In the heart of Littleton, PDA Road Gear stands as a testament to passion, expertise, and a commitment to providing the best in car audio and security systems. The journey began when the founder, Pat Dunahay, found joy in installing sound systems in his own vehicles. The turning point came when a generous opportunity arose to work for a car radio shop at the age of 19. For the next five years, Pat honed his skills and knowledge, laying the foundation for the thriving business he would create.

In 1980, Pat branched out on his own and established PDA Road Gear. The first two decades the business was located in Englewood, and for the last 24 years, PDA Road Gear has proudly called Littleton home. The strategic move was driven by the belief that the location was a perfect fit, with easy access to potential business from Highlands Ranch and Lone Tree.

One of the challenges faced by PDA Road Gear was the perception that their installations would create disturbances with loud sound systems. Turning this misconception into an asset, the company embraced the slogan "Disturbing the Peace," highlighting their ability to deliver powerful sound experiences without compromising the quiet nature of their surroundings.

The business model adopted by PDA Road Gear is straightforward - providing customers with precisely what they need and want, and nothing more. This commitment to excellence is encapsulated in their mantra: best brand, best prices, best technicians. While this approach might not always maximize profits, it has positioned PDA Road Gear as the oldest car radio shop in Denver, a testament to their enduring success.

PDA Road Gear's product offerings have evolved over the years to cater to the changing needs of their customers. Their diverse range includes AI drone-based security and recorders for vehicles, true active car audio products and systems, non-legal stealth radar systems, long-range affordable remote start systems, and GPS tracking systems. With a blend of experience, quality products, and a commitment to customer satisfaction, PDA Road Gear continues to be a trusted destination for car audio and security solutions, showcasing that sometimes, disrupting the peace can lead to harmonious success.
