About Jonah Matthes

Jonah Matthes

Jonah Matthes is the founder of The Home Theater DIY. He started this website from the ground up and loves everything about home theaters.

My Work Story

I first started working in the home theater and home entertainment space when I was 16 years old. My father owns and operates an Audio/Video business and I worked for him for many years. At first, I was an extra hand to help get tools, move equipment, etc. Eventually,, I designed, built, and implemented entire home audio/video solutions for our customers.

I worked at that job for 5+ years before moving on to a different technology-related occupation. However, I continue to consult with my father about big jobs that he has coming up, offering up any advice that I can. Even though I no longer work in the home theater space, I still admire and have a passion for the high-quality experience of watching movies, TV shows, and even playing video games.

I’ve done many different scales of projects, varying from a simple TV mounting to designing/building an entire Home Theater system including a matrix switch, surveillance system, high-speed home network, and smart home integrations. It is an amazing feeling designing a large project, implementing each piece of equipment, and seeing everything tie together as you intended. I want to help teach people about the amazing world of Home Theaters and technology in general.

Along with The Home Theater DIY, I have another tech-based website that focuses on other technology not related to home theaters. It is called SortaTechy. Check it out if you’re interested in other types of tech!

I also own and operate a digital marketing agency. I help my clients advertise their products or services by using SEO, Google Ads, Facebook Ads, Website Design, etc.
