Meniscus is located in Grand Rapids, MI – “Furniture City” at one time. It’s true – until they cut down all the trees! But, the old furniture factories remain, and we’re happy to be located in one of the oldest, on the NW side of town.
Years ago – (30?) Meniscus Audio started out as a hobby gone wild. It took up about half the basement in my family’s moderately sized home. With a classified ad in “Audio” and “Stereo Review” Magazines and a 6-page photocopied catalog, I was on my way.
As the company grew, we moved to successively larger buildings. and now occupy about 8000 sq./ft., with about 1/3 the space dedicated to our wood shop.
One thing that hasn’t changed is that we’ve always remained “speaker builders” We’ve tried just about every driver, know how they sound, and integrate into your design.
Meniscus is a fun place to work – making sawdust, playing with speaker parts and listening to music. When I was a kid, my hobby was constructing scale models with the old turntable spinning away. I often thought, “Where might I find a career building cool things and listening to tunes?” Karma!
If you call, you’ll probably talk with Mark or Chad and sometimes Tim or Joel. Chad handles the speaker measurements and crossover designs. Mark heads up product development and oversees the wood shop. Joel works on many of our custom wood projects and Tim fixes speakers that are in for repairs.
We value honesty and doing the right thing. Our goal is “Giving you the personalized ingredients for having a good time in the pursuit of enjoying music”.
If you are ever in the area, feel free to stop by for a visit. We’d love to see you. We can give you the nickel tour and you can check out our demo room where you may listen to some of our latest creations. Map GPS N42.59.636 W085.40.746
Tip – our mailing address in on Broadway, but enter the parking lot from Richmond or Turner and look for door #8.
Hope to talk with you soon!
