Directed Electronics, the specialty marketer of mobile electronics, has been acquired by the Miami, Fla.-based investment firm Trivest. Both parties are privately held, and terms were not disclosed.

Directed, which markets security and other products under the Hornet, Python, Sidewinder, Viper and Wasp brands, will continue to be headed by founders Darrell and Kathy Issa, and current members of its senior management team.

However, Darrell Issa, who is the current CEA chairman and a member of the EIA board of governors, will have to relinquish his corporate and association responsibilities if he is successful this fall in his campaign among San Diego voters for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
