1 SOUND is an American-made professional loudspeaker manufacturer backed by decades on industry experience, utilizing the best research and development lab in Veneto, Italy. We aim to support and provide creative audio solutions for the needs of the commercial audio industry.


1 SOUND was created and founded by Lou Mannarino.  Lou has been working in the audio and music industry for over 40 years, started building speakers at 12 years old while mixing sound for school plays. Now his artist list includes Paul McCartney, Jay-Z, Bon Jovi and The New York Philharmonic. He has designed audio systems for The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Lincoln Center for the Arts, The Four Seasons Hotels and many other notable venues. Lou is the founder of L&M Sound & Light.
1 SOUND is made up of a team of talented and experienced audio professionals that contribute to every aspect of the process from design and fabrication to distribution and implementation.



All 1 SOUND speaker systems are manufactured in the USA, specifically Monmouth County NJ. We use the best materials available from the United States and Italy. While almost all current manufacturers in the pro audio industry are now manufacturing overseas, manufacturing in the USA gives 1 SOUND the advantages of quick turnaround times, control over the supply chain and the pride of being built in the USA.


1 SOUND brings 40 years of experience to each carefully made loudspeaker design. Our goal is to support the professional audio industry with tools that are new to the market and the best sound, bringing the latest technology to provide next generation solutions. We build using premium materials with highly trained craftsmen while maintaining strict quality control criteria. There are many quality brands available worldwide, however, few are built in the USA. USA is one of the biggest markets in the audio industry, we believe in having a hands on approach with building and stocking in the USA as well as in our individualized customer support.
