Who is elettromedia-USA??

Elettromedia, founded 1987 in Potenza Picena, Italy. Is considered today a global leader in the production of car audio amplifiers, signal processors, speakers and accessories for professional installation. In 1979 a group of technicians form various fields of electronics united by the pursuit of high fidelity audio reproduction gathered around a dream called AUDISON. The fusion of the Latin words “audio” and “sonus." After several years of study and experimentation in 1984 , the completion of the first amplifier (HP 110) – AUDISON was born.

Elettromedia-USA was created in June of 2006 to import the elettromedia Italy brands into the United States. We are proud to be the sole US distributor of Audison (electronics and loudspeakers), Hertz (loudspeakers and electronics) and Connection accessories.
