In 1992 I took part for the first time in an auto-hifi competition. Somehow I was fascinated by the hobby-car-hifi from the outset, since all my interests were addressed in this design: cars, listening to music, hi-fi systems and modeling. After the first time I won the German Auto Hifi Championship with a friend’s car in 1994, I wanted to make more of my hobby and start a company. At this time, I was still a student of electrical engineering, thinking first of all only about an activity next to my studies. On 27.12.1994 I founded the company Automagie in a small double garage in the small village Düppenweiler in the Saarland. The advice, the sale and the professional installation of car hi-fi components, navigation systems, hands-free systems, alarm systems, positioning and multi-media systems should not let me go now. From the beginning I took advantage of my acquired knowledge from the various car Hifi competitions and, of course, from the studies for the realization of different individual customer requirements. In doing so, I have always placed great importance on the sound optimization of the installed systems and decided to use the latest PC-based measurement technology in 1995. What was initially thought of as a “secondary activity” thus developed into a fulltime job within a very short time.

In the following years numerous German championship titles (1997-2003 and 2007-2009) followed, as well as European Championship titles (1998, 2001, 2009) and an RTA world title (1997). Through the numerous successes, the press and television were attracted to me, which led to the publication of numerous very positive reports about my work. You can find some of them on this page under the heading “Press”. Among other things due to the continuing good press, the order situation was getting better and in 2002, the limits in the small double garage were finally exceeded. Numerous well-known companies from the auto-hifi industry have meanwhile built their demo vehicles from me and also the end customer business steadily increased. That is why I decided to start a new building in the municipality of Losheim am See. In March 2003, I was able to obtain the new business premises and the generous workshop. Since 2002, the topic of home cinema became more and more important for me and my customers, a new demonstration studio was built for this new building. This business segment should also continue to develop in the coming years. At this time, I could not manage the tasks anymore alone and the first employees came to it.

The perfect integration in the vehicle interior as well as the sound optimization of all components is still one of the special tasks of the company Automagie. Extensive conversions with lasered and CNC milled parts, saddlery and carpentry work, as well as plastic mold making are of course included. This is the only way to guarantee that the result meets the highest demands. After all, only a satisfied customer can prove the success sustainably. In order to achieve an optimal result when tuning complex car hi-fi systems, we now use a wide range of computer-assisted measuring systems, which can be used to analyze vehicle acoustics at the most. The latest vehicles with their integrated navigation solutions can also be used with the right technology as a control center for a high-quality retrofitted audio system. Meanwhile, well-known tuners, e.g. The company Carlsson and Novitec as well as well-known top athletes and other celebrities from all over the world to our customers.

Due to the constantly growing business area of ​​house automation, multi-room and home cinema, we will soon expand our Internet presence to our customers Also in this area some installation examples to show online.
