Funktion-One is a specialist British professional loudspeaker system inventor and manufacturer. Established just over 20 years ago by pioneering designers Tony Andrews and John Newsham, Funktion-One has built its name on the production of high quality point source loudspeaker systems.
Its founders were also responsible for the Turbosound brand of the 70s, with these two innovators accredited with revolutionary designs spanning the generations, including the TMS-3, Flashlight and Floodlight systems.
These leading lights have established many of the principles which are now viewed as industry standard within the audio community. While their designs may have been imitated over the years, none have been surpassed. In fact, they have remained the first choice for many permanent and touring sound applications throughout the world.
Funktion One Loudspeaker Systems
Here at Sound Services Ltd we make it our business to only use the best audio equipment in the work that we do. We operate as part of the Funktion-One rental network, giving us unique access to the incredible experience and equipment produced by Tony, John and the team. From new products such as the Resolution 3 range and the Resolution 1.5TTs (which we have recently installed in a venue in King’s Cross: The Star of Kings) to established and proven models such as Resolution 2 and 4 models, we offer a full range of solutions from installations to one-off shows and events. Our loudspeaker selection includes the Resolution 1, 2, 3 and 4 ranges, plus the new RM18 tri-concentric stage wedge, F218mk2 and F121 subs. We have the capacity to provide a bespoke sound system for everything from a small party to a large festival.
The primary motivational factor at Funktion-One is to achieve the highest possible audio quality through its specialist loudspeaker products. Their designs are proof of this as they seek to focus on maximum efficiency (by converting amplifier power into acoustic energy) as this is more likely to result in a live and responsive sound. It also means that less electrical power is required for a given acoustic output making F-1 Resolution systems more energy efficient compared to other alternatives available on the market.
With this manufacturer being so intent on perfecting sonic accuracy, their technological approach manages to avoid the use of system EQ (with its well-documented phase and headroom issues) and compression driver mid-range (with its apparent harshness and distortion). These loudspeaker systems boast outstanding directional control, ensuring that sound can be focused precisely where it is needed while minimising the out-of-venue environmental impact. This is why we use these top-of-the-range products in our hire inventory.
We have the experience and know-how to specify the right system for each job and deploy it in the most effective way possible. Our team of experienced and passionate engineers will ensure that the sound quality at the event is truly exceptional.
