Funktion One are English inventors and manufacturers of professional loudspeaker systems.
Achieving the best possible audio quality is the principle motivating factor at Funktion One. They are intent on sonic accuracy and our technological approach avoids the use of both system EQ (with its inherent phase and headroom problems) and compression driver mid-range (with its inherent harshness and distortion). Funktion One loudspeaker systems also have excellent directional control allowing sound to be focused where it's needed and minimising out-of-venue environmental impact.
Funktion One designs also focus on maximising efficiency (conversion of amplifier power into acoustic energy) as this tends to produce alive and responsive sound. It also means that less electrical power is required for a given acoustic output making F1 Resolution systems more energy efficient compared to alternatives.
Funktion One has also pioneered the Ambisonic surround Sound System for large-scale events and could claim to have more experience in the implementation of this exciting spatial technology than any other organization. This emerging technology has been used by the Chemical Brothers, Glastonbury Festival, London's Millennium Dome central show and more recently at The Glade Festival.
