The One & Only 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 and Carmel 2. Geva is the recipient of over 100 awards worldwide for his products and technologies.
In 2017, after fifteen successful years at the helm of YG Acoustics™, Geva decided to refocus solely on his true passion – speaker research and development. He sold a portion of YG Acoustics™ in a multi-million-dollar transaction and now retains partial ownership with his partner, 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.
YG AcousticsTM CEO, Dave Komatz
Dave Komatz started his journey with YG Acoustics™ as a lifelong admirer of the audio industry and an amateur speaker builder. He comes to the audio indsutry after many years of entrepreneurship and expertise in growing small business.
Dave began his career in commercial property development, moving on to own and manage several operating companies that spanned from manufacturing (Ceara Products), fabrication (Curtis Fluid Power) to 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 run a business with momentous potential and a space where he has genuine interest and passion, the decision to partner was simple. Dave took over as CEO of YG Acoustics™ in August, 2017.
