Over the years the Jensen family of brands has grown to include Jensen, Advent, Acoustic Research (AR), Phase Linear and NHT (Now Hear This) in the United States and Magnat and Macaudio in Germany. In 2004, Audiovox Corporation added the Jensen portfolio of brands to their already world recognized mobile and consumer electronics lines.

    History of Jensen

    In 1915 a young Peter Jensen and his associate Edwin Pridham invented the loudspeaker and as they say, “the rest is history.” They named it the “Magnavox” and this pioneering product enjoyed modest success until 1919 when they provided the loudspeakers for a speech by President Woodrow Wilson in San Diego. That event launched the speakers into the mainstream and as the products began to gain national recognition so did their inventors. In 1925, Peter Jensen left the company to found Jensen Radio Manufacturing. He died in 1961 leaving behind a legacy of quality products that bear his name.

    Innovation has been a hallmark from the very first days of Peter Jensen and it remains true to this day with high tech convergence products for both the home and vehicle. After Jensen developed that first high-efficiency, direct-radiator loudspeaker with high power rating many more pioneering innovations would follow, including the first high-quality, low-distortion loudspeaker to span the frequency range of the human ear. Jensen is one of those brands that is unequivocally a household name.

    If that were not enough, Jensen is also credited for inventing the first car stereo speaker. From there it was a fairly short leap to Jensen Mobile Audio. Starting with the legendary Sigma and Delta Series Triax® and FLEXAIR® speakers of the vintage 60s & 70s – products that sealed the company’s heritage as America’s dominant speaker manufacturer-both in home and in-car.

    Soon thereafter, line after line of high performance power amps joined the speaker lines. The expansion continued as those lines joined by sophisticated car stereos that morphed into CD players that have brought us to the current top of the line in-vehicle entertainment…the mobile multimedia solution.
