Whatever you do, take your smartphone with you to this place! NOTHING here has a price on it? Why, so they can sell it to you for whatever looks like you can afford! They sold me 2 pair of JVC speakers for my truck and charged me $117.00 a pair. Got home and checked amazons price- $37.00! They are also NOT an authorized reseller of any reputable car stereo companies. Most of their stuff is off name stuff with a few common items that you would have heard of. A pair of subs he wanted to sell me for $220.00 each. Amazon- $80.00! They DO NOT give you a receipt!!!! He told me they would e-mail it to me, never got anything. Buyer Beware!!!!

Audio Expert & Custom Auto Body, Inc.
What an outstanding experience we had for the second time this year with Custom Auto Body! Both times we received surprises when we picked up the car...audio experts went above and beyond to please us with additional fixes that they didn't charge us for! The jobs were very well done, both in a timely manner and both times audio experts and the staff were happy to accommodate our delivery and pick up schedule. There is no question as to who we will use again and again for all eleven of our cars!!! Even my dads1971 BMW 2002 will get the major restoration paint job that he has waited 25 years to have done!!!!

Travis and his staff have installed sound systems in all 3 of our vehicles and they all sound great. After each install, Johnny made sure we had the basics covered. If we had any problems, we were encouraged to bring them back and they made sure we understood how to use the sound systems before we left. The crew at Car Audio Heaven are knowledgeable, professional and a real pleasure to do business with. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a good car stereo, good install and great customer service before AND after the sale.

These guys are really on the ball! I had them install 2 flip down monitors in my car and they were able to hook it up to a portable dvd player that I already had. My kids were able to hook up their Xbox to it which keeps them occupied during road trips. They kept costs low compared to a few other local places that I looked at. I'd definitely recommend checking them out.

Brought my Jeep in with a fried alarm system from last weeks rainstorm. They were able to isolate and fix the problem on the spot with no issues and had me on my way in less than 10 minutes. This place is extremely friendly and helpful, and I am happy with my decision bringing my car in to this small business.

Everyone I spoke to, really had a large amount of product knowledge and took the time to break down the difference in the products I was looking for, the positive and the negative in each.

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.
