None has exemplified this more than ProSource and Klipsch!”

We appreciate the collaboration that has existed between us over the years,” said Dave Workman, CEO and President of ProSource. “Klipsch has been an exceptional partner and an essential contributor to the members’ remarkable sales growth in the speaker category.
