Read more on our history and how we are constantly gaining knowledge and experience and we offer you the opportunity to use it. Pick up the phone, send us an e-mail, post us a letter if you have to, but be sure to make contact and improve your sound system TODAY! We understand what it takes to design and build a sound system to suit your needs and requirements and of course to get your sound on the move.
1990 IN THE BEGINNING...
A radio, equalizer and a pair of 6×9’s in an old beetle – not the type of sound you’ll use to impress your friends. But this was only the beginning. Tweeters, subs and an amplifier. Out with the old and in with the new. Our History resembled in each and every install.
1995 THE OBSESSION
Our history shows that our need to improve the quality of the system and installation skills became an obsession. The obsession took us many times into the early hours of the morning. Sometimes just listening to the improved quality and sometimes driving the neighbours up the wall with pumping subs. We tried everything – JVC, Panasonic, Soundstream, Pioneer, Sony, Kenwood, Proton, Boston Acoustics, Alpine, etc. etc.
FEBRUARY 2002 OFFICIAL RECORD HOLDERS...
152.2db South African record holders with 2 x 10″ subs and one amplifier, one standard car battery in one standard corsa. Our equipment was never sponsored or modified!
2002 COMPETITIVE EDGE...
A unique self designed enclosure and a home made 7.5″ aeroport gave us the competitive edge in the SPL arena. Till today many have tried but no one has succeeded in duplicating the port. This gave us the advantage over the competition to become record holders at both dB Drags & IASCA at the same time. Breaking the record is one thing but not enough – we went back the same day to the same competition and break our own record! We broke more records throughout 2002 (mentioning them all will keep you here all day) We were named competitors of the year by Rockford Fosgate.
2005 OUR FIRST SOUND QUALITY ENTRY WINS 1ST PLACE…
Some said it couldn’t be done but we proved them wrong again. The challenge was to build a bakkie that would not only be a good demo vehicle, but also be competitive in the sound quality arena. The Mazda Rustler bakkie took us six weeks to complete and we decided to enter it in our first IASCA sound quality competition. We got 1st place trophy for our efforts. This we accomplished against cars with a much deeper and wider front stage than the bakkie.
2006 THE YEAR OF NEW BEGINNINGS
Up until 2006, we gained lots of experience gauging what works in the industry as far as product knowledge and installation techniques are concerned. To achieve this we did not only make new contacts, but we had a desire to be on our own. Starting from a double garage at home, extending Acoustic Audio to what it is today and the rest is history.
2008 THE START OF SOUND QUALITY PRODUCTS
We just had to be different by building the best sounding demo cars in the country. With innovative designs and thinking outside the box approach, we knew that the success of any good sounding car starts at the installation. History in the making.
2010 EXTENDING THE WORKSHOP
Bigger and better projects required a bigger workshop area and we extended the workshop and built our first offices as well as stockroom. We had space to work on 3 cars and purchased a lot more wood working machines.
2015 NEW BUSINESS PREMISES
The opportunity presented itself for us to buy a business property to work from. Not only did we have a 130sqm workshop but we built a cutting room and shop front with a total floor space of 220sqm. Using our history and experience to create the best environment for building great sounding systems.
2017 REACHING OUT TO MORE CUSTOMERS
The idea originated to start an online store and a new website to reach out to more customers that shop online. This not only helps to advertise our services and pricing on various platforms but it puts us in a position to interact in a much more effective way as well. Embedding more spectacular achievements in our history.
LAUNCH IN 2018
The building of the new shop front is completed which enables us to display some of our work as well as our new modern upmarket display cabinets that displays our latest equipment. We also have a demo facility available for customers that want to listen to the products we have to offer. Be part of our history and have your install done by us.
