Big Sound Podcast Profile: DS18 Owner Sasha Susterman, Sales Rep Jason Martin, and “Mr. DS18” Rob Ferro

Big Sound Podcast Profile: DS18 Owner Sasha Susterman, Sales Rep Jason Martin, and “Mr. DS18” Rob Ferro

As we greet the new week, the Big Jeff Audio team is hard at work preparing for our next Big Sound by Big Jeff Podcast. This Thursday June 1st at 7:30pm ET we have another show filled with audio industry stars. Our guests of the night will be John Schneid with Dynamic Sales Marketing, a representative of Kicker, Soundstream, and Dynamat. We also welcome members of the DS18 team, including Sales Rep Jason Martin, “Mr. DS18” Rob Ferro, and Owner of the company Sasha Susterman.

Sasha started DS18 with his father in their garage in hopes to supply local shops with their products. His father Alberto told him “One day we are going to be a national brand.” Though Sasha wasn’t convinced at the time he soon knew DS18 could make huge waves in the audio industry. Today, the company provides equipment all over the world and has factories in Korea, Brazil, and China. From that first amplifier they have expanded their product line to over 200 high quality audio products. Now, the owner and some of his team will talk with Big Jeff about their journey and what’s next for the rapidly growing company.

Jason Martin is a territory manager for DS18 and is charged with maximizing growth with distributors and exploring new business opportunities in his territory. Jason has been involved in the audio world for many years but got his start in the automotive industry first distributing accessories like shift knobs, pedals, and muffler tips in 2000. From there he worked for various audio distributors before joining DS18 in 2016.

Our third guest from DS18 is Mr. DS18 himself Rob Ferro. Rob is the public image for the brand and can be found on many of the social media posts, PR and car shows for DS18. He found his passion for car audio as a teen; when he got his first car, he saved his money to install two 12” subwoofers. Now at DS18, Rob helps the company with research and development by keeping up with customers and trends.

DS18 is working on some exciting new product lines in the power sports space. They will be made available for some of the most popular powersports vehicles including Slingshot, SXS/RZR CANAM, Bronco 6th gen, and some new Jeep applications. “… Honestly I can’t explain how excited I could be!” said Ferro about the new releases.

We will discuss all this and more with our guests and give away some cool equipment. Watch the show on any of the Big Jeff Audio social media accounts to see if you can win. We are thrilled to have members of the DS18 team join us for our next Big Sound podcast this Thursday, June 1st. See you all there!
