KDM Octasound History - Celebrating 38 Years

kdm_logo_redKDM was registered as a proprietorship in 1974 and incorporated in 1976. After being located at 705 Progress Ave for 18 years, the company has moved twice to gain much needed additional manufacturing space.

Ron Bull founded KDM Electronics Incorporated to design and manufacture central speaker clusters and sound systems for Recreational Facilities (Hockey and Figure Skating Arenas, Gymnasiums, Community Halls, Swimming Pools, etc.).

These sound systems are flexible, easy to operate, and capable of producing voice and music quality not normally found in these types of facilities. Ron Bull's experience and education have enabled the company to meet and exceed its goals.

octasound_logo_whiteKDM introduced the Octasound Speaker System in 1985. This product is a completely self contained 360º Central Speaker Cluster shaped in the form of an Octagon. This new product design represented a radical departure from the normal approach of constructing a central speaker cluster. Before the introduction of the Octasound Central Speaker, it was normal practice to construct a custom frame that secured a variety of manufactured components to form a central speaker cluster.

The new Octasound Central Speaker Cluster has greatly improved the sound quality available for end users. The Octasound Central Speaker is an economical, compact and aesthetically attractive design compared to the rather ugly, bulky designs of the past.

Between 1985 and the present, KDM has introduced a family of Octasound Speaker Systems to meet market requirements. The original design was very large, weighed 285 lbs. and was over 36 cubic feet in volume. Today Octasound Central Speaker models weigh between 7 and 75 lbs. and are only 0.75 to 4 cubic feet in volume.

In 1990, KDM introduced an extremely compact Mini Octagon Speaker. Currently KDM offers two models. The KDM SP80A and KDM SP800A models are targeted towards the market that normally uses ceiling type speakers. In addition to the Mini Octasounds, KDM has also introduced several models that are designed to cover a 180° angle and use a 'half octagon'. For complete info on how these designs work together please click here.

Over the years, KDM has also introduced a variety of electronic products that are designed to provide the most user-friendly possible interface for the end user.

The Ice Haus went from a mediocre sound system at best, to clear and crisp sound with the Octasound system installed. I cannot say enough about their professionalism and their knowledge within the industry.

I am the Athletic Director at Lowry High School in Winnemucca, Nevada and I am very happy to write you about how happy everyone at Lowry High School is about our new sound system. Our administrators could not believe that one speaker in the middle of the gym, could replace and sound so much better than the 14 speakers that we had hung in there before. We at Lowry are very happy to be able to write this testimonial about customer care. Thanks again and feel free to use me as a recomendation any time.

Assistant Athletic Director - Lowry High School.

Everything went off without a hitch at St. Wenceslaus last week. We finished the install and had everyone trained before noon on Friday. Kim Doyle (the principal) was extremely satisfied and thankful. The system sounds great and there are absolutely no dead spots or issues with the wireless mics getting signal at the farthest parts of the gym.

I want to thank you for installing our new High Quality PA System in our Gymnasium. The KDM SP840A is much better than we ever imagined. Our Sports Booster Club has been working on raising funds for a new system, however with the prices we were being quoted this seemed out of reach. With this system and your efforts we were able to raise the funds quickly and finally accomplish a three year goal.

What People are Saying About "Octasound"

I can't thank you enough for your recommendation provided to my customers group exercise fitness facility, Area 45 Fitness. As usual you were spot on. The SP800A performed perfectly for this application, which required audio clarity in a noisy environment. Although, the real show stopper here was the new OS2X12 subwoofer, what a beast! The bass 'crispness' is deep and amazing....these 2 units together may be the ultimate combination. To be able to fill a noisy room environment that large with this kind of performance....out of 2 speakers, is nothing short of incredible. I've attached some photo's. Great job on your product line, and I look forward to working with you again on the next project! Thanks again.

We are totally satisfied with our new KDM Sound System, especially considering the previous problems we had in addressing our acoustically difficult facility.

See our advertisement based on this installation.

Things went quite well with the install. Everyone is pleased. This will do well for the national competition coming up. When hockey season begins, I expect lots of happy faces from the crowd and players alike. The intelligibility has increased by at least a factor of 5.

Right from the moment of our first test I was amazed by the volume and clarity of the Octasound speaker!

I was totally amazed by it's sound quality, especially the voice clarity during crowded public sessions. All this in one very compact speaker.
