About Acoustic Frontiers

Acoustic Frontiers specializes in the design and creation of high performance home theaters, listening rooms and home recording studios for audio / video enthusiasts.

We offer design services to clients across the USA and Canada, as well as installation services locally to those in the SF Bay Area.

Founded in 2009 the #1 value we bring to our clients is expertise in design and acoustics.

Unlike many other audio dealers and home theater installers we are technically savvy, well trained and educated. The manufacturers we work with and love are engineering led companies with solid science and passion behind them.

We don’t do OK or average. We create high performance systems that we would be thrilled to have in our own home.
