John Dunn

COMMERCIAL SALES MANAGER

I have always had a passion for quality sound and Hi-Fi. This passion led me into getting an associate’s degree in electronics. My professional work history includes working at Texas Instruments and Lightolier Controls, including dimming and lighting controls for residential, commercial, and theater. I pursued the A/V dream and went to work with Buddy for Circuit City as a regional In Home Consultant. I have also worked with another high-end AV company as a project manager for several years. I designed system infrastructure drawings and led two tech crews. I am honored to be a part of Crown Audio Video which has the integrity and talent to support our clients. As a company, we strive to set ourselves apart in several ways: integrity, godly principles, spirit-led direction, and passion to provide value and service second to none. Anyone can sell a box. We sell value and custom-designed solutions to meet your specific needs and expectations. We are a blessed company and have doubled in revenue and infrastructure each year. Glory to God! My other passion is continually growing as a musician. I have had the opportunity to play guitar with seasoned musicians from rock to smooth jazz. I also have been a part of several praise and worship teams and ministries for over 20 years. I am blessed with a lovely wife, Priscilla. We have had the privilege of fostering children. We also have two dogs.

Tom Knittle

RESIDENTIAL SALES MANAGER

I have been in the A/V industry for over 30 years. I started in the world of high-end audio with turntables and tube amps. The industry has changed some over the years. I am amazed with how the products have changed and what can be done for a customer, residential or commercial, to make their systems do things that couldn't be done just a few years ago. As a design sales manager for Crown Audio Video, my experience ensures that our salespeople are armed with the knowledge to listen to our customers and design the system they want. Our installers show up with the products they need to complete the transaction as smoothly as possible. Little details can make the difference between just completing the job and having to make extra trips for parts to finish it. I am beyond blessed to have been married for over 20 years and have 3 children, ages 16, 14, and 11. God first, then family, then work. I promise we run our business with this as our mantra and strive each day to do what is right in all of our endeavors.

Paul Lopez

GENERAL MANAGER

As Crown Audio Video Inc.’s installation manager, I have the privilege of offering great solutions to our clients, as well as keeping our staff prepared for the next great A/V solution. I have worked on projects from design and infrastructure to high fidelity audio and visuals all over the country. This is a field I have enjoyed since I was a child. Since 1998, I have spent countless hours training and educating myself and others in the latest and greatest technologies available to our clients, from home theater to automation. When I’m not in the field or at the Crown Audio Video office, I love to spend time with my family, especially my two brilliant and fun-loving daughters. One is a volleyball, track, and basketball star, the other is a competitive cheerleader. My other passion includes building my boat, which began years ago as a small rebuild project. I truly believe the things we value most in life are the things we create and build for ourselves. Being able to work with my hands both in an out of my free time is a gift, and to share that work with others is a blessing. Thank you for letting us at Crown Audio Video Inc. share our work with you. God bless.

PROJECT MANAGER

I have been installing A/V solutions since 2007. Prior to that, I served in the United States Marine Corps. Music is one of my passions in addition to working with my hands building and fixing things. I learned the ropes of audio and video/low voltage installation in residential locations, but I also thrive in a commercial setting. I've worked at schools, churches, stadiums, and municipalities to name a few. I look forward to when new technology comes out, and I enjoy learning how products can make someone’s life easier or more enjoyable.
