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.


I first started working in the home theater / 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 went on to design, build, and implement 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.
