In 1957 he started Testronic Development Laboratory (now TDL Technology, Inc.) to develop audio electronics. During the 1960s and 70s, TDL built active filters and pseudo-random noise generators for well known companies such as Bose Corp. and Acoustic Research.

  • Applications Acoustiques de Composites (AAC) was inadvertently not included in the 2012 Loudspeaker Industry Sourcebook’s “Loudspeaker Cone Vendor Survey 2012” article.

In addition to manufacturing membranes in cellulose fiber (paper), AAC has become more diversified through the development of new technologies and the use of materials such as glass fiber, aramid fiber (Kevlar), carbon fiber, titanium, aluminum, ceramics, plastic materials and, more recently, magnesium or sandwich composite.

With customers worldwide, AAC produces cones and membranes, domes, dust caps and dust barriers, surrounds, and spiders. AAC also manufactures domes for tweeters, notably the automobile industry.
