Don Houde – Founder / President
In the 60’s, Don Houde could be found working alongside his father,

perform electronic repairs; service and treat customers well. After completing
college and touring in the professional sound industry, Don opened the
doors to his own business. He established Audio Concepts in 1975 as a
