From their website: “For more than 60 years, MISCO has helped audio system designers make the sound in their imaginations a reality. We engineer and manufacture loudspeakers to meet the specific needs of the widest range of customers and applications.

MISCO is the only US loudspeaker company that does it all – design engineering, prototyping, testing, and manufacturing – in domestic facilities. Our US-based production offers distinct advantages, including quick and accurate communications with customers, lower costs, and shorter lead times.

And while the MISCO product line has grown beyond speakers, we’re always close to our audio roots. Today, MISCO offers complete audio systems, enclosures, amplifiers, accessories and, of course, industry-leading loudspeakers.”
