My son bought me a new radio for my Saturn Vue from Car Audio Pros USA. It was everything I wanted and I was very pleased with it, except I couldn't see what was on the screen unless I leaned 45 degrees to the right and dropped my head down to waist level! The printout was gray against a black background and sunlight caused it to look completely black. The brightness was already at 100%, so I ran it back in to see if Car Audio could do anything about it. The conversation went like this:Me: I can't see the printout on my radio screen you installed last week.Car Audio: Did you adjust the brightness.Me: Yes. Can you change the color, maybe my old eyes can then see what it is saying.CA: Unfortunately not on that model.Me: Can you put a screen over it.CA: Sorry, we don't carry them. We could put in a different radio that can change colors.(Me - thinking: Of course you can and probably charge me a lot more money)Me: No, I like this radio. Can you put a shade over it?CA: Sorry, we don't carry that item.Me: (Sigh) OK, thanks anyway. (I turned and started to walk away)CA: Where are you going. We haven't finished our conversation.Me: (eyebrows lifted questioningly) You said you couldn't do anything for me.CA: No, I said we didn't carry what you asked for. However, I can get my technical person to look at it and see if there is anything we can do.Me dubiously: Okay, will it take long.CA: No, take a seat in our waiting room.I sat, expecting at least a 30 minute wait, but 5 minutes later the salesperson returned.CA: OK, all done. My tech fixed a shade out of hard cardboard and carpeting, which seems to work. Came check it out.Me. still feeling dubious, suspicious and disbelieving followed him out to my car. Well, I was absolutely flabbergasted. It did the trick, looked very professional and there was no charge. In this throwaway society that seems to care for nothing but money, Car Audio Pros were absolutely great. Fantastic!

well I purchased a pioneer double din for my gmc Sierra I had them install also the stereo is nice I like the features a lot but I was disappointed with Anthony the employee that did the labor him and "flaco" another employee that works there also did the install on my truck well long story short my dash was cracked about 3" when I showed up but half way threw the install I took a peek to see the progress and they cracked my dash even more! disappointed that they didn't want to admit they cracked it they tried to fix it but they didn't want to give me a discount for defacing my property so over all the customer service was bad but installation price and product were over all satisfactory next time I'll make sure to ask them to be extra careful with my property

I have had several experiences thru the years and recently with Car Audio Pros - ALL GOOD! They back up their work and have always made time to address whatever issues I wanted to address from install to repairs to questions. It can be intimidating for us females to walk into a stereo shop alone (or any predominantly male shop) but they make it easy - Always kind and professional and down to earth. Plus my system sounds PHENOMENAL - Will always go here!

Very friendly, knowledgeable staff. I took my 2012 Tundra in with a stereo I bought online. They installed the unit with the XM radio and the steering wheel controls. They did the work quickly and at a reasonable price.I recommend them to any one that needs this type of work done.

The guys at Car Audio Pros ROCK. I got royally screwed at Audio Sounds on Brundage Road and these guys repaired the sloppy work, some of it at no charge. Their work is precise and professional. They are courteous and take pride in their work, and I highly recommend this shop.

I really needed my deck installed and I called around everywhere trying to find the best place. Car audio pros offered the best deal and the customer service was awesome. Definitely worth the drive over here.

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.
