How did you get started doing this type of work?
I built my first "loudspeaker" when I was in 2nd grade. It consisted of a cow magnet, a balloon, and a mason jar. Didn't sound great but it worked! I was a ham radio operator, built my own transmitter and receiver when I was in 5th grade. I've always enjoyed electronics and sound and I'm lucky enough to have my "hobby" turn into a viable business!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Look for longevity in business. We've been around for nearly 25 years. You don't get to be around that long without knowing what you are doing.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Sound systems and audio production are seen as being very simple. And sometimes they are. But many times they are not. Anybody who has hooked up a sound system in their college dorm room or installed some speakers in their car considers themselves to be an audio expert. Audio is one of those things that can get incredibly complicated, very quickly once you start looking at the "how" things really work. A lot of the "how" is not very intuitive. It takes some study and book work to figure out how audio really works.
