Car Tunes
This is by far the best car electronics shop that I have been to. There are many to choose from and I have been to various ones in the past and from now on this is the only place that I will take my cars to. The guys that run this place are extremely knowledgeable and honest. I just had a remote start system installed on a new car we bought. Car tunes installation was perfect, they explained what they will do, did it right the first time and took their time to show us exactly how it works. Before stopping at this shop other places said that it can't be done on the car we have or they can "try" and it will cost us $800. Car Tunes got this done without any hesitation for under $500. Awesome place. Highly recommend.

Audio Express
I have been in to Car Toys 3 times to get a new stereo with blue tooth for my 2008 Toyota Tacoma Crew Cab TRD Off-road. First of all parts were not in-stock, and I just wasn't feeling it. Then I went to Audio Express. They were patient, knowledgeable, and actually showed me what I wanted. Plus they had it ALL in stock. Installed in 1.5 hours, and I am happier, safer, and looking forward to going back to get a back up camera installed.The only surprise was to find that it was a large company (with the security that comes with an established business), the service truly felt like they cared, like a mom-and-pop store

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.
