Effective May 8, 2009, consulting firm Acoustic Dimensions, based in New York City, merged with San Diego–based Sound Technology Consultants, expanding its geographic base across the entire U.S. Acoustic Dimensions states that the merger provides efficiencies of scale, shared resources, an expanded pool of talent, greater geographical reach, and a vision for the future based on innovation.

David Kahn founded Acoustic Dimensions in New York City in 1991. In 1992, Kahn, Craig Janssen and Vance Breshears agreed to form a consulting firm that would provide whole systems design thinking to spaces where people gather together to share an experience. Janssen and Breshears proceeded to open the Acoustic Dimensions office in Dallas.

Acoustic Dimensions’ early successes included Grand Ole Opry, Wildhorse Saloon and Ryman Auditorium in Nashville; the conversion of the Mark Hellinger Theatre on Broadway in New York City for David Wilkerson’s ministry; the Starlight Theatre in Kansas City; Autzen Stadium at the University of Oregon; and venues at Six Flags Fiesta Texas and Universal Studios in Orlando. During this time, Nicholas Edwards joined the team with an office in Coventry, UK.

In 1995, Breshears and his wife returned to the San Diego area where Breshears started Sound Technology Consultants, providing AV and acoustic design services for worship, education and entertainment projects.

Over the ensuing 14 years, Acoustic Dimensions and Sound Technologies Consultants grew independently—occasionally competing, but for the most part focusing in different geographic areas. As each company expanded, core values, work ethic, dedication to excellence, passion for innovation and a strong desire to serve client’s needs remained common threads.

In 2008, a conversation over coffee led Janssen and Breshears to consider the possibility of teaming again. They believed that blending of talents and skills between the two groups could be extremely successful. Technology could also help facilitate real-time collaboration in a way that wasn’t possible back in 1995.
