Come experience the “The Spirit of Sound” by Focal at Audio Express. Focal has been a leader in the international high-end audio industry since 1979. Today, thanks to more than 35 years of expertise in designing and manufacturing speaker drivers, the brand’s innovation and its authentic high-fidelity sound are reputed worldwide. Created in 1990, the Car Audio department enabled Focal to provide car and music enthusiasts with hi-fi sound: the perfect combination of driving pleasure with the joys of audiophile sound.
Focal Products are organized into three categories:
Each category is designed for different uses and ways of listening to music. Wherever you may be, Focal has one goal: to unite you around a common passion for rich and authentic sound. Innovation, tradition, performance, and pleasure are Focal’s key values; they characterize “The Spirit of Sound”.
Though Focal has grown and expanded tremendously through the years, their headquarters, R & D, and manufacturing facilities still remain based in Saint-Etienne, France. Focal has learned that true innovation is not simply work carried out at the research level, but also a comprehensive management and direct control of all the different production phases. The latest example of this philosophy has been the introduction of Beryllium in our top products, which has now become the worldwide reference. It was not long ago that no company was even capable of producing tweeters with a pure Beryllium foil dome. Focal innovated a solution based on research and the invention of specific in-house industrial processes. Such an approach has given them an important advantage over the competition: they develop propriety technology, which allows them to consistently produce quality products using methods that they have created. This philosophy represents Focal’s entire Car Speaker range and their commitment to provide the best sounding, highest musical quality, starting with the entry level Access line to the award winning and industry benchmark, Utopia line-up. The result is a complete line of Car Speakers that has one goal: The most faithful reproduction of music and sound.”
The brand MOSCONI originated as a diversification for MOS company in the SBU car-audio market. Its history is still very short: at the end of 2008, Ivan Mosconi, driven by love for electronics and sound, brings together a team of designers and engineers with decades of experience in the professional audio sector and after a few months, in the summer of 2009, the first line of amplifiers branded Mosconi is already on the market: the AS series. Since 2006 MOS has been production, assembly, engineering and industrialization of products and electronic devices. MOS has a very simple philosophy: putting all its talent and experience in providing products and services that can help improve the everyday life of society, through a high aesthetic expression. Every day, the members of the MOS staff continue to strive towards this goal. Mosconi is dedicated to the constant pursuit of refining and improving our technologies so as to offer more efficient and intelligent products but without any compromise to our greatest strength: our unique and remarkable designs.
The love for music, details and perfection inspired Henning Gladen to develop loudspeakers and crossovers in the nineties.This led to the founding of the GLADEN brand name in 1997.Today the German aerospace engineer introduces technologies into his new designs that are more commonly used in Aerospace and Automotive industries. For instance, FEM Analysis was used to locate and improve the weak points in a basket design. Other technical issues were targeted with the same exceptional approach only to achieve one goal: Perfect sound reproduction!

Looking for the Ultimate Sound Quality?
What some of our clients have had to say about our work.
Only own exotics?
“I purchased my first car stereo for my first car from Audio Express almost nine years ago. Since then, the guys have done installations on over a half dozen vehicles for me including my 2008 Audi RS4, 2008 Porsche 997 Turbo, and most recently a 2012 McLaren MP4-12C. If you have an exotic vehicle, you can feel comfortable in using Audio Express for any of your installation needs. My favorite purchase by far would have to be the Utopia series speakers from Focal that were installed into the Porsche. It was the best sounding car audio system I have ever heard. If you want the absolute best, you want Focal, and Audio Express. I wouldn’t trust anyone else in Richmond for my car audio and electronics needs.” –Taylor Christian
Is versatility necessary?
“For over ten years I have trusted the professionals at Audio Express for not only the installation of intricate audio/video systems in our buses here at Groome Transportation, but also many high-end audio systems in my personal vehicles. They have performed installations in everything from my Malibu wakeboard boat, to my 68’ Mustang. Most recently I outfitted my 2013 Ferrari California with a complete Focal audio system and a backup camera interface. It sounds amazing! I couldn’t be happier. The Focal speakers are worth every penny. You can trust the experts at Audio Express with your vehicle, and they will be there to stand behind their products and installation after the sale.” –Vince Groome, CEO Groome Transportation
Spoiled by great sound?
“Our first experience with Audio Express was with our Chris Craft boat that we keep at our river house. We were so amazed at the sound quality of the Focal speakers, and pleased with the service at Audio Express, that we didn’t hesitate to bring them our brand new Porsche Cayenne, literally straight from the dealership at the time of purchase. We had grown so accustomed to the Focal sound that we had to have it in our new vehicle. The factory stereo system couldn’t even compare. I also brought them my Chevrolet work truck for a Focal audio system overhaul. It’s easy to get spoiled by Focal, and Audio Express.” –Bobby Sandford
Need personal delivery?
“I recently purchased a high-end audio system for my truck along with some upgrades to the interior. The outcome was nothing short of superb. During the sales phase, Mr. Bagwell listened to my “wants” and proceeded to suggest a variety of products that would fulfill those “wants”. The installation phase was completed with a degree of proficiency and craftsmanship rarely seen today….absolutely superb in all respects. Finally, the delivery phase was undertaken with true professionalism as the truck was personally delivered to my home without my having to juggle vehicles. I can and I will unreservedly recommend Mr. Andy Bagwell and his business, “Audio Express” of Richmond, Virginia and Raleigh, NC to anyone. If you want it done right, have Audio Express do it.” –Chuck Sheehy
