We've grown to employ over 600 people in our home state
In 1974, when Bill founded the company in the family garage in his hometown of Charlottesville, Virginia, he was really trying to fix a problem he’d experienced as a customer: how do you figure out which aftermarket car stereos and speakers will work in your vehicle? He came to the conclusion that expert information, shared by people who really cared about problem-solving, was the answer. More than 6 million customers later, those principles continue to drive the business.
We’ve grown to employ over 600 people in our home state of Virginia, built tools like the Outfit My Car tool and our interactive 25,000-vehicle-strong Vehicle Fit Database, and developed technological innovations to let customers audition speakers online and shop for A/V gear with an Advisor steering their web journey.
