Blaze Audio acquires Corner Audio’s Ci Series loudspeakers

Ci Series of loudspeakers and subwoofers will transfer to Blaze Audio, while fellow Danish company Cornered Audio will continue with its residential portfolio

Blaze Audio has today announced it has acquired the Ci Series of commercial install loudspeakers from Cornered Audio, a provider of aesthetically designed loudspeakers which, like Blaze Audio, is based in Denmark. The strategic move enhances Blaze Audio’s portfolio of pro audio solutions, tailored for the installed sound market, by aligning the Ci loudspeakers with their existing PowerZone amplifiers, software, and controllers.

The deal will see Blaze Audio take immediate ownership of the Ci Series of products—the Ci2, Ci4, Ci4-V, Ci5, Ci5-V, and CS8 and CS12 subwoofers—that are designed for commercial and hospitality locations. A well-established provider of loudspeaker solutions, Cornered Audio is known for its modern aesthetic design and makes residential products for homes and home cinema, as well as commercial products for hotels, bars, restaurants, and meeting rooms.

As a result of this acquisition, the commercial products will be transferred to Blaze Audio and will be available via its global distribution channels, while Cornered Audio will continue with its residential portfolio.

George Tennet, VP of sales and marketing, Blaze Audio, said: “Blaze Audio has a strong portfolio of install amplifiers, with and without full DSP, and these are sold globally via the Blaze Partner network. Adding a lineup of unique, designer commercial speakers allows us to extend our value proposition, and we are looking forward to combining the great sound and great design of the Ci Series with our reliable and flexible amplifiers.”

Commenting on the acquisition, Hans Madsen, founder and CEO, Cornered Audio, said: “I’m very pleased to see the commercial range become part of a fast-growing and well-organised installation brand like Blaze Audio and see them build projects with many more systems partners around the world. Cornered Audio will now strengthen its focus on the residential and home cinema markets, where our passion is to play an even bigger role moving forward.’’
