Company NameHanoud Associates
Paul Hanoud always enjoyed providing the audio equipment for live concerts. While studying to become an electrician, Paul worked in a hi-fi store deepening his knowledge of the gear and the companies that developed and manufactured the equipment, especially loudspeakers. In 1976 he and his wife Nancy established their own rep firm, covering stores and venues mostly in New England. Ten years later they became the rep firm for JBL. Meanwhile, Paul became an expert on installation and enjoyed the challenges of perfectly placing the equipment in each space to maximize the sound and the experience for the audience. As a result Paul’s list of installations range from schools and churches to concert halls and football fields!
