About AVX

Audio Video Excellence was created to fulfill a growing need in the audio-video custom installation arena. In the beginning, the focus was almost exclusively on providing leading edge audio-video systems in central Alabama.

Founder Jared Lewis had worked in the local audio/video industry, but was frustrated at the inability to fully satisfy his clients' needs. So in 1999, he set out to start his own company. Read Jared's thoughts on growth, success and what sets AVX apart.

It was almost no time before AVX was being called on to provide home automation systems and designs. Except that back then, no two people agreed on exactly what that was!

The technology that has evolved from that "home automation" catchword is called systems integration. Briefly, it means that the HVAC, lighting, surveillance, home theater, even the video and audio systems continue to be self-contained systems. They are still capable of being operated independently, as in the pre systems integration days.

Only now there is an overall controller concept that marries all these systems and combines them into one very user friendly integrated control package.


AVX currently serves the entire southeast from our showroom in Homewood, Alabama.

With an in-house service department, the most competent and courteous installation technicians, the best products, as well as 12 installation/service vans on duty around the southeast, AVX is uniquely positioned to offer the most advanced service to its clients.

They deserve nothing less.

And you shouldn't settle for less either.

Knowledge & Experience

If one essential element sets AVX apart from all other A/V custom-design and installation companies it's our dedication to engineering and planning your project from the concept phase all the way through to completion. Our team of professionals work together to ensure your complete satisfaction.

Simple to Use

We've found that if our clients can't show us how to use their systems, they've wasted their money. So we go through an organized training process for all family members. It's simple and fun. And it's why our clients send us so many referrals. They love showing off their systems!
