Burkhardt's Back: SpeakerCraft Vet Returns With Origin Acoustics
Longtime SpeakerCraft head and perennial industry figure Jeremy Burkhardt is returning to the industry, with a new company called Origin Acoustics.
Burkhardt laid out his plans in an interview last week with Julie Jacobson of CE Pro. According to the interview, Burkhardt is joined in the new venture by a couple of familiar colleagues: SpeakerCraft founder Ed Haase and Dave Donald.
Dealers will get their first look at the product in June. The company's logo, featuring a silhouette of Burkhardt's head and his trademark goatee, can be seen at Originacoustics.com.
Burkhardt's final departure from SpeakerCraft was in 2012, and he followed that with an aborted attempt to acquire Soundcast.
