Sunfire was founded by legendary audio designer Bob Carver, and took the high end audio and home theater industry by storm with its truly groundbreaking True Subwoofer. Featuring an enormous woofer driver with a rubber surround, driven by a 2700-watt amplifier with a patented "tracking downconverter" power supply, all within an box measuring 11" cubed, the True Subwoofer merged its incredible absolute performance with the budding custom installation industry's aesthetic demands to create one of the most successful high-end audio products in history.
Sunfire then built its product line with more innovative designs from Mr. Carver, such as two-channel and multi-channel amplifiers, preamplifier/processors, and ribbon and dynamic loudspeakers.
In late 2005, Sunfire Corporation was sold to Linear LLC, a Nortek subsidiary. Linear's portfolio, The AVC Group (www.theavcgroup.com), with headquarters in Carlsbad, California, features a group of preminent manufacturers and marketers of state-of-the-art consumer and commercial audio, video, and control system solutions. Sunfire now has access to greater capital, manufacturing expertise, engineering and marketing presence to further growth.
