Mike was looking to upgrade his large conference room audio to improve the meeting experience for his users. Their previous setup “was a telephone, which is not a good microphone and was not providing nearly enough coverage for a large conference room,” explained Torres. It was important to Mike that he found a solution that was out of sight, could pick up everyone in the room naturally, and that he would be able to install himself.

Specific challenges included:

  • Complete coverage
  • Poor audio quality
  • Hiring a third party for installation



Mike Torres, Managing Partner at Crippen, needed an audio solution that could be easily integrated into a large conference room for high quality meetings.

When Mike was looking around for a solution he came across Stem Ceiling and knew it was exactly what he was looking for. In just a few hours, he was able to fully install a Stem Ceiling with a Stem Hub which allowed him to integrate ceiling speakers to complete the room. “The install process was simple and we got the room up and running fairly quickly.”


"Installing Stem Ceiling was relatively easy and we got up and running fairly quickly. Finally, our audience can now hear us without any issue."

Mike Torres, Managing Partner

In deploying Stem Audio, Mike was able to outfit his conference room with a solution that delivered a high-quality audio experience to his users and now everyone in his organization can be heard perfectly without walking closer to the microphone in the room. “Our experience with Stem Audio has been wonderful. From the sales process, to purchasing, to receipt and installation. Top notch customer support and service. We would definitely buy from here again.”
