David Gore, Inventor of Audio Speakers
Brother, Uncle, Friend David Eugene Gore died November 1, 2020 at his home in Orange, California after a brief illness. He was born in Philadelphia, PA on April 17, 1944 to Eugene Frederick Gore and Rosina DiLullo Gore. He is survived by his brother Gregory J Gore, Furlong, Pa and sister Elissa M Gore, New York City, and two nieces: Greta Matzner-Gore (Paul Gleason) of Los Angeles and Janne Matzner-Gore Alfano (Scott Alfano) of Longwood, FL.
Dave grew up in Ambler, PA. He earned a BS in electrical engineering from Penn State University. He worked for Magnavox in Champaign, Illinois for several years before moving to Southern California in the mid 1970s to start his own company, Advanced Electrodynamic Systems. David inherited a talent for sound from his mother who was a professional musician and linguist. He expressed it by designing speakers. He constantly refined them, creating unique patented woofers and tweeters. His speakers are works of art. He fabricated most parts himself and hand built each speaker. He spent most of his time in his shop searching for the perfect design to replicate sound. He was lucky to be able to work in a field that intrigued him until the end.
Dave was generous in sharing his time with his friends. He loved conversation. He was a wonderful listener and was curious about all aspects of the world around him. He especially loved share his creative process: to explore every aspect of his designs (the components, the cases, the way sound waves move) in detail. And he could fix anything! We will all miss him very much.
