"It is the responsibility of the manufacturer’s representative to function as an extension of the companies represented, not as a self-serving entity."

Car Audio

The perfect car audio system is not necessarily the loudest one, or the most expensive one. It's the one that best meets the needs of the customer. In that regard, the audio category is very much NOT a "one size fits all" part of 12-Volt. So no matter how stocked a brand new car from the factory may be, it will never be the ideal fit off the lot for the average consumer.

Security & Remote Start

Protecting their investment is a huge priority for many car owners, while many may simply enjoy the convenience an advanced car security system provides. Two-way paging, GPS tracking, keyless entry, remote start, and even remote vehicle operation are all possible with varying levels of 12-Volt security systems.

After-market Bells and Whistles

Video displays, GPS, Bluetooth, iPod/MP3 integration, smart phone integration, HD Radio, Satellite TV, window tint, collision avoidance, sound dampening, rearview cameras, rainbows, unicorns, and many more things sprinkled with magical fairy dust!

After-market add-ons are a car AV lovers dream.

While some have said the glory days of car audio are passed, we have found new successes and opportunities around every corner! Our numbers show time and time again that there are many categories within Car & Marine AV that provide tremendous growth for both brand manufacturers and dealers and retailers. For instance, the necessity to integrate smartphone technology (Bluetooth, Nav, Online Radio, security, etc.) into any vehicle regardless of make, model or year has created a boom in the industry and opened new doors.

Similar to the Custom Home AV Channel, Car & Marine AV as a category comes with the added benefit of distribution support through our sister-company Custom Plus Distributing. Dealers and retailers benefit because they're able to "cherry pick" products without the pressure of meeting volume requirements, while manufacturers benefit through both increased channel exposure and fulfillment options for online sales.
