When he was twelve years old, Gerard Doyle, who would later become the owner of Doyle Audio Engineering, saved up enough money to buy a wood lathe. He used it to make lampshades that were sold to friends and neighbours, and this sparked a passion for woodworking that would put a stamp of superior quality on all products manufactured by Doyle Audio Engineering.
Doyle Audio Engineering was founded in May, 1981. Unlike most fledgling businesses, this one did not have to struggle in order to gain a foothold in the music industry. Founder Gerard Doyle brought with him a passion for creating perfect sound that caught the attention of Doyle Audio Engineering’s first customer, Geddy Lee.
Since then, Doyle Audio Engineering has served a number of top Juno Award winning musicians, including the likes of Sarah McLachlan and David Henman of April Wine. Established musicians who depend on reliable sound systems, love the durability and superb sonic quality of Doyle products. Musicians who are just starting out love the fact that they can get affordable superior sound that fits inside a smaller venue.
Since 1997, Doyle sound systems have graced Ciniplex theatres across Canada. In fifteen years and 330 systems, there has not been a single report of failure.
Doyle Audio Engineering uses only the best components that can withstand a wide variety of conditions. Their durability in the face of extreme heat or cold, rain, wind and humidity, makes them a natural choice for outdoor venues. Doyle Audio Engineering has been serving the Wakestock event for several years, and the products have never failed to perform perfectly in the hot and humid conditions.
Doyle Audio Engineering has as its clients a number of churches and recreational centres. These kinds of venues face some unique acoustic challenges, and the company’s experts visit the venue and do a complete analysis of what the audio needs are. They then go back to the factory and custom-build a solution just for that customer.
Doyle sound systems are being increasingly used by people building home theatres. The products, which can be customized to work in a room of any size or shape, are a popular choice for movie affectionados who want only the best sound in their homes.
