Ground Zero Audio History

The Rise of the GROUND ZERO Company

GROUND ZERO has been founded back in 1995 by Karl Felix Lautner distributing
car audio products “Made in USA” and introduced the revolutionary subwoofers of
GZ Engineering USA to the European market in 1997. The following years, the German Company took over the European trademark rights of “GROUND ZERO” and started developing market specific products. Finally, 2003 the GROUND ZERO GmbH took over all global trademarks from the discontinued US company and expanded the distribution to customers worldwide. Today, more than 400 sophisticated audio products developed and designed at the GROUND ZERO in-house engineering department are available in more than 82 countries globally.

With an outstanding audio performance, they succeed to be part of the winner´s circle of European and World SQ and SPL Championships every season.

Listening to music can be emotional, impressive, relaxing or enjoyable. At that, it doesn´t really matter what kind of music is the personal favorite, whether it´s Instrumental, Jazz, Electro, Latin, Classic, Rock or any other music direction. However, audio reproduction quality at each desired volume is elementary. Some music styles require higher levels while others prefer the soft tones.
GROUND ZERO considers all the different wishes of customers during the development of new products. Along with this, the target is to create the most realistic sound, to transfer the soul of the music and the intention of the performer. Summarized to one phrase: RESPECT THE MUSIC!
