Our company came to life in 1983 when founders Scott Struthers and Geoff Spencer recognized the need for a groundbreaking new audio solution. No product or system existed that could deliver unsurpassed acoustic performance with minimal visual intrusion. It was this revelation that led them to invent the category of architectural speakers. And the rest is history.

Today, we are still independently owned and operated, and headquartered in San Clemente, California, where it all began. We’ve worked hard to build an unmatched reputation when it comes to speakers, but we’ve also created a range of innovative, aesthetically-conscious home and business technology solutions that go far beyond sound.

There are four simple principles that inform everything we do and make. These ideas represent the beliefs that inspired our beginning and still hold true to this day:

Create products that are designed to disappear.

We believe technology should disappear into architecture. This simple philosophy continues to inspire everything we do. Our hidden audio solutions deliver an even, balanced sound experience that is nothing short of magical, blending into and style, installation, or budget.

Cultivate authentic partnerships.

Every day at our home base in San Clemente, CA, you will find passionate, immensely knowledgeable people forging some of the strongest relationships in our industry. From our customer-centric culture to our not-to-be-missed Studio Seminars, we aim to define what authentic partnership looks like. Connecting our strategy and products to your company, we help unlock the most value possible for your business. Our team is your team.

Build upon our strong heritage of innovation. 

The history of our independently-owned company is rooted in a deep knowledge of our customers and construction. From high-performance, award-winning audio solutions to our unique TRUFIG mounting technology to innovative IPORT products that hold, charge and protect tablets, customers rely on our culture of creativity to continue to push the boundaries of technology and design.

Make the world a better place.

At Sonance, we believe that we have a responsibility to use our business and our resources as a force for good in the world. We know that when we focus our efforts on giving back philanthropically, and in the areas of Environmental Impact, Social Responsibility, and Good Governance, we take small but fundamentally important steps towards Making the World a Better Place.

We invite you to connect with our team, learn more about all of our products, or even plan a visit to see it all for yourself. Discover what we mean when we say SONANCE: Beyond Sound.





IPORT By Sonance. Hold. Charge. Protect.

In 2004, the team here at Sonance saw an opportunity to integrate everyone’s favorite Apple products in a simple way into our everyday lives and launched our IPORT product line. Beginning with the world’s first in-wall dock for iPod, and later evolving into in-wall mounts for iPad and iPod touch, we realized that IPORT could help end-users turn their tablet into a simple and functional business tool or home controller. Today, industry-wide praise continues to grow as IPORT redefines where and how you can use tablets in residences and commercial applications alike. From residences, hotel rooms, corporate offices, yachts and fleet vehicles, IPORT products solve real problems and enhance the usability of tablets in business and at home every day.

TRUFIG. Design Without Compromise.

In 2009, we discovered that during custom installation work, a number of devices or other “technology clutter” like power outlets and HVAC grilles could benefit from our belief that technology can be designed to disappear. So we created TRUFIG, a revolutionary flush mounting process that delivers a trimless, minimalist aesthetic across a wide range of finishes. From walls to kitchen islands to ceiling surfaces, this innovative technique brings an unmatched level of consistency and camouflage to the finished look of any project. And because it’s a Sonance offering, it also comes with a systematic, precision-fit approach to installation, and the full support of our team for any help needed at any time.
