All Pro Sound also sells recording systems, keyboards, guitars, drums, microphones, mixers, loudspeakers, signal processors, and other equipment.

History[edit]

Richard Couture started All Pro Sound as a commercial installation company in 1980 in Pensacola, Florida, and gradually expanded into residential installation and catalog sales.[2] In 2007, Couture sold the company to a group of private investors. In January 2011, All Pro Sound went out of business, and the liquidated business was sold to Chuck Surack and was re-established as AP Sound, Inc. dba All Pro Sound.

By 2010, All Pro Sound operated a 35,000-square-foot (3,300 m2) warehouse and a 10,000-square-foot (930 m2) showroom, annual sales had grown to $19 million, and Systems Contractor News had ranked All Pro Sound #34 on its list of Top 50 Integrators.[1]
