March’s MSP Audio Geeks meetup is on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 at 6:30pm. This is a joint venture with the Audio Society of MN. Thanks to Oliver Masciarotte and Kent Peterson we’ll be hosted by Warkwyn at MISCO (Minneapolis Speaker Co.), the Twin Cities’ premier loudspeaker design and manufacturing facility.

Warkwyn is an acoustical test and measurement company owned by MISCO and is in the business of performing acoustical measurements and prototyping for start-ups and audio companies needing additional resources. Warkwyn is also sales and support agent for Klippel GmbH, a leader in acoustical and electromechanical vibration testing and measurement. Founded in 1949, MISCO is recognized as a global leader in OEM loudspeaker production for the CE, MI and pro audio, along with specialized transducer technologies for military, medical, aerospace and mass transit applications and is one of the few remaining US based loudspeaker manufacturers.

Kent Peterson is Warkwyn’s Sales and Marketing Manager. In his 25+ year career in the audio manufacturing, sales, marketing and acoustical consulting fields, Kent has worked with Electro-Voice, SEH Engineering, HDR Engineering, and Williams Sound. Kent’s acoustical career has included consultation on the Minnesota Twins Stadium, US Bank Stadium, Minnesota Public Radio, Metro Transits’ Light Rail system and the Department of Homeland Security’s Headquarters in Washington D.C. Kent is also a performing musician with a recording studio in downtown Minneapolis and has 3 Minnesota Music Awards to his credit.

A tour of the manufacturing and test facilities will be preceded by an overview of the company’s history and current activities. Light refreshments will be served.
