Home Theater: The Next Generation
This theater is very real-and very cool. Its anonymous owners had originally envisioned a traditional home theater. However, when Jay Miller, president of Acoustic Innovations, noticed that the client was a collector of “vintage” video games, an idea was born. “It adds a lot to the experience, because you are introduced to the theme when you enter the bar and ready-room area,” says Jeff Hoover, president of Audio Advisors. “It sets the mood that something cool, fun and exciting is about to happen.”
The Palm Beach Post (April 2007)
Back when Jeff Hoover was class president at Forest Hill High School, he was better known as the nut with the big car stereo. He’d swing through the parking lot of Forest Hill High in his hand-me-down red 1970 Ford Galaxie 500, blaring My Sharona at face-melting volume in a bid to impress his future wife, the homecoming queen. After graduation, he worked as a store manager at Cushman Fruit Co., but he also installed stereos and eight-track players in cars until he could make it his day job.
BADROD Racing (Oct. 2006)
Less than nine seconds after the tree lit green – 8.88, to be exact – Edmondson crossed the quarter-mile point, marking a milestone for a street legal V-Rod and eclipsing previous records that the team had set. Diener, along with team members and team owner Jeff Hoover, joined the dozens of V-Rod owners in attendance in a boisterous celebration that only a sub-9-second V-Rod run can invoke.
Residential Systems (Sept. 2003)
During the past two years, Jeff Hoover faced perhaps the most challenging tenure as CEDIA president in the Association’s 13-year history. Immediately upon taking office he faced the 9/11 crisis, followed by the worst economy in a decade and then ending with the war in Iraq. Through it all, Hoover led CEDIA into new international endeavors, increased the educational strength of the association and helped form new industry partnerships.
Residential Systems (Sept. 2002)
In September 2001, the world became a different place. Greatly overshadowed that month by the tragic events of 9/11 was the custom installation industry’s signature event, CEDIA EXPO, and the beginning of a new presidential term for the association. Just a few days before the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, CEDIA’s new president, Jeff Hoover stepped into the leadership spotlight, assuming the post held by his accomplished successor, Steve Hayes.
Crazy Like A Fox (Sept. 2001)
Some people think Jeff Hoover is a little nuts. Not only does he take extreme personal risks, like flying a Russian MiG 25 at a record 85,301 feet, but during the past year he also has tested the comfort limits of his business partners and financiers while spending millions of dollars on a monumental design center project.
