Sound is a sacred force. It has the power to send us across time, place, and states of mind as we navigate the world. On the street, the trail, the water, or at home, the ultimate sound system is a portal to a limitless realm. Worlds of possibility to discover, explore, and make our own. Wired into our DNA, MTX Audio gear is designed to power this journey.
Because without sound, the journey — and the experience — is nothing.
What started with one man in a small garage in a Chicago suburb grew to international fame on the back of numerous industry innovations and unforgettable pop-culture splashes like Pimp My Ride. To see the timeline of these and many other awards and achievements, visit our history page.
Loyd Ivey, our founder, was a true pioneer and leader in the car audio industry. His remarkable contributions and dedication to the field earned him a prestigious honor from the Consumer Technology Association in 2013, recognizing his decades of service on CTA Executive Boards.
Building on his incredible legacy, Loyd Ivey made a bold move in 2016. With pride and confidence in the next generation, he promoted his son, John Ivey, to the position of President of MTX Audio. John, who previously ran Mitek's consumer divisions from 2003 to 2007 and then ventured into the commercial divisions, returned to MTX Audio to take over the reins and continue the legacy.
