens.

 

AL-MAG™ Midrange Driver

The Founder’s midrange is a 6" (152mm) Aluminum Magnesium (AL-MAG™) cone with Perforated Phase-Aligning (PPA™) Lens, Advanced SHOCK-MOUNT™ Isolation Mounting System, and a 2” high-temp multi-layered voice coil with ventilated Apical™ former.

 

Beautiful Premium-Grade Finishes

Founder Series cabinets are offered in a variety of beautiful premium-grade finishes: Walnut and Black Walnut have a smooth satin finish with distinctive wood figuring. Our exclusive Midnight Cherry and Piano Black feature a luxurious hand-rubbed, high-gloss finish.

Ultra-High-Excursion CARBON-X Unibody Bass Driver

The Founder’s Bass driver is a 6” (152mm), 7” (177mm) or 8” (215mm) Ultra-High-Excursion Unibody CARBON-X™ Cone, over-molded Gen3 Active Ridge Technology (ART™) Surround with Vertical Mounting System, Advanced SHOCK-MOUNT™ Isolation and a 1.5” high-temp multi-layered voice coil with ventilated Apical™ former.

ADVANCED Shock-Mount™ Feet

Founder Floorstanding Speakers include Advanced Shock-Mount™ Feet which decouple the cabinet from the floor, not just once, but twice, for extremely effective vibration decoupling. Interchangeable hardware is included for both carpet and hard surfaces. The feet can be adjusted from above to level the cabinet with ease.

 

ADVANCED Shock-Mount™ System

The Founder Series midrange and bass drivers are mechanically decoupled from the front baffle by our Advanced SHOCK-MOUNT™ Isolation Mounting System. This special mounting hardware uses an elastomer suspension to prevent any transfer of vibration from the driver to the cabinet, and from the cabinet to the driver. By eliminating resonance, the driver is free to render sound purely and efficiently with no audible distortion and maximum clarity.

 

Cascade-Fusion Bracing

Cascade-Fusion Bracing inside Founder Series’ faceted cabinets increase rigidity and break up standing low-frequency waves. This delivers much tighter bass with greater clarity and accuracy. All bracing is extensively reinforced, making the cabinet into a monolith stronger than the sum of its parts. The inherent strength of the geometric cabinet profile distributes the load points across a larger cabinet area providing greater support and rigidity than can be achieved with traditional square cabinet geometry.
