About The Owner

Joshua Norman, owner and operator, is Kansas born and raised and wants to bring a “hometown” type of service to every customer! 

Josh has his degree in Music and Business and holds low-voltage certifications in audio/visual technology and networking. He is also a proud CEDIA member and is always keeping up on the latest and greatest tech!

Prior to 5by5, he was an AV technician for 10 years working in conferences and events all over the Wichita area and other parts of Kansas.

Josh started 5by5 in August of 2021 with his existing experience and long time passion for audio/video systems and all things “tech”.

Josh has primarily worked in the commercial sector but made the residential addition with 5by5 to offer service in homes as well. It has been very rewarding to elevate his customers’ entertainment experience and meet people where they are…at home.

He has lived in the Wichita area since 2010 and settled down in Derby in 2018.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Ran a Subfloor run for some gear i had in the basement. Great job. Fair price. On time and professional. Would use again

Josh was very prompt in responding to our initial message and had great communication all along the process. We had a large wall-mounted TV that we needed to be turned into a standing TV and moved to our basement, and Josh got it done quickly, perfectly and carefully. He took care of everything! I'll be going with Josh for my future tech needs! Great work! A+++

So glad found this place! Josh did an amazing job with mounting our tv above our fireplace. Initially we weren’t sure if the mount could be installed due to the stone wall but Josh went above and beyond and made sure it happened. He really explains everything thoroughly and only provides the best recommendations. Without a doubt, would use Josh and this company again and recommend to others!
