Company Overview |
Resonado Labs is an American multinational technology company that designs and licenses proprietary acoustic technologies to brands and manufacturers. The company’s initial pursuit, via its flagship product, Flat Core Speaker™ (FCS™) technology, is to develop speaker driver architecture that achieves optimal form and function, without compromise. FCS technology is a novel type of electrodynamic speaker driver engineered with a low depth structural profile and high diaphragm aspect ratio as an alternative to the conventional conical driver type to meet the rising demand for innovative, space-efficient product designs without experiencing tradeoffs in sound performance. Outside of FCS technology, Resonado Labs is developing numerous exciting technologies, currently confidential, across audio industry verticals with its Frontier R&D team. Learn more at resonado.com.
