Finished in Aerospace lacquer in any RAL colour, fitted with stainless fixings throughout and sat on chrome ball castors the AXJET is easily moved, flexible in positioning and weather resistant for outdoor use. It is supplied in a water-resistant fleece lined jacket and full professional flight-case.

Whether it is Beethoven in your lounge or Beyonce by the pool, the AXJETS convey incredibly detailed reproductions at realistic sound levels.

It has been a long time coming, but the wait was worth it! Nothing looks like the AXJET and nothing sounds as real and dynamic or can match the performance of the AXJET!

ABOUT US

We are a small family run business started in rural Wales UK 40 years ago by Fred Davies, who has been designing and manufacturing concrete horn speakers his whole life. We have made many things from built-in audio room radiators to the pedal powered PA at Glastonbury. We have been kept busy on our work with moulds and castings and have made many OEM products for hi-fi, PA and other fields. Fred’s background in construction, design and years of experience in casting techniques with cement and plastics, along with our craft and skill with largely hand-made products has given us the opportunity to develop a revolutionary loudspeaker.

We first introduced a free-standing AXJET in 1992. In the last ten years we have developed the new AXJET and the recent AX SUPERJET to the point where they are performing in the audiophile domain of pure sonic reproduction whilst having PA levels of power, making them incredibly versatile. Our aspirations to achieve a near perfect point-source, single driver, compound horn speaker are now vindicated after many years of toil!

1970/71

Fred hears PA horns being used instead of standard WEM column speakers and recognises the superior sound. Witnesses prototypes of early Turbosound systems at Glastonbury and Community horns as used by The Grateful Dead.
