Dynamic Audio Designs makes run of it in The Old Bag Factory

GOSHEN — Josh Gobble customizes cars and trucks by installing speaker systems and other electronics at his business, Dynamic Audio Designs, located at The Old Bag Factory.

“I try to offer the most premium installations I can and putting in the effort to do so,” Gobble said. “I don’t want anybody to say ‘Oh, don’t go to him.’ I want to be the ‘premiere’ shop in the area and am striving towards that goal.”

Prior to opening his shop in June 2011, Gobble worked for “every stereo shop in the area,” he said. However, he wanted to branch out on his own, so he subcontracted out of his home and worked for some other shops.

“I met the (Old Bag Factory) owner, James (Rupright), through a mutual friend and he gave me a great price,” Gobble said. “I love it here. I have a lot of space to work here and do everything.”

His shop entrance is on Chicago Avenue and he has room for a complete woodshop and fiberglass fabrication and he hopes to eventually have a showroom to display equipment complete with a sound room, “where people can come in to listen, see and touch equipment­­ — an interactive display,” Gobble said.

Right now, he refers to himself as a “one-man show” with hopes of hiring some employees sometime soon.

And he’s not done any sort of advertising, except through Facebook and by word of mouth.

“If someone comes to me with a custom job, I take it on,” he said. “I want to make each customer happy so they come back and also spread the word.”

Gobble recently did a stereo system for a customer who’s truck he customized for sound competitions that includes three alternators, seven batteries and 13,000 watt amplifiers.

“It’s so loud, it takes your breath away,” he said smiling. “I went way beyond the customer’s budget to show what I can do. I won a few trophies there (at sound competitions).”

He’s added more speakers on door panels for customers and he’s done a plenty of iPhone integration so drivers can have their hands-free while talking or listening to music on their equipment.

“I do mobile video systems or navigational systems,” Gobble said. “Anything after market I can do, a complete customization aside from painting and seating.”

Even safety features can be customized for customers, like back-up cameras and back-up sensors.

“I installed a thermal imaging camera for a customer who wanted to protect his expensive vehicle from hitting deer while driving on country roads,” the shop owner said. “I’ve even had customers ask me to install safes in their vehicles.”

Since it’s the winter season now, he said he offers a variety of remote starter systems and window tinting.

The brightness of snow causes some customers to tint their windows, he added.

“Remote starters and window tinting are the bread and butter of my business and the majority of my income,” he said. “I offer lifetime warranties on all my installation. ... No job is too small.”
