APG has been manufacturing acoustic speakers for performance and event use since 1978. After more than 40 years in existence, the APG brand is, now more than ever, recognised for its acoustic expertise and for the excellence of its products, which are designed and manufactured in France.
The natural quality of the APG sound and the non-aggressive character of the systems means that APG speakers enjoy a presence in numerous markets, such as clubs, theatres, concert venues, and events spaces. APG is also present within the auditorium and large conference hall sector.
APG products have received numerous awards within the world of professional audio, and in 2019 the brand was recognised as the best small company within the sound equipment field.
The brand is committed to providing venues, service providers, and technicians with powerful systems that faithfully reproduce the artist’s performance. A major player in the use of coaxial technology, which involves positioning the treble speaker at the centre of the bass speaker, APG never stops innovating in and around this principle. With ISOTOP, APG applies coaxial technology within long-range systems. NDB (No Diffraction Baffle) enables faithful sound reproduction within the speaker’s aperture area, thanks to a front panel featuring a curved profile.
