Flare Audio is a British loudspeaker technology company which believes artistes and engineers, not loudspeakers, should create sound. Flare Audio products are built on the principle of Waveform Integrity: the signal that goes into the loudspeaker is precisely replicated by the sound wave that comes out. The loudspeaker should be sonically invisible, allowing the driver to deliver sound without interference. This uncorrupted sound retains all of its definition. It couples more efficiently, disperses evenly, enables maximum throw and is more controllable.

Sound connects all people, all things. Let your music, your message, your voice be heard clearly.
