Over the last few months, we’ve been working on a slew of loudspeaker and sound system Revit families. Audio equipment isn’t a new area for us, but the recent run of projects has definitely allowed us to deepen and refine our knowledge of how to build this type of Revit content for maximum usability and performance in Revit.

It’s been a pleasure developing these speaker Revit families with features like multi-axis rotation via pitch and azimuth settings, the use of InfoComm shared parameters, multiple built-in bracket and mounting options, and movable connectors. With the annual InfoComm show coming up this weekend in Las Vegas, we thought the next best thing to being there would be to share some samples of the loudspeaker Revit families we’ve been working on.

Aside from the beautiful renders you’ll see below, it’s worth mentioning that all of these families have been built to our usual standards with three levels of detail in 3D and 2D, materials applied in fine 3D views, symbols for coarse plan views, and all at file sizes between 600-800KB.

Wall-mounted loudspeaker Revit families
Loudspeaker series with fully adjustable pitch and azimuth and optional wall or pole mount (shown below).

Pole-mounted loudspeaker Revit families
Same loudspeaker series as above but with optional pole mount applied.

Ceiling-mounted Cluster Loudspeaker Revit Families
Ceiling-mounted cluster speakers with adjustable pitch.

Columnar loudspeaker Revit families
Columnar loudspeakers with automated bracket configurations based on type and rotation settings.

And all together now…it’s the loudest room in the world!
