Business Description & Vision
The purpose of Limitless Innovative Solutions LLC is to bring the most satisfactory and knowledgeable experience to the installation of aftermarket integration and custom fabrication of mobile electronics products in the Kansas City Market. We implement one of a kind sales advising, installation procedures, and techniques in order to maximize the satisfaction of our clientele. Our shops continuous growth of knowledge and customer satisfaction will keep us at the forefront of technology releases and customer relations, maintaining steady continuous growth of customer base and word of mouth referrals! Thank you all for that!
Who we are...
Our main focuses are on education, customer satisfaction, and convenience. Limitless Innovative Solutions LLC, also known as LIS Audio, prides ourselves on how accurate we can zone in on exactly what the client wants for their specific application within their price range. The products we have specifically selected, are known for their high quality and customer satisfaction to ensure everyone is taken care of from the beginning to end of the installation, and beyond.
What we do!
Our main goal at Limitless Innovative Solutions LLC is to be the first business everyone thinks of when it comes to learning about the integration and installation of 12 Volt accessories in vehicles. The image that LIS Audio upholds is not that of the average Car Audio installation shop, or even that of any shop in the Kansas City area, pertaining to the processes implemented from beginning to end of each job performed. These unique practices separate LIS Audio from the competition so drastically that we hardly be referred to as simply a car stereo store. As we like to say, “Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care!”
Business Mission & Culture
Limitless Innovative Solutions LLC was established by Justice Berry and Cameron Powell on December 2, 2016. The owners of LIS Audio are the Lead Management Sales and Lead Fabrication Techs of the shop, also the trainers of newly hired employees. Each tech that puts their hands on a vehicle in the LIS Audio workshop, possibly other than Professional Car Detailers, will hold Certifications. Justice "JAX" Berry and Cameron "Chimpo" Powell are the founders and partnered owners of Limitless Innovative Solutions, LLC.
When arriving at LIS Audio in Spring Hill, Kansas the first thought is typically “Wow, this is in the middle of nowhere.” We feel this thought, combined with our cutting-edge surveillance greatly decreases the chances of loitering, walk-in traffic and possible burglary. As you enter the front door, you see the reception area, which can home two receptionists and a small demo space next to a bright open window directly to the right.
Continue straight, and you will see the doors for the office, inventory room, staff lounge, and customer bathroom, and drinking fountain. Directly to the left is a tall red hand rail, separating the carpeted entrance walkway, from the large shiny garage cement floor that can easily fit 6-8 vehicles comfortably. The flowing clean white walls and huge mirrors for auto tinting at the far end of the garage open up the space even more. There is a separate restroom at the far end of the shop just for the Techs, providing customers with a clean restroom.
The first thing you will notice about the garage space is that we almost always have a car displaying our custom fabrication work, one of many cars that will always be in and out of the workshop purely for demo sake. The second thing that is typically pointed out, is the lack of customer lounge area and/or seating. This is due to the fact that we prefer the client who wants to get more high end work done at the workshop to also be willing to drop the vehicle off and not expect to wait for it to be finished. This makes the installation process much more seamless, as well as gives the customer an opportunity to keep their life going and by making it capable for us to do it right the first time!

Cameron “Chimpo” Powell
Co-Owner of Limitless Innovative Solutions, LLC
Fabricator and Technician
“Nobody cares how much you know until they know how much you care.”
Cameron Powell LIS Audio Co-Owner and Fabricator, also known as Chimpo, has been dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge in car audio from a very young age. His first installation being a 12” sub and amp combo at the age of 14 into his mother's 2000 Grand Prix sedan, and at the ripe age of 16 he made his first attempt at a custom fiberglass subwoofer enclosure. After some years and attending college towards a degree in automotive technology, Cameron decided to pursue car audio as his full time job. Forging this new path he gained a greater part of his knowledge and troubleshooting skills by administering on the Car Audio Advice Facebook page, helping it to grow to over 10K followers before stepping down as an admin. In 2008 Chimpo tried his hand at opening his own installation business with his long time childhood friend Curtis Lear, which was call, Chimpo Installation Audio "CIA." In late 2009 he decided to move to Portland, Oregon to gain more education and experience for his Professional Car Audio career.
In Portland, Cameron got a position as a car audio installation technician working for Car Toys, which at the time was one of the largest car audio installation corporations in the nation. In 2011 he gained his first certificate and became a Mobile Electronics Certified Professional, with his eyes always on the next certification. Working for a shop so close to the ocean and the mountains gave Cameron a ton of exposure with Marine and UTV installation and fabrication. By 2012 Cameron had migrated back to the Kansas City area from the greater Northwest with a plethora of professional experience, knowledge and industry connections. Once back in the Midwest he applied and was immediately hired on as an audio tech and sales advisor at Tint World Kansas City where he honed his skills even further. Working full time as an audio tech and sales advisor, he also helped with social marketing, shop renovation, event coordination and mobile on-site installation. At this point Chimpo Installation Audio was temporarily reopened to get take care of some long term clientele.
“If you never ask it is always a no.”
While gaining more experience and exposure working for the number 1 retailer in the nation in 2014, he also gained more certifications in the pursuit of knowledge. By 2015, nearing the end of his Tint World employment, he gained 3 more certificates. One from Jason Kranitz at Kingpin University in Custom Fabrication and Advanced Troubleshooting as well as two in Customer Satisfaction from Del Ellis for Customer Satisfaction Training Level 1 and Level 2. Customer satisfaction had always been extremely important to Cameron in the world of retail but Del Ellis helped him maximize the potential to satisfy each and every customer. From here he went to a smaller local shop that did a ton of car audio competition builds and held Midwest SPL events, which gave him an even better understanding of what it takes to gain output in many different vehicle applications.
Cameron had a new title as lead tech and custom fabricator at the new job at this local shop, where he first met Justice Berry, future business partner. One thing that he held onto throughout all of the shops he invested time into was a very solid and loyal client base, many of which kept him busy after hours doing work on the side. Centering his actions around customer service and his craftsmanship around knowledge, it made it difficult for his clients to want to get their audio installed with anyone else. Naturally, because of his ambitious nature and the constant limitations of the companies he worked for previously, it was only a matter time before he went his own route and opened a shop with no cap to knowledge or customer satisfaction. After meeting Justice and realising their passions and goals in car audio were identical, they decided to make a move and open a new shop in Kansas City that was fresh and hip the audio industry and it's workings!
December 2nd, 2016 Cameron became Co-Owner of Limitless Innovative Solutions LLC in Spring Hill, Kansas. Pooling his clientele with Justice Berry's clientele they jumped straight in and started dominating the mobile electronics custom fabrication market in Kansas City. By January 2017 LIS Audio gained national attention by being featured in Mobile Electronics Magazine as an up and coming fabrication shop! Cameron was voted a Top 50 Installer of the Year in the 2018 Mobile Electronics Industry Awards, along with LIS Audio being recognized as a 2018 Top 50 Retailer of the Year. There are many plans for the shops future but one he plans to implement is educational courses open to the public teaching How-To’s of car audio installation and fabrication. Cameron Powell plans to help LIS Audio become the best car audio installation and fabrication resource in Kansas City. So, in pure LIS fashion, make sure you #StayTuned…
Justice “Jax” Berry
Co-Owner of Limitless Innovative Solutions, LLC
Fabricator and Technician
Music has always been a driving force behind any hobby Justice had a passion for. He understood the importance of music from a young age and that for millions of people music brings a release. As far back as he can remember, there has always been music played at higher, than some would say, “healthy volume.” He saw how that brought happiness to those around him.
When Justice was 14, he took a trip to visit family members in another state. Upon arrival, he was met by his cousin that had a passion for audio as well. His Cousin gave him a subwoofer in an enclosure and told him, “Merry Christmas.” Once he returned home from the trip, the only thing he could think about was installing the woofer. With his father providing an amp kit, an amplifier, and a few tips, having knowledge from when he used to wire up systems in his day; Justice spent the first six hours of Christmas in the garage, wiring up his first system. That six hour install created the passion for car audio that still drives him to this day.
Once in High School, Justice took up more of an interest in the fabrication side of audio. He decided to take the woodshop course they had to offer. After learning the correct use of the necessary tools needed, he began building his own enclosures. As he built more enclosures, peers began requesting them from him. As more peers requested for his enclosures, they also needed the equipment to be installed. Naturally, Justice took the knowledge he had accumulated and jumped into installing stereo systems.
When Justice left for college, he had to readjust his schedule, which did not allow for much of his installations and enclosure building. His focus turned to academic studies and his commitment to athletics. Although Justice was not able to get his hands on car audio, that did not stop his passion for audio. He kept a nice home audio system with him throughout college.
In 2014, Justice returned to Kansas from Indiana to finish up his degree and football career at Baker University. That spring, Justice attended an audio competition at the local audio shop. At that competition he met, future partner, Cameron “Chimpo“ Powell. As they began discussing different ideas about audio, Justice realized what he truly wanted to do. He knew that he needed to become a part of the audio industry, no matter what he had to do to get there. Chimpo said to Justice, “If you’re really serious about it, then prove it.” After that day, Justice began doing everything he could to refine his skills and knowledge about car audio and 12 volt electronics.
In September of 2015, Justice landed a position as an audio technician at Best Buy. There, he received experience in customer service from front end of a transaction, to final product out of the door. Justice received his MECP Certification during his tenure at Best Buy, which was around the same time he received his Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology from Baker University. As Justice held his position at Best Buy, he also looked for other options to further his experiences in audio. He continually checked for position openings at audio shops that did more advanced work than what he was seeing in his current position. Justice eventually received that opportunity and it just happened to be alongside Chimpo at the shop he had been Lead Audio Technician for.
On December 2, 2016, Justice and Chimpo officially birthed, Limitless Innovative Solutions, LLC. Marrying their clientele base, they jumped in and went straight to work. By January first, LIS Audio received its first notoriety from Mobile Electronics Magazine, writing about LIS Audio being an up and coming custom fabrication shop in the Midwest.
Honorable Mentions and Accolades
Mobile Electronics Magazine January 2017 Feature
Within the first two months of LIS Audio officially being up and running, we received national recognition by having a full page article in Mobile Electronics Magazine. The entire January issue was centered around Innovation which seemed fitting for Limitless Innovative Solutions to receive a highlight on the subject. The article goes into depth about how LIS Audio holds customer satisfaction and knowledge to a very high standard, thus making Installation and Innovation a seamless process. It focuses on the fact that Kansas City had yet to receive a high quality and current car audio fabrication shop until now.
Seeing as how Mobile Electronics Magazine awards the Top 100 Installers and Top 100 Retailers in the nation every year, being the epitome of the audio industry standard, this recognition for LIS Audio is a great honor! LIS Audio plans to continuously grow in knowledge and innovation, and will consistently shoot for the top spot of the best shops in Kansas City. Limitless Innovative Solutions strives to display the ideal image of what the industry standard in car audio is growing to be! We believe in being Limitless in the pursuit of knowledge, Innovative in our process and techniques, putting full effort into finding Solutions for any situation!

World Of Wheels Kansas City 2017
In February there are to large events many men pay attention to in the Kansas City are, Valentines Day and the World of Wheels car show! 2017 marks the very first year that Limitless Innovate Solutions, LLC got to show off our talents at the largest indoor car show in the city. John Taton has a booth near the center every season where LIS Audio staff members decide to make our home base for the event. Him being one of our first custom build clients to enter our shop as soon as it opened, its only fitting to keep good company.
This 3 day event is always a fun time for the entire family and includes many different classes of vehicles. While walking the giant floor of the Kansas City Convention Center full of show quality cars you can see vehicles from classic restoration to fully modified imports, exotics and extremely lifted trucks, lowrider and even tow trucks that hold their own categories. Aside from the sea of super clean vehicles there are also many booths planted for entertainment. Like RC car track, collectible memorabilia stands, celebrity meet and greats, and even the infamous root beer stand! Make sure you stop by to say HI when your at the next World of Wheels show!
KC Showdown Car, Turck & Bike Show 2017
This car show is the first and to date the only show that LIS Audio sponsors. Organized and made possible by Denny Eddy and his family with the Next Step organization. For 2017 the show was a 1 day event at Stone Gate Motor Plaza and with the first show being rescheduled and on Labor Day weekend we still had a fantastic turn out! There were plenty awards to be won and prizes to be raffled off at this show as well. Good enough to have to move venues for the 2018 car show and turn it into more of a family affair.
LIS Audio built a custom stereo cooler to raffle off for charity at this car show. The event is open to all makes and models and offers many different classes to enter and possibly take home a trophy. The entire event is thrown to raise awareness and to collect donations for the charity and a family or two the the Eddy's have set to receive the donations collected from the show. We're proud to sponsor this event and many more with the Eddy family in the future! The Kansas City car community is so awesome!!
SEMA 2017 Car Show Exhibit with Maxxsonics
Jc Fisher of The Texas Tenors, came to LIS Audio to have his Retrobuilt Super Cobra Mustang finished with a complete MB Quart audio system to keep up with the insanely loud Pro Charger attached to the 5.0 Coyote motor, and roaring exhaust! Maxxsonics, the parent company of MB Quart invited Retrobuilt Motors and LIS Audio to the 2017 SEMA Car Show to exhibit the combined work we did on Jc's Super Cobra. Being stationed right inside a main entrance off Paradise in a the Maxxsoincs booth right next to Chip Foose was a huge honor for LIS Audio's first SEMA Show attendance as an exhibitor!
Jc Fisher bought his 2011 Ford Mustang GT from Ford, then handed it straight over to Retrobuilt motors to have the entire vehicle retrofitted to a 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby Cobra "Eleanor" prototype. The entire exterior was revamped, the upholstery was replaced with ultra leather and brushed aluminum metal panels were installed on the doors to give the driver a retro feel while in the vehicle. When the vehicle arrived we simply needed to add enough audio to keep up with the build, so we added custom door pods with 2 sets of speakers, 2 12" subwoofers and a 5 channel amplifier to power the entire system. Watch the video to see exactly what we had on display at the 2017 SEMA Show!
Mobile Electronics Magazine January 2018 Feature
In the beginning of 2018 LIS Audio was blessed to be featured in Mobile Electronics Magazine once again in their January edition, this time themed around "The Answer is YES!" We felt this was fitting since LIS Audio prides ourselves on being Limitless in the solutions we find for our clients problems. The article that was featured in this issue was based a description of our client Tim's 2014 Ford F150, in which we added a full LIS Audio Signature build.
The Ford F-150 has a custom center console with a 10" 2100 Series Audio Dynamics subwoofer tucked away into it, power off of a Premium Series 700.1 amplifier. We also added an AudioControl EQS and Hushmat to all four doors while replacing the speakers and to the rear cabin wall as well. The speakers we used we also Audio Dynamics 6.5" 3100 Series component speakers powered off a 1500.1 Premium Series amplifier. This stereo is sick and the magazine feature that ME Mag features goes into detail about what we customized and the entirety of the products we used for the build! Read up and watch the video for more details on the build!

World Of Wheels Kansas City 2018
We once again attended the World Of Wheels car show to support the clients that have vehicles entered to win. This year we had imports to giant trucks, from classic retro fitted muscle to classic street rods, we had a lot of content to look at! As usual we made John Taton's nearly center located booth as our home base with his '63 Ford Falcon Street rod and his classic lightly modified '68 Ford Mustang GT. We had a great time and made tons of new connections at the 2018 car show and we left super excited for the 2019 show!
This year there was an awesome line up of celebrity meet and greats as well as a crazy dirt bike freestyle event! Outside of this there were tons of other events and attractions other than just sick cars, which works well when you want to bring the family along! What us on social media for updates on where we plan to be and when we will be at the 2019 World Od Wheels show. Take a look at some of the pics below and watch the video to see a recap of the 2018 WOW show!
KC Showdown Car Show 2018
The 2018 KC Showdown car show was the first show that made LIS Audio the main sponsor of the entire event. For this show Denny and Jen coordinated with the staff at the Mid-America Ballpark, where the T-Bones play, to allow us to occupy the entire parking lot for the car show. They also opened up the stadium so that show spectaters could access the stadium restrooms and even hang out to watch the baseball team practice!
The show had a ton of categories for cars, trucks, bikes and even kids cars to enter to possibly walk away with a sick award! We had a street bike stunt team perform, a DJ to get the music going, tons of prizes to raffle off, a car audio competition, all kinds of food trucks for eats and drinks, a mobile dyno to run your car to see how much power its makes, and a whole lot more! This show had a huge turnout and we plan to go even bigger for 2019! There are currently even talks of having a 3 day show in 2020 so stay tuned!
Performance Auto & Sound 2018 Magazine Feature
In August of 2018 LIS Audio was featured in Performance Auto & Sound "Style Edition" Magazine for the first part of Brennan Vail's Nissan 350Z build which was entitle, "A Show-Ready Sound System." The article, elaborated and photographed by owners Justice Berry and Cameron Powell, goes into depth about the complete interior fabrication performed and the products used for the build. With the vehicle only being half way complete it sure did get a lot of attention at the shows it attended in the summer of 2018, including a second place award at the 2018 World Of Wheels show.
We are extremely honored and humbled to have this article in such a prestigious magazine and we hope they post Part 2 of the entire build. You can check out the pictures below to see more and follow the link for a preview of the 5th Style Edition magazine.
