Aerial Acoustics was founded in 1991…

By Michael Kelly and David Marshall in Boston, Massachusetts. Michael’s undergraduate degree is in physics with a Master’s from MIT. Michael and David had worked together previously at Analog and Digital Systems where Michael was executive vice president and David was in engineering.

Aerial’s first product was the Model 10T with its unique cast-in-house Novalith® stone head and Kevlar sandwich midrange. The iconic 10T was Stereophile Speaker of the Year in 1996.

Aerial went on to develop a full line of critically acclaimed high performance models including outstanding center speakers and powered subwoofers. Today this has become the highly regarded 5T/6T/7T/7CC family. These models have received numerous excellent reviews.






Aerial 5T


The Aerial Acoustics Model 5T represents a complete reevaluation of the possibilities of the small speaker. Although replacing the popular and respected 5B, the 5T is a completely new design. It offers significant and measureable improvements in system sensitivity, dynamics, treble delicacy, midrange transparency, and bass extension. Designed specifically for placement 2” to 2’ from a wall, it has already proven to surprise listeners whether in a bookshelf, on a tabletop, or mounted on a stand.

The Model 5T reflects the larger and more expensive Model 6T and Model 7T designs. It shares the same curved cabinet construction, high gloss finish, the same tweeter, similar woofer refinement, and tight-tolerance crossover componentry and wiring.







Aerial 6T


The slender, graceful appearance of the Aerial Acoustics Model 6 is perfectly complemented by its refined, full-bodied sound. Purpose-designed with a compact footprint and rear-facing port, the carefully voiced Model 6T is ideally suited for small to medium sized listening environments.


The Model 6T is characterized by a transparent, open, natural sound, with precise imaging and taut, satisfying bass that reaches surprisingly deep for a speaker of its size. Treble response is extended and remarkably smooth. Unrestrained dynamics and high power handling combine with subtlety and nuance to faithfully reproduce both music and film soundtracks.


All Aerial loudspeaker systems are designed and constructed with fanatical attention to quality and detail. Decades of design and manufacturing experience have taught us that craftsmanship and technology go hand-in-hand when creating products of uncompromising performance and genuine long-term value.







Aerial 7T



The exceptional ability of the Model 7T surpasses the competence of conventional systems through its exacting design and the high quality of its enclosures, networks, and drivers.


Multiple layers of curved, stressed, and laminated MDF provide non-resonant behavior unmatched in conventional flat panel construction. Seven full cross section braces remove any remaining subtle coloration. The resulting labyrinthine structure is virtually inert.


Specially compounded Papyrus forms the stiff but precisely damped midrange cone. This driver is isolated in a separate, wool-filled chamber. The woofer cones are a rigid, damped bilaminate composite. Both driver types have cast magnesium frames, large magnets and long linear excursions. The soft ring-dome tweeter has large dual magnets, a damped chamber, and a copper pole sleeve. The result is that each driver remains linear well beyond its range of use, maintains accurate transients, and exhibits exceedingly low distortion.


Seamless amplitude and phase integration is provided by precision networks using 21 high-quality components including polypropylene film capacitors and low-oxygen copper air-core coils. High current nickel-steel cores are used in the bass. Separate glass-epoxy boards are employed for the bass and midrange/treble sections. Silver solder and Teflon® insulated high-purity copper wire are used throughout.
