About Us

CMT Sound Systems LLC started out as a small sound and entertainment side-business, and has now grown into a full live production company. Owner and President, Christopher Tekirian, started out as a musician in 4th grade. Having a background with musical instruments and performance, he was surrounded by all genres of music and artists. In 1998 he formed CMT Entertainment and Sound Systems providing DJ services, sound systems and lighting effects for all types of events. Over the next few years, he learned more about the audio industry, mainly working with some of the high school musicals, talent shows and local bands. Then in 2001 he closed the entertainment portion of the company to focus on the sound and lighting. He has traveled to many cities throughout the US gaining new knowledge in this industry. Some examples are stadium and arena rigging in Chicago, entertainment electric in Nashville, JBL Vertec/VTX training in California, Sennheiser wireless training in NYC and Yamaha digital console training in New Jersey. He also attended 3 years of training in Residential and Commercial Electrical.

Over the years, the company has grown tremendously. What started out as a home based business having only a few speakers, 1 mixer and some microphones, is now supplying everything needed for a live production event along with equipment rental services. In our New Jersey based, 2000 sq ft warehouse we store, demo and maintain our sound systems, lighting, portable staging, audio visual equipment, backline and portable generators. We also have our mobile stage and mobile generator available for larger outdoor events.

Each year we build new relationships with clients. We have many returning customers thanks to our knowledgeable staff, high quality products and competitive pricing. We strive to be a leader in the live production industry. We are here to serve all of your event production and equipment rentals needs.

Listen to what our customers have to say.

CMT ran full production (engineering, sound, lights, and staging) for our quartet’s live show. They were prompt, efficient, and the experience was top-notch. Chris was responsive and flexible throughout the planning process. There’s not much else to want from a full-service production company.

This company provided us with the equipment for our convention in NJ last week and it was great! Could not have been a better experience and Chris did a stellar job in every respect. Thanks so much!

Will be reaching out to Chris in the future!

Decided (admittedly, late in the game) that we needed a sound system setup for a lunch party we were hosting at a restaurant.  I found CMT Sound Systems online after a quick google search and Chris got right back to me with pricing and talked me through the options of what we needed for the party.

We got the agreement (very quick to get through) sorted out within a day and the price was very reasonable for we ended up getting.  Two large speakers, stands, mic & stands, wires for everything and a hook up for an ipod/iphone for music were all included for system 1.  The day of when we picked up the equipment, Chris was on-site and showed us how to setup everything, gave me some pointers on basic troubleshooting, all within 10 minutes.  We got it all loaded up in the car and set up at the party a short while later.

Everything worked perfectly – speakers provided great sound quality for the night’s speeches and music while we were eating, setup and break down were just as easy as Chris made it, adjusting sounds were easy from the back of the main speaker – it was great.  We were able to drop everything off the next day and Chris was a pleasure to work with through it all.

I will be coming back to Chris and CMT Sound Systems the next time I need to rent any sound equipment.
