Lou Mannarino

1 SOUND is a new, made in the USA, loudspeaker company founded by audio engineer, Lou Mannarino.

Mannarino has been working in the audio and music industry for over 35 years, mixing artists including Paul McCartney, Jay-Z, Bon Jovi, the New York Philharmonic, to name a few.  He has designed audio systems for the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Lincoln Center for the Arts, Four Seasons Hotels and many other notable venues.

Modern installations demand compact, full range loudspeakers with versatile mounting accessories, clean and elegant form factors and detailed control over coverage. Mannarino began designing the 1 SOUND line with these factors in mind.

The new product line debuted at InfoComm 2019. Highlights included:

1S-MS34  MS Speaker system provides a “mono surrounded by stereo” soundstage from a single compact enclosure. This new technology attracted many return visits as audio experts brought their friends back to hear – great solution for under balcony, front fill.

1S-C5  Full range 5-inch coaxial loudspeaker system utilizes ferro fluid dome tweeter for smooth response on and off axis, 5-inch passive radiator for generous low end output. This demo, coupled with the 1S-CSUB210 subwoofer drew many compliments for natural sound and precise imaging. LIke all 1 SOUND loudspeaker systems, the 1S-C5 can be installed outdoors.

1S-C6  Full range 6-inch coaxial speaker system utilizes ferro fluid dome tweeter for smooth response on and off axis, 6-inch passive radiator for generous low end output. Like all 1 SOUND loudspeaker systems, the 1S-C6 can be installed outdoors.

1S-CSUB210  Steerable 2X10-inch Subwoofer. Choose omni, endfire or cardioid operation via amplifier presets. True LF pattern control in a relatively compact enclosure.

1S-FSUB45 FSUB45  Low profile subwoofer utilizing 4 5-inch drivers with 10-inch passive radiator. Response down to 39 hz in a cabinet only 7-inch high. Perfect for hiding in corporate or hospitality installations.

All 1 SOUND loudspeaker systems will be manufactured in the USA. While almost all current manufacturers in the pro audio industry are now manufacturing overseas, Mannarino sees the advantages of quick turnaround times, control over the supply chain and the prestige of the “Made in the USA” label as advantages that favor USA manufactured products.
