We will have our annual Blues & Jazz Open House on Saturday, June 15 from 3 PM to 10 PM, and we welcome you to stop in. We will be hosting food and drinks and have some of our newest arrivals in home audio, video and custom integration on display.
The event includes 5 stages of music, a family fun zone, food and retail vendors, and much more. The family friendly festival will feature world-class music on multiple stages.
In our opinion, this is one of the best Music Festivals held in Columbus Ohio. There are great range of talent, spanning jazz, gospel, blues and blues rock. The open pavilion stages make attending events very easy, and there are plenty of chairs. We have always been particularly impressed with some of the musical talent that comes through each year. There are tents with arts, crafts and gifts. All in all, this is a true festival, and a terrific showcase for great music right here in Columbus.

SATURDAY, august 24 & 25, 2024
If you’re an audio enthusiast and love cars, you should go!
World class high performance automotive audio enthusiasts compete for trophies at the Fortress in Obetz, OH. This highly competitive car audio showdown includes our company president, John Senters who along with other highly competitive entrants will be battling for the right to attend the National Competition Event.
Car audio is much like home audio in that the goals are the same: quality sound with good soundstage, accuracy of musical instruments, natural voicing, bass performance with depth and texture, the list is long, just as it is in the home. And just like home audio, the environment plays a key aspect in the sound quality.
Creating great car sound is a more difficult than in the home with a far smaller listening environment with highly reflective sheets of glass that cannot be damped, bass that is often placed behind you, and speakers that are literally tens of inches away from your ears, rather than tens of feet away… the list is long and the challenge is great.
The other challenges are the physical and electrical installation. In the home, the setup is relatively straightforward, few people build their equipment into their home with custom fabrication. In the car, all the components are custom installed, wires routed and custom enclosures with leathers, fabrics or materials are fabricated to the specific vehicle’s appearance and color scheme. The build quality is often first-rate and the quality of materials and attention to detail, exceptional. Every car has its own unique set of acoustic challenges, and how the competitor addresses those, while staying true to their own acoustic goals and that of the judges makes for an interesting event.
Just like at any car show, competitors are happy to share their thoughts about their solution and the car itself. Often the cars are modified with upgraded engines, suspensions, wheels, dampening upgrades all in the spirit of improving the car’s automotive audio and performance. Selection of components, electrical and circuit design, and craftsmanship of installation and overall acoustic performance are all key parameters of judging. You will be impressed at the high level of execution and craftsmanship.
Come out and join John Senters and Team Genesis for a great day with cars battling for top honors in high performance audio at the Fortress in Obetz. We hope to see you there.
