The stories behind our high quality sound software...

FINEMotor

Based on his experience in designing loudspeaker drivers, Peter developed a program to help him design magnet systems and voice coils much faster and much more easily. To develop a user friendly program Peter asked Bob Harris,  a former Chief engineer at KEF UK, to help him convert it into a Windows based program. Eventually, producers of loudspeaker drivers learned about the program and wanted to buy it.

This program is today called FINEMotor and it is continuously being developed to meet the increasing demands of todays’ high quality sound industry.

FINECone

In 1995 Peter Larsen attended a seminar with Dr. Henrik Vollesen, who had finished his Ph.D at Bang and Olufsen. They discussed his analysis of the mechanical and acoustical properties of a loudspeaker unit with controlled directivity. Peter Larsen realized the potential of Henrik Vollesen´s ideas in the design of cones and they set about developing them into a full program.

Henrik Vollesen was an experienced programmer and Peter Larsen had the practical experience designing drivers. Together, they created a user friendly program to help design cones, domes, surrounds, dustcaps etc. as well as optimizing the driver. The program also turned out to be a very useful trouble shooter tool.

This program, FINECone, helps speaker designers all over the world to design better, less expensive and more accurate acoustic designs in a shorter time than ever seen before.

FINEBox

Over the years several customers asked Peter Larsen to create an intuitive and easy-to-use program to help them design loudspeaker boxes. Peter Larsen and Bob Harris developed the program with help from some of the world-leading designers of loudspeaker systems.

The goal was to develop a flexible and intuitive program with features based on practical design work. The designers wanted a real high power non-linear enclosure program which avoids extensive manual input and is able to simulate advanced designs in a simple way. Peter and Bob were able to make a program which is intuitive and user friendly to the system designer. 

This program is called FINEBox. FINEBox is based on practical design work and gives you a very quick overview of the possible system design options. It is the preferred tool for daily system high quality sound design work.
