Domes AV has served the Hampton Roads area for nearly four decades. We are family-owned and operated, founded by brothers Lee and Jeff Whedbee in 1980. As lifelong Chesapeake residents, we began the company with a focus on home C-Band satellite television systems. Our reputation for quality products and installations caused business to grow rapidly, and our wives Beverly and Marti soon joined the company. To meet client demand, Domes has undergone four expansions. Together, we adopted emerging technology and were front runners in pioneering the home theater concept now mimicked by other area independent retailers and big box chains.

Ready to get started with a project? Here's how our process works:
- Discussion with Design Specialist: A professional design specialist works with every customer. Your Specialist will spend time getting acquainted with your lifestyle needs, and will work with our Design and Engineering team to present the best options to fulfill those needs. Our goal is to provide you with the easiest to use, best performing home technology solutions, whatever your budget.
- Collaboration with Engineering Team: Our designers take your feedback and work with our engineering team to identify the most reliable, highest performance products available at a price point that fits your budget. Our engineering team understands how each product works together, and can ensure that everything works seamlessly together before the system even enters your home, ensuring the performance of each component and the overall performance of your complete system. Our processes ensure that you get a reliable system designed for your specific need and budget.
- Project Management: In addition to your Design Consultant, every project, regardless of size, is assigned a project manager. The Project Manager’s job is to ensure that your project runs smoothly with a focus on you receiving the best final product. The Project Manager coordinates all participants involved on a project, whether it is a simple flat screen installation or a complex job requiring interaction with architects, designers, cabinet makers, or other trades people.
Domes is honored to have been recognized by prestigious institutions such as CEPro Magazine, The Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce, The Virginian Pilot, The Beacon – as the “Best of Home Theater” in Virginia Beach, and other national and local organizations for our professional and civic contributions over the years, but we are most honored that our clients have confidently referred their family and friends to us time and time again.
We have long been involved in supporting our community through various programs and causes like the Chesapeake Regional Medical Center, Towne Bank’s annual Charity Golf Tournament, various events for the CHKD charity house at Homearama, Great Bridge Battlefield Waterways & History Foundation, and we continually support the arts and youth athletics throughout Hampton Roads.
