Speeda Sound just became a part of PCE, the fastest-growing player in live event production. This acquisition means exciting things for both businesses, and, more importantly, their customers.

Speeda Sound

Speeda Sound opened its doors in 1973. Helmed by brothers Mike and Larry King, Speeda Sound quickly grew into the leading provider of touring audio to the California fair/festival industry. In the California fair world, Speeda Sound’s reliability and professionalism has become as ubiquitous as their tricked-out white and yellow trucks.

Temporarily shuttered during the COVID-19 pandemic, this acquisition allows Speeda Sound to reopen and begin providing additional live event services through its new parent company: PCE.

PCE

Originally founded in 2000 as Pacific Coast Entertainment, PCE has evolved into the fastest-growing name in live event production. PCE previously acquired Professional Video Supply in 2006 and California Stage and Lighting in 2018, making the acquisition of Speeda Sound the latest milestone on a continuous, upward trajectory.

“We’re excited to bring a historic company like Speeda Sound into our portfolio,” said Ryan Steidinger, CEO of PCE. “This acquisition will give Speeda customers more access to video, lighting, staging, power, and rigging, essentially giving them a single source provider for live events. And, for PCE, it gives us great access to backline, which we were not previously able to provide in-house.”
