What is ALMA?

ALMA- The Association of Loudspeaker Manufacturing and Acoustics International

is a not for profit trade association. ALMA is the only international trade association dedicated to improving the design and manufacture of loudspeakers. Our membership is comprised of loudspeaker designers and manufacturers as well as suppliers of test and measurement equipment and other products, consultants and other service providers to the loudspeaker industry. Individuals, academic institutions, and educators, participating in the loudspeaker industry are encouraged to join. ALMA enjoys and welcomes a global membership. The organization was founded in 1961 as “The American Loudspeaker Manufacturers Association”. In 2001, ALMA changed to “Association of Loudspeaker Manufacturing  and Acoustics International” to reflect a global reach and to embrace a more diverse membership.
