Categories , Brand:

Founder is no ordinary loudspeaker. We’ve treated every part, large and small, as if it were the most crucial piece of the whole. Every component has been thoroughly researched, designed, engineered, and tested. Not only are the drivers completely new, so is their mounting hardware, the cabinet’s internal structure and shape, and even the feet. By leaving no element unaddressed, we’ve created something that is much greater than the sum of its parts.
