Kicker Logo

Steve Irby is President and Founder of Stillwater Designs, maker of Kicker audio products for cars, boats, motorcycles, UTVs, and portable Lifestyle products. His love of music was expressed during high school and college as a keyboard player in various rock-n-roll bands. After a year of graduate study at Oklahoma State University, Steve founded Stillwater Designs with his roommate.

 In 1980 Steve developed the original Kicker, a full range enclosed speaker system designed to fit behind the seat in a standard cab pickup truck. This was a first-of-its-kind product innovation which is why similar products of many brands came to be known generically as Kicker-boxes. This single innovative product launched a car audio brand with hundreds of models sold through a network of retail dealers in all 50 US states and more than 60 countries on 6 continents.

Steve maintains a hands-on approach to every aspect of the remarkably successful business, but his passions remain in product design and development. No product receives final production authorization before Steve and his team has approved the product through rigorous listening tests.
