I appreciated the honesty of Chris; when I first walked in and explained what I wanted for our RV, he told me he wasn't going to sell me anything I didn't need. The install was fast and very clean. I went back to have an alarm system installed on the RV and it was more complicated then what they estimated as far as shop time. The previous owners had an inferior company install a system that failed but Chris and his installer cleaned up the mess and put in a superior system and stuck to the original estimate even though they put more time and effort into getting it done right. I plan on taking our other vehicle there for a stereo system install soon. They're great to deal with... 5 STARS all the way...

I had them install an entire system in my truck and was so impressed with the quality and craftsmanship I also had them do an entire system in my boat. All of the employees are very knowledgeable and they don't try to gouge you like the other shops in the area. I highly recommend this business to anybody needing a system in anything they own!!!!

Wonderful experience with them, Stefan went above and beyond to help me with an unfortunate stereo situation. He was very understanding, helpful, and got a stereo until my car that I'm thrilled with. All the guys are very professional and very polite. Will definitely recommend and do business with them again. Thank you all!
Tips & Advices
A capacitor is a two-terminal electrical component that is able to store energy, thus they are often found in power supplies. They can be especially important in a stereo system because they can exhibit frequency dependent behavior. What this means is they can be tailored to be used as noise filters to reduce the appearance of a frequency, or they can be used to enhance it. This is particularly effective in differentiating and isolating the ranges in a subwoofer and a tweeter, and in filtering out the potential noise or feedback from the power source.
Most aftermarket speakers are compatible with your factory stereo system. There can be exceptions, for instance, if you have speakers that need extra amplification to drive them to maximum performance, such as large subwoofers, your factory deck may not have the power to drive them adequately. They will play, but not to their potential. Basic speakers should be able to plug right into most standard decks. Factory stereo systems have evolved dramatically over the years and can even meet or exceed aftermarket products.
To install a basic car stereo you will need a minimum of tools. First you may need a puller to remove the existing deck (if there is one). Usually it’s just a thin bar that hooks onto the unit to pull it out. Once the unit space is established, you will need crimpers and wire cutters to strip, connect, and crimp the wiring units (to the speakers and to your power source). It’s a good idea to use connectors for the wiring contacts. It is a simple and basic process. In some cases, you might need some additional basic tools like screwdrivers if you are mounting anything or customizing the dash.
With a basic knowledge and minimum of tools, it is not theoretically difficult to install a car stereo. It is even easier is you are replacing the old deck because the wiring for the speakers and the power source are already in place. Most existing units can be pulled easily from the dash and replaced quickly. This of course depends on the sophistication of the system and the skill of the installer. If no modifications are necessary, it is not an overly difficult or complicated process. There are many sources of information and instructional videos available on the internet to guide you.
A subwoofer is a speaker that is designed to produce sounds on the low end of the audio scale. Subwoofers are usually paired with tweeters, speakers that produce sounds on the higher end of the audio scale, to create a balanced sound.
