Our Pro Audio DNA
L‑Acoustics is the world leader in premium professional sound systems for live events. From world-class artists on tour, to major music festivals in every genre, to opening and closing ceremonies of planetary sporting events, we are the trusted choice of event professionals who require extreme reliability and fidelity show after show.
Founded by Dr. Christian Heil in 1984 with the aim of developing solutions anchored in science to serve the concert industry, L‑Acoustics would go on to pioneer a technology known as the line source array, today’s universal standard for live sound.
In 2016, L‑Acoustics introduced L‑ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound, a technology that represents another paradigm shift in live events and beyond, to any experiential environment. By fusing the senses of sound and sight into a single, coherent whole, L-ISA creates a true connection that makes experiences feel not just believable, but larger than life. In a word, hyperreal.
Now, for the first time in our company history, the incomparable precision and power of L‑Acoustics sonic expertise is available for specification in innovative spaces designed to delight the most exacting listeners.

The Benchmark for Pro Performance
Intelligent electronics deliver colossal power that truthfully relays the stunning dynamics of live concert sound. Step into the sphere of professional-grade audio, turn up the volume, and enjoy listening bliss untainted by the distortion that characterizes conventional “high performance” sound systems.
The team behind L‑Acoustics Creations believes that sound can and should be spectacular, cinematic, magical, intimate—or whatever the artist intends it to be. This group of individuals representing diverse areas of scientific and technological expertise has come together united in a commitment to bring sonic innovation into homes, corporate environments, cultural spaces and exhibits, and special events. We seek to actively collaborate with like-minded individuals and organizations to purposefully consider and elevate the role of sound as a vector of emotion.
President and Founder, L‑Acoustics
A passion for live music, further fueled by the inspiring sound design of Pink Floyd circa 1977, led quantum physics researcher Christian Heil to pursue a vocation that would become his life’s work: developing sound solutions to elevate the listening experience. Heil founded L‑Acoustics in 1984 and would revolutionize the live audio industry in the 1990s with the introduction of the line source technology that improves sound control over audiences of any scale. With the introduction of L‑ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound technology in 2016, L‑Acoustics aims to once again transform how the world experiences music in both live and recorded environments.
