Just had a remote start installed in my car and my wife's car. They got me in the same day and did a great job and cost much less than expected. It was an early Christmas gift for my wife. When I started her car from the remote she was shocked! She didn't even know you could have that done, but absolutely loves it! I have to park my car outside and it's nice to warm it up before I have to get in it. Thanks guys, I will definitely come back!

Thanks guys at Audio-Fx! Had a new stereo system and alarm put in my car recently. I am very particular about my car and these guys did a clean job. I love the new sound in my car and I can control my car alarm from my phone. I will definitely go back to these guys!

I have taken two cars to these guys for audio installs and have nothing but great things to say about the experience. They will listen to what you actually want and customize it as much as they can so that the end result is something you are actually pleased with. Give these guys a call for great service on any car audio install

These guys did a great job on my system. They put in a Sony deck for me and even installed it the same day. I had some trouble connecting my bluetooth and they took the time to help me. I will definitely go back again!

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.
