Jeff
For Jeffery Coombs, founder and CTO of Ambisonic Systems, audio has been both a business and a passion for more than 40 years. Specializing in high end loudspeaker and subwoofer design, Jeff is renowned in the industry for his innovative concepts, breakthrough products and great sound. Over the years Jeff has lead the way creating entirely new speaker categories including the first high performance in-wall speakers (1972), first omni-directional outdoor speakers, first in-wall subwoofers, first dual-monaural home theater systems, and more recently, audiophile quality outdoor sub/sat systems that are the current rage in outdoor entertainment. Above all Jeff says- "it's about delivering the ultimate audio experience and fitting that experience into the lifestyle of my most discriminating customers". Now Jeff has turned his attention to the pro audio market with the introduction of the Immersive HD Series Loudspeakers, Line Arrays and Subwoofers. Designed for night clubs, houses of worship, live indoor and outdoor venues, these ultra-high output speakers produce silky smooth audiophile sound, evenly controlled front row to back row. "I've always gone my own direction, always followed my passion" Coombs says- a contention borne out in every one of the unique products that bear the Ambisonic Systems name.
