Oakwood Automation Systems Now A Certified Installer for SpeakerCraft High-End Audio Systems

To provide some of the most innovative audio systems ever produced for the residential marketplace

Huntington Station, NY - Oakwood Automation Systems (OAS) today announced a new agreement with SpeakerCraft that allows OAS to provide some of the most innovative audio systems ever produced for the residential marketplace.


SpeakerCraft is a Riverside, CA-based manufacturer of indoor and outdoor speakers, subwoofers, control systems, and amplifiers. Its product line includes high-performance audio systems that redefine how A/V is experienced in the home and on the checkbook. One of its more recent introductions is a system that literally goes underground; a BoomTomb subwoofer designed to produce earth-shaking bass to an outdoor event or party.

"The possibilities from this lineup are incredible," said Jim Macri, President, OAS. "SpeakerCraft provides a very impressive line of audio systems from entry-level multi-room speakers to discrete, high-end units at very reasonable prices. They really are ideal for a wide variety of indoor and outdoor environments."

This is the fifth major product line OAS has gained certification for in just 6 months; a clear indication of the company's rapid expansion into newer home automation technologies.

"As we speak with more customers, we see very clearly that people love to have the ability to control things around the home with their iPads or phones," Macri said. "In the music area alone, there's a big migration away from conventional speaker systems toward more discrete, in-wall, or in-ceiling audio systems. SpeakerCraft is a very appealing line for that environment, particularly with its audio quality and seamlessness. It enables anyone to have music fed throughout the house in a very convenient and highly aesthetic package."
