Our Mission is to offer the greatest possible results within a given budget. We specialize in OEM aesthetic integration, meaning we strive to not detract from the original look or functionality of the vehicle, no matter how rare, or common. We go to great lengths to source materials that match the interior in color, feel and texture as well as hide components in sensible, safe, but serviceable locations. The end result should be a greatly improved OEM experience, not a complicated mess of added "stuff".
Sound in Motion is an authorized reseller for most of the high-quality brands at competitive prices. Visit our Products section for a substantial list of the primary brands we carry. All of our installations are performed with the utmost care and highest quality of craftsmanship by trained and experienced technicians. We offer a lifetime warranty on all of our work for as long as you own the vehicle and equipment warranty as per the manufacturer.

Meet The Team
Owner, born in Munich Germany, Derek grew up being exposed to high end home audio systems from his parents HiFi import and distribution business. The seed was planted early, but not being able to afford a house for home audio, he directed his teenage years toward Car Audio. And yes, he had a complete amplified Car Audio system functioning in his bedroom before even purchasing his first car. Over the years the caliber and complexity of the systems grew substantially. After he was introduced to IASCA, the competition bug set in. Even more elaborate systems were built and Car Audio competitions were attended and won all over the country. This led him to a job offer working at MB Quart for a few years prior to purchasing Sound in Motion in 1996. Derek is also an aviation enthusiast, private pilot and loves to be outside, travel and spend time with his family.
