In 2010, the Snell Acoustics line was discontinued by D&M Holdings.
At that time, we partnered with them to become their official service and warranty provider. We acquired all of the original Snell Acoustics schematics, documentation, test equipment, master engineering references, operating procedures, and inventory. Today, Atomic HiFi and TV remains the world's only authorized parts distributor and repair service for Snell Acoustics.
We keep our inventory up to date with newly manufactured drivers, as well as vintage Snell-branded parts (like speaker feet and grilles). Click here to browse the catalog.
In addition to our current business, we have been long-time colleagues of the former owners of Snell Acoustics, which included some co-product development ventures for Home Theater sound systems in the late 1990s. So, our understanding of, and history with, the Snell product line runs fairly deep.
Have a look below to read through some of our Frequently Asked Questions.
We have a lot of the original owner's manuals and other documentation that we scan and post to our website. You can look through our archive here.
The short answer is, no. We can not, and do not, distribute them. Due to our agreement with the brand owner of Snell Acoustics, Atomic HiFi and TV is not allowed to release any proprietary documentation, including amplifier or crossover schematics.
All of the drivers we have in inventory are new. They are not used or outdated drivers. Every Snell Acoustics part or product you order from Atomic HiFi and TV is genuine and Snell Acoustics endorsed.
We are the only place where the new driver you receive is guaranteed to be +/- 0.5dB from the master engineering reference - the long standing Snell Acoustics standard.
It has always been the policy of Snell Acoustics not to re-foam their drivers. The main reason is that changing any part of the driver will not produce the sound it originally had.
So while re-foaming might allow the driver to produce sound, other parts of the driver (like the cone) are likely damaged as well. Because this is a popular topic, we have included some more information about Snell driver re-foaming here.
We keep our inventory up to date with new, hand-tuned drivers, as well as vintage, hard-to-find, Snell replacement parts. Have a look through our catalog for the parts we supply for Snell Acoustics speakers and electronics.
