We are creating audio solutions that are brilliantly simple, with an eco advantage. With the acoustic principles applied in the design and production of our speakers, we can enable practical economic and sustainable advantages for your company.
All NNNN speakers are designed to be applicable in several scenarios to ensure high flexibility. Thus, both small and large concerts can be set up with the same equipment, resulting in several practical and economic benefits, as in transportation, rigging and storage.
Less to transport
Countering the often large and heavy pro audio loudspeakers enables benefits like fewer cabinets needing to be carried, driven, offloaded, deployed, and disassembled. Meaning, faster and easier packaging, with less manpower.
Less to rig
Simpler setups mean that transportation and rigging could be done by fewer people in smaller and fewer trucks. This saves costs on the number of loudspeakers needed and on the personnel required to transport and set them up.
Fewer loudspeakers means quicker configuration, which results in even more time for making your customer happy! Active loudspeakers will simplify this further, ensuring that your setup is as close to plug-and-play as possible.
Creating more sustainable solutions is one
of our main motivations.
We are creating loudspeakers that are as energy-efficient as possible while being both highly practical and faithful in their audio reproduction.
Historically, power amplification has been more challenging and limited, so pro audio speakers used to be a lot more energy efficient than they are today. With the invention of Class D amplification and improved electrical grids, energy efficiency has not been a major concern in the last few decades.
In the meantime, a number of other technologies and improvements have evolved the pro audio speaker systems and the way they are operated.
Creating high-efficiency speakers today is the art and science of combining well-known acoustic principles with contemporary technologies and standards. This meets the needs of the industry today, and the increasing environmental requirements facing building installations, transportation, events, and festivals.
The most sustainable loudspeaker is the one that’s never made. With higher energy efficiency, fewer loudspeakers are required for a given scenario. This reduces the need for materials and energy in production, as well as in associated logistics.
Designing speakers with high flexibility of application also means that a touring company needs less inventory - which further reduces the number of speakers needing manufacture.
With the production that does take place, we design our products to have the least negative impact possible. By working with our production partners and sub-suppliers, we make incremental steps to improve the ecological footprint.
When designing our products, we can avoid harmful and toxic substances, such as beryllium and polyurethane coatings, and we can use sustainably sourced materials.
Our speakers are Made in Norway, with all custom parts, as well as some of the drivers made by Norwegian sub-suppliers. This ensures short transportation distances for parts until the speaker is assembled, as well as for European customers of the finished products.
When any given event can be covered with fewer and smaller speakers, it creates clear environmental and practical advantages in transportation.
The need for large forms of transport, over long distances, is reduced or eliminated. Trucks can be replaced with vans, that again are more likely to be electric, making transport doable with renewable energy.
Avoiding long-range shipment has several advantages. We want to examine how we can set up production of a high standard closer to major markets in the future.
We are Eco-Lighthouse certified. The most widely used environmental certification scheme in Norway. Recognized by the European Commission regarding Article 45 of Regulation (EC) No 1221/2009, the Eco-Lighthouse scheme is verified to hold the quality and standard matching international eco-labeling schemes (EMAS and ISO 14001).
