From design to installation and service we are the local professionals committed to meeting your audio/video needs.


We design audio/video systems to provide you with years of trouble-free operation. This is about the quality of equipment, quality of workmanship, and attention to detail. 


We stand by the equipment we install and our workmanship, we warranty both for one year free of charge.

The number one complaint we see in the industry is that many A/V contractors fail to fulfill their warranty and service obligations. At Sound Planning we are committed to offering the highest level of service, and will service not only our own installations but are happy to service systems which were installed by other contractors.


In the Commercial A/V world systems have to be as close to 100% dependable as possible. What is overlooked by most A/V contractors is that often the end user lacks the technical know-how to operate the systems they install. This becomes an even bigger problem in rooms which have multiple uses and multiple users. Sound Planning designs systems that don’t require a Ph.D. to operate, technology can be daunting but we are committed to designing systems that are easy to use.

Our History

Sound Planning was established in 1970 in Detroit, Michigan. The original principals, David Armstrong Sr. and Pete Baird, had backgrounds in broadcasting, engineering, and construction. We began our business as a sound systems contractor installing for a wide variety of customers including religious, recreational, government, residential, retail stores and restaurants.

Sound Planning began operations in Florida in 1972 and Illinois in 1974. In 1997 we began contracting in Georgia, and in 2006 we expanded into Michigan’s upper peninsula. In 2017 we completed our low voltage license requirements for Nevada, and are excited to now offer the same high level of service, expertise, and professionalism to the Reno-Tahoe region. David Armstrong Sr. & Jr. bring over 50 years of experience to these locations.

We intend to stay in business for the long term. We have seen competitors come and go because of lack of customer satisfaction. We know that we cannot afford to have unhappy customers and we will strive to make sure you receive the finest service.
