Cabot Acoustics started in the fall of 2013 as a collaborative venture between my son and I. We decided to try our hand at combining fine furniture quality speaker cabinets with the latest in full range loudspeaker technology.
As a cabinet maker of over 25 years and a life long music lover I was intrigued by the idea of building loudspeakers that where a change from the generic black boxes found at most retail locations. My son and I had the pleasure of spending an afternoon with Mark Fenlon of Mark Audio and after some great conversation and lots of listening, decided to turn our hobby of building loudspeakers into a business, and as such Cabot Acoustics was born.
Our focus has been primarily on producing single driver, full range loudspeakers. Our speaker are built one pair at a time insuring a high level of quality control and a visually unique one of a kind appearance. We felt there was a hole in the market, with single driver speakers (particularly handcrafted speakers) being less common than multi ways.
Single driver loudspeakers have a way of reproducing mid range tones with a purity and delicacy rarely heard in conventional multi-ways. By keeping the signal path uncluttered, a greater level of detail can be extracted from the recording presenting the listener with a sense of realism that is often missed with multi way speakers.
