Celebrating 19 years of Business

Home of Kimberly Matte

About Us / Events

In 2010 Sound Of The Soul was founded as an off shoot and subsequent DBA of Rayburn Enterprises LLC.

In the beginning Rayburn Enterprises LLC was founded in 1998 for the purpose of Custom Home Audio and Home Automation. Thru the years Rayburn Enterprises has grown into a total Residential Electronics Company specializing in Full Home and Residential Automation from 2 channel Stereo, Home Theater Installations, Multi Room Audio to in Home Lighting, Intercom Systems and Full Home In-Wall Vacuum Systems.

Pre dating the founding of Rayburn Enterprises LLC; Ray Washburn the owner of Rayburn Enterprises LLC had a long time love of Classic and Vintage Automobiles. With the love of Classic Cars and the Founding of Rayburn Enterprises LLC it seemed a logical step that one day the company would expand into the world of Classic Cars. With that in mind the next step in the evolution of Rayburn Enterprises LLC was the founding of Sound Of The Soul Classic Car Audio.

With the opening of Sound Of The Soul; Rayburn Enterprises LLC moved into the Classic Car Audio business. With the expanding of Sound Of The Soul as only one of a handful of Car Audio specialist who only deal with Classic and Vintage automobiles thru out the United States we have steadily grown to be recognized as a leader in pre – 1980’s Car Audio Installations.

We use the best products available to bring your automobile alive with the sounds you love and enjoy. From a simple addition of FM radio to adding in Multi CD changers, MP-3 and Multi speaker systems; We can handle all of your classic automotive audio needs.

We also understand that the look of a system is as important as the sound of one. We can add in a great sound system and make it in blend in seamlessly to the look of your car.

We do all our installs by appointment only. Everyones system is a top priority and when we start a project we finish it. You will not run into endless delays or weeks of waiting for parts. We understand that getting your ride on the road is a number 1 priority.

Today, as part of our growing business we now have the opportunity to give back to the people and the community that have supported us. With that, we proudly sponsor a few Organizations as well as Charity Car Shows and Events thru out the year.

We would like to thank you for checking us out and as always if you have any questions or comments please do not hesitate to drop us a note at the contact information listed below.
