Hand-selected veneers of the world's most beautiful woods
Manufacturing begins with the careful selection of hardwood
veneers chosen from woods specially reserved for us by the producers.
Craftsmen then match the veneer for the most attractive fit.
THIEL purchases veneer only from responsible foresters, and contributes
to sustainable forest management.
High precision machining ensures tight tolerances for complex
High precision CNC (Computer Numeric Controlled) machining
centers achieve cabinet cut tolerances of two-tenths of one millimeter.
Custom made and programmed, the CNCs make complex cabinet design
possible and increase production efficiency.
Crossover networks are hard-wired using premium components.
The heart of the speaker is the crossover network. To ensure
excellent performance and long-term reliability, THIEL's crossovers
are hard-wired with the highest quality electrical parts, such
as polystyrene capacitors, 99.99% pure copper wire, and silver
solder. Each crossover is then thoroughly tested by computer
for proper performance.
Hand-assembled cabinets for the finest fit and most rugged
THIEL's skilled cabinet makers assemble the precision parts
so joints are tight and veneer grain patterns flow seamlessly
from top to bottom in matched pairs. Cabinet walls are thick,
and the enclosures are heavily braced to increase stiffness and
reduce unwanted vibration.
Standard and custom finishes receive the same special, one-of-a-kind
We consider each cabinet a piece of fine furniture. Each is
individually sanded and finished with extreme care to bring out
the natural beauty of the wood. The result is a cabinet finish
of the highest caliber, built to enhance and complement the aesthetics
of your home. The finish coatings we use are very low in toxicity
and exceed the EPA's environmental emission standards.
Unique design and materials represent the state-of-the-art
in driver technology
The unique design of THIEL's drivers is actualized by careful
assembly of high precision components and materials to build
the world's finest speaker drivers. From the intricate workings
of the motor systems and diaphragm assemblies to the massive
magnets and extremely rigid magnesium baskets, THIEL drivers
represent the state-of-the-art in driver technology and performance.
Careful hand assembly
All phases of manufacturing meet on the final assembly table.
Cabinets, drivers, crossovers, wiring, and trim are meticulously
assembled to complete the speaker building process. Every connection
is double checked; every seal is reviewed for proper functioning;
every screw is tightened to its proper torque. No speaker leaves
the table until it is worthy of the THIEL logo.
We test each and every THIEL speaker to ensure consistency
Each speaker is tested and its performance measured under
anechoic conditions to ensure that its performance matches the
original design prototype. Every speaker is then scrutinized
from top to bottom for flaws or defects not detected in earlier
stages. These quality steps are taken to make sure your speakers
arrive problem-free and perform flawlessly. We are proud of the
