ABOUT US -
Audio was formed in
1998 after the closing of the Altec Lansing factory in Oklahoma City.
It was clear to Bill Hanuschak,
who worked for them from 1980 until they closed, that there
would be a need for someone to continue the maintenance of the large
number of Altec acoustic products in use around the world. So, he went
to EVI/Telex, who had purchased Altec Lansing, with a plan to purchase
all of the tooling, drawings, and equipment Altec used to build and
service their loudspeakers, and to become their authorized service
center for all of the Altec Lansing products that were still under
warranty at that time. In addition, GPA assumed repair duties for all
of the older, classic products
that had served Altec’s customers since it's inception with the parts
manufactured from the original Altec tooling.
Plains Audio continues the Altec tradition by manufacturing repair
parts and complete products to the highest quality. Recently, we have
re-released some of Altec's most famous loudspeakers under the
GPA moniker, which we call our Classic Series, including products like the world-famous 515C
Alnico woofers, and the NEW 288H-series
Alnico High-Frequency Compression Driver.
We are also very
excited about several new designs we are working on to bring to the
audio market place. Two examples of these are our impressive redesign of Altec's famous 604-series of studio monitors, the 604-8H-III 16" Two-Way Loudspeaker , and our new 212-8A
Twelve-inch Two-Way Loudspeaker , which unitizes the large format
diaphragm used in the
large 288 drivers.
We are also the source for original parts and warranty
service for Altec Lansing Professional, which was a division of Altec
Lansing Technologies. This includes all of their speaker products that
were built through 2005. As always, these products will be repaired
using the original parts made from original tooling and materials, thus
assuring that their performance will meet original specifications.
