Since my very early days music, as well as audio and the accompanying technologies, has inspired and driven me. Thanks to the enduring motivation and support of my parents, I was educated in classical guitar. Armed with this education and several years of guitar playing, I was well prepared to lead my first semi-professional band at the age of 16. Next to my traditional studies, I continued my music by working as an assistant in numerous recording and mixing sessions, learning the ropes of audio engineering in various recording studios and in live sound situations. After earning my A&P license from Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology and numerous courses in electronics, I opened my business where I honed my skills in high end custom pro and car audio. 30 years experience in audio / electronics Product development Product management and marketing Car audio systems designer Car stereo micro controller interface Research & development Custom audio installation Marketing and sales Precedence effect testing Inventor and visionary Testing engineer Transducers Promotion & brand interest Low noise analog signal interface circuits Award-winning audio system tuner Mike Mineo Design, fabricate and specialize in components of professional car audio loudspeaker systems including: preamplifiers, audio noise gate, crossovers, line level adapters, analog to digital converters, enclosures, current balanced analog signal isolation and center channel support, acoustic and vibration testing, echo cancellation testing, low volume distortion testing , components, accessories, trouble shooting with the goal and ability to providing solutions, amplification and acoustics.
