Madisound becomes Sponsor at HTS

I know most of our DIY members and readers are very familiar with Madisound. We are excited to announce they are now an official sponsor of Home Theater Shack.



Madisound Speaker Components, Inc is a private employee-owned company located in Middleton, Wisconsin USA. Madisound offers a variety of electrical components and engineering services pertaining to loudspeaker design and construction. Madisound provides loudspeakers and advice to both retail and wholesale customers worldwide.

Company History
Madisound began as a small franchise of Lafayette Radio Electronics Corporation, established in 1972 by Lawrence Hitch in Madison Wisconsin USA. Madisound began as a modest electronics service facility and continued to expand into distribution. Early loudspeaker brands distributed by Madisound included Amperex (Phillips), Polydax (Audax), Becker, Dynaudio, Kef, Peerless, Seas and JVC. Madisound is now considered one of the major sources for individual loudspeaker parts, globally.

In 2001, Madisound reorganized as an S-Corporation giving the employees joint-ownership.

Madisound was one of the first companies to host a dedicated discussion forum. On Madisound's Audio Projects BBS, they used to archive the messages posted on another BBS, called The Audiophile Network, which at the time was being run on an Apple IIe. The "message area" was basically just a long text file where new messages were simply appended to the end. People would phone it from all over the world at 300, 1200 and 2400 baud and download small box and crossover design programs.

Madisound has been a source for and engaged participant in the DIY speaker community for over 35 years.

Madisound has a lot to offer:
  • They sell raw speaker drivers, speaker building supplies, speaker cabinets, and crossover supplies. More.
  • They offer a speaker replacement service so you can replace broken or damaged speakers. More.
  • They offer design assistance to help new audio enthusiasts build their own speaker project. Just call or email us. More.
  • They offer speaker kits for those new to speaker building, and those wanting to build a known and well-designed project. More.
  • They offer crossover design and crossover assembly as services. More.
Please join me in welcoming Madisound as a new sponsor!

Awesome. My first DIY speaker project was my original NHT 1259 subwoofer -- purchased from Madisound about 13 years ago.

Welcome to HTS, Madisound. What a great company history, I love that they had an online discussion forum before most people knew what a computer was. Great to see another big name in the industry join us here at The Shack.
