DD: How long have you been in business?
Michael: Since June 15th, 2018.
DD: How did you get started in car audio?
Michael: I’ve always been after a better sound and more bass.
DD: What made you decide to do car audio for a living?
Michael: I have been in car audio most of my life. I met my right hand man Carlos Escalante in 2014 and hired him to work with me at another shop here in Gillette. We decided we would like a shop of our own to pursue our passion of good, clean sound and custom installations. A shop that isn’t just out to make a quick dollar. Carlos, my wife Lacey and I run the store and handle all of our installs.
DD: Does your shop specialize in anything specific?
Michael: Home audio and theatre, commercial audio video and of course car audio and video. We pride ourselves in giving our clients the best quality and best install and not pushing them into something they don’t need. Together we offer everything from the complete blow your mind custom installs to basic budget minded installs — always keeping the client in mind and adding personal touches.
DD: How long have you been a DD Audio dealer?
Michael: I myself am new to DD and am totally blown away by the sound and quality of it.
DD: Where did you first hear about DD Audio, and why did you decide to become a DD Audio Dealer?
Michael: I was skeptical when Carlos first brought DD up to me. So, we brought in some entry and mid level products, and after the first few installs I was completely satisfied from an installer point and business standpoint. We haven’t built any big systems yet, but I am excited to see what the higher end product lines offer. The fact that DD Audio does so much to protect their lines is amazing in this time of online shopping. It shows me the love DD has for brick and mortar stores and that they’re also not just in it for a quick dollar.
We are just starting out here and are happy to begin our journey with DD on our side.
