Even though Kingpin Car & Marine Audio is a nationally recognized retailer with clientele from all over North America, their roots are securely planted in the Portland Metro area. Kingpin staff members enjoy serving their community by putting on exciting in-store and remote events, providing referrals to other locally owned businesses and supporting the local economy with their continued patronage. Wherever possible, Kingpin makes the choice to support local business just as they appreciate when local residents make the choice to choose Kingpin. Your valued business is not something to which they feel entitled; it’s something Kingpin’s talented and experienced staff work hard to earn.
