Product History

 

Snell has been manufacturing loudspeakers since 1977 when the late Peter Snell introduced the now famous TYPE A ORIGINAL. His philosophy of speaker design and performance has been maintained through the years as the company and the product lines grew. Here is a listing of some of our most popular models over the years as well as specifications, price and the years they were produced.
