CEO, DAVID KOMATZ
Dave Komatz started his journey with YG Acoustics as a lifelong admirer of the audio industry and an amateur speaker builder. He brings many years of entrepreneurship and expertise as well as a passion-driven-vision for the future of YG Acoustics.
Dave began his career in commercial property development, moving on to own and manage several operating companies that spanned manufacturing (Ceara Products), fabrication (Curtis Fluid Power) and Communications Product & Services (CP&S).
Through these experiences, Komatz quickly realized that the excitement of growing a company highly overshadowed the comfort of risk-free employment. When the opportunity came to join forces with Yoav Geva and lead a team and small business, the decision was simple. Fueled by a genuine passion for the science and the art, Dave has been at the helm of YG Acoustics since 2017.
CHIEF ENGINEER, YOAV GEVA
Yoav Geva’s love of audio stemmed from this musical upbringing in concert with his father’s interest in hi-fi. One day as a teenager, he told his father that he wanted to have speakers that would surpass what they had been using in the home. Wisely, Geva’s father purchased some textbooks and supplies, and a passion for speaker design was born.
Not content to accept the compromises of conventional technology, Geva set out to write his own software for speaker design – a design that would factor in the all- important aspects of phase and amplitude response. The program would be the first to produce simultaneous computation for perfect linearity in both domains (frequency response and phase). This software would become the heart of the DualCoherent technology, and YG Acoustics was established in 2002 to implement it.
Over the years, Geva developed all seven of YG Acoustics’ additional key technologies: Cabinet (2004), FocusedElimination (2007), ToroAir (2010), BilletCore (2011), ViseCoil (2015) and BilletDome (2016). In addition, he created all of YG Acoustics’ speaker models: the legacy Anat and Kipod and the current Sonja XV, Sonja 2, Hailey 2 and Carmel 2. Geva is the recipient of over 100 awards worldwide for his products and technologies.
In 2017, after 15 successful years at the helm of YG Acoustics, Geva decided to refocus solely on his true passion – speaker research and development. He sold YG Acoustics in a multi-million-dollar transaction and now remains on board as Chief Engineer under the leadership CEO David Komatz. Geva now dedicates all of his time to creating YG Acoustics’ future technological innovations.
Geva is married to Sonja, and a father of two children: Hailey and Carmel. When he’s not happily tinkering in the lab, Geva enjoys practicing taekwondo, cooking, listening to music and playing keyboards.
