Reading these past reviews makes me scratch my head. Although I called and never got a call back I knew I needed to stop by and ask. Situation was I got a autopage installed back in 2011 before winter. I lost my keys snowboarding at Alyeska the following winter. Well, after putting it off I decided I needed to get my truck back up and running with auto start with the current temps. So I went in and asked what the best approach to getting my system back up. I lost the key box that was a module for the system. The guy told me they have a new system where it c an bypass without a spare key. I was about to head to Ford to make a spare key since I only have one. Being that I need to get one eventually. With all said and done I came out to $300 which was fine with me being that if I would have went with a groupon it was going to be $260 with the place taking out my current system in place. So in the end I guess customer service is all how you take it. I have never had any problems with the autopage system and it is a great tool to have.

Took my truck in for an auto start they were recommend by a friend. The work seems to be good and I have no issues with the install.Their communication skills need work. Talked to a gal over the phone for about 30 min going over everything I wanted and needed due to the make and model of my truck. When I dropped it off they had nothing on file. I was in a hurry when I stopped in thinking that everything was good to go. I got a call an hour later asking about a $75 upgrade to remote lock and unlock my truck. They made it sound in the beginning that I was no longer able to remotely lock and unlock my truck with my key fob. After I had this explained that my key fob still would work I said no. In the end they gave it to me anyways without charge to apologize for their lack of communication and organization with my appointment. The final price is about average for the auto start and install as anywhere else in Anchorage, at $450 for a two-way system. I am happy with the end result.

Ok I got a groupon and made my appointment and for my car I didn't have to pay any additional fees so I'm not sure about the other reviews but I did upgrade to a two way pager system for additional and let me tell you I have no idea how I survived Alaskan winter before! I love this thing! Anyways I thought customer service was good I waited in store so they made sure to get it done quickly. I've even recommended to my neighbor after they saw me start my car :)

I bought a groupon for a remote start but I ended up upgrading for a two way and paid $200 but it was well worth it and I have to say it got me through the brutal winter w/o freezing my behind lol! Staff were very very friendly and helpful...they were extremely busy with all the groupon but they made sure my car was ready for me just in time. Highly recommend!!! Thanks guys!

We have taken two brand new Toyota's to get the auto start installed and have had no problems. The battery on one of the remotes went dead and they were nice enough to replace it at no charge. I have another 2014 Camry and will be taken it there for my auto start. Very nice and helpful.

Every time I have brought my vehicles to Safe and Sound, I have always received outstanding service from both Milo and Chris. Whether it was installing an autostart, or having my windows tinted, this is the only place I trust my vehicles to.

They did a great job and very efficient. It is difficult to speak to someone on the phone. I left messages and had to keep calling them to make sure they got my message. Once I did speak to someone, they were very professional.

The guy handling my purchase and appointment was helpful and professional. He was cool about me swishing a 2 way remote start to just the one way. Definitely will be back later to upgrade to a 2 way

Local business with outstanding service. They always call to confirm prior to completing any work that is going to increase the amount you owe. I would definitely recommend Car Toyz
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.
