Competitive Audio opened its doors on Memorial Day weekend of 1992. The store started as a little "Mom and Pop" business with Alice and Tom Johannsen at the helm. Located at the corner of Lombard and Glenstone in Springfield, MO, the original store was a modest 20 X 30 store-front with no installation bays. Yes, we did our installs in the rain and snow! There were four employees - two installers and two salesmen, and only $10,000 in product on hand. "If we had more than 10 customers in the store", stated Tom, "we could hardly walk around without bumping into someone."
Two and a half years later, we outgrew the sparse locale and moved to our current location at 201 N. Glenstone in Springfield. We tripled the showroom size and have a 3-car installation bay. Shortly after opening at this location, we gained access to the building next door. That building is now our Custom Window Tint area. In 2006 Tom and Alice retired from Competitive Audio, fully confident in the experienced staff to carry on the store's tradition of providing top level mobile entertainment.
In 2007, ownership of the company shifted to a locally owned corporation, CMT Group Inc. The change allowed us to be able to undergo some much needed changes and improvements. For example, the new web site your'e visiting right now. The goal is to make Competitive Audio a better place for you to shop, with improved car audio displays, some new talent and some fresh looks. You're gonna like it.
We have been SPL World Champions five times. As we evolved from basic parking lot installations to the turning out legions of competition winning vehicles, we never lost sight of being the same store when it comes to friendly, personalized service. Our friendly, knowledgeable sales staff and installation crew PRIDE themselves on our EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE. Come in and let us show you what Competitive Audio can do to enhance and expand your in-vehicle experience. Discover why so many people turn to Competitive Audio for all their mobile electronics needs.
