Grund Audio Design has been producing speakers and other audio solutions since the mid-1980s under its own brand name and as an OEM provider.
The Skinny: Recently the Council Bluffs, Iowa-based company introduced its new VIP Series of loudspeakers which includes four models.
The Specs: The line starts with the two-way VIP-06 that includes a 1-inch dome tweeter and 6.5-inch midrange driver. The other three models utilize three-way designs, 5-inch midrange drivers, and Grund differentiates the speakers by incorporating 8-inch, 10-inch and 12-inch low-frequency drivers in the VIP-8, VIP-10 and VIP-12 speakers. Grund says the VIP-6 reproduces a frequency response of 68Hz to 20kHz, while the VIP-8, VIP-10 and VIP-12 respectively reproduce frequency responses of 45Hz to 18kHz, 40Hz to 18kHz and 38Hz to 18kHz.
Solutions: Grund says the speakers can be used in restaurants, schools, houses of worship and other public spaces.
