Eminence was founded in 1966 by Bob Gault and quickly became the second largest manufacturer of audio speakers. In the beginning, they were merely producing 3 18-inch speakers a day. Today however, they are able to produce 10,000 a day. Many of these are exported to over 90 countries worldwide.

In order to stay competitive, Eminence opened a new factory in Dongguan, China in 2006. This operates under the same quality and safety standards as the one in the US.
