History AED Audio

AED Audio is a premium worldwide audio brand that was founded and created by AED group. AED stands for Acoustic and Electronic Development and started back in the early 1980’s with the development of own speakers. In the beginning, components of several brands were used to build up the own AED speaker range. Today, AED is coming back to its legacy with a brand new product range that is inspired and developed with the experience and the knowledge of audio professionals. AED Audio is 100% owned by AED group.

AED group was established in Belgium in 1985 as a dry-hire rental company for lighting and sound equipment. Today, the group (AED Rent, AED Display, AED Distribution, AED Store, AED Lease, AED Second Hand, AED Repair and AED Studios) is one of the major players on the audio-visual market in Europe, employing more than 300 workers in 6 countries (Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, France, the United Kingdom and Singapore).
