In 1986 he founded Davis Acoustics as a family business. It started in our backyard with two employees in the Saint Maur des Fosses area of Paris.  We expanded the factury three times until building our most recent facility in its current location of Troyes, France.


The Davis name has always  been synonymous with  true high fidelity and is to this date a recognized leader worldwide  in the design, manufacture and sale of superior quality, true, life-like, sound reproduction loudspeakers.  Completely self financed  all of our products and sub components including coils, magnets, speaker cones and cabinets are all designed and hand made by our highly trained dedicated craftsmen in our factory in France.   Our OEM division manufactures speakers for several of the world’s leading class automotive manufactures for their client’s enjoyment as well as where we design, manufacture and supply other OEM speaker brands with our technology. The tradition of design excellence and our love for audio and audiophiles worldwide  is continued by our family and staff.

About Davis Acostics

In-House DAVIS Technology

At Davis Acoustics we design and manufacture our own drive units, coils, magnets, crossovers, …most everything in France. Since our humble, early beginnings, our highly skilled staff design and produce our high quality drive units from scratch here at our factory in Troyes, France.

A drive unit may be termed as “the engine” of a speaker. By changing the materials used in the construction of the cone, the size of a magnet, the value of resistance in the voice coil, its size, composition, our engineers can decide on the unique characteristics and “color” of a speaker, even before even starting to work on its charge or its crossover. We produce speakers from the most basic of components from the start, to the very end as a finished product destined to you. All in-house, under one roof, and one team. This is a great advantage over our competitors. Many of our peers outsource their speaker designs and their manufacture, many do this off shore and to the lowest bidder. We do not. For over a quarter century we have complete control over design and the maintenance of quality. We control the process of manufacturing from start to finish, always striving for perfection. We reinvest our profits back into our Company, and we only design and make loudspeakers. We sell nothing else.



Our Product Line


We boast a variety of loudspeakers to satisfy all tastes and budgets. For instance, our EVA series of loudspeakers sees Davis Acoustics succeed in producing a high quality loudspeakers with a satisfying audio experience for the user at an affordable price.


Our recently launched POWER family of speakers feature high efficiency drive units for this product range. The line uses a speaker cone that is both very light and yet at the same time very stiff. This design was the result of a direct response to the ever growing demand for speakers that can perfectly be mated with tube amplifiers. In this case our profound knowledge of drive units and manufacturing techniques permitted us to design and deliver the first dozen first samples of this dedicated drive unit first used in our Monitor 1 model within weeks. Powerful and accurate, the liner features both bookshelf and free standing column models.


As audiophiles ourselves, we even sell kits for the audio enthusiast. This ensures that DAVIS may meet any and all markets, budgets and passions. This allows one to have a personal experience with their finished loudspeaker all the while benefitting from our core driver technology that we supply. It is a passion for us, I am sure you would agree.
