Active Audio

Ever Since it was founded in 2002, Active Audio has been a people-driven venture. That venture began when Xavier Meynial, then Professor of Room Acoustics, created the company in 2002 to promote both his own research and the work of the Acoustics Laboratory of the University of Le Mans. The DGRC patent was the field in 2005 and quickly spawned the StepArray range.


The Active Audio brand is currently distributed in over 30 countries, and the network continues to grow year after year. Once again, the company moves forward by maintaining a people-oriented approach: Active Audio draws strength from a network of recognized distributors in the spirit of true partnership.

In 2016, Active Audio acquired the majority stake of APG to extend its position in the market and its offering.

The years go by, but Active Audio’s DNA remains unchanged. We mastermind cost-effective systems that are designed to make everyday life easier and provide the end-user with high-performance products boasting rock-solid reliability.
