DD: How long have you been in business?
Graeme: Since November 23, 2009
DD: How did you get started in car audio?
Graeme: I have always been a big music lover and dad always had his music blaring anywhere he was. When I was 15 and looking for my first car, my dad didn’t want me to get into street racing like he did, so he pushed me into big audio systems/vehicles with room instead. He thought it would be cheaper and keep me out of trouble with the cops, but boy was he wrong.
DD: What made you decide to do car audio for a living?
Graeme: Everything 12 volt started out as just something fun to do but quickly turned into a real passion for me, so I figured I would give it a shot and try to make a living with it. I have always been someone that loves to actually do stuff with my hands, build, create, and – surprise! – outdo myself. So, I couldn’t imagine being happy sitting behind a computer all day or being a salesman. Car audio has been a perfect fit for me.
DD: Does your shop specialize in anything specific?
Graeme: We are well known in our area as being “The Lighting Shop” that carries the widest range, best brands, and have a real understanding/knowledge of different lights and how they can be used in different applications. This year we are starting our push into heavy fabrication and hope to be the best fab shop around soon.
DD: How long have you been a DD Audio dealer?
Graeme: 4 years
DD: Where did you first hear about DD Audio, and why did you decide to become a DD Audio dealer?
Graeme: I first heard of DD from some random SPL shows and Acoustic Edge school in Houston. At KnowledgeFest 2014 I spent a few hours talking with Douglas Dustman from DD about the product and my concerns, and I left feeling really good about the brand. Soon after that show we placed our first order and very quickly realized that DD was not just another audio brand. Since then we have just about phased out our other audio lines.
