About Us

Our History

Custom Audio Concepts was founded by D. Lynn Whitaker in the spring of 1992 in Van Wert, Ohio.

Lynn started the business in his garage and as it grew he moved into a larger location and continued to offer more products and services.

In 1997 Lynn expanded into Lima by purchasing and remodeling the old Hart Audio building.

This move continued to open up new opportunities in sales and installation of both car and home systems.

In 2000 Nathan Gast formerly of Hart Audio became a partner in Custom Audio Concepts Lima. His roots in the audio world go back to 1978.

Nathan or Nate continued to change the direction of CAC Lima to provide solutions for the increasing complex worlds of automotive, residential, commercial and house of worship.

While Custom Audio Concepts has morphed into a company with great diversity of services, it has maintained it’s commitment to excellence.
