Default Looking for a good stereo install shop, North/Northwest side of Houston

Looking at getting a stereo installed into the FXT...would prefer someone who's worked with Subies before and knows something about retaining the factory sub. Anyone have any suggestions/buddies on the north/northwest side?

I would reccomend American Audio I think they're off Belair which isn't realy north side i suppose but the guy i spoke to was Kevin and he said they had done some subaru installs and he was really cool...I bought my first sub/amp setup from them a while back...

I don't know how you can get the factory sub to work... it's a subaru specific harness, and unless somebody makes a harness that will include the stereo and sub harness it probably won't work...

one reason I still have the stocker in there...

Maybe it can be spliced in?

Dave, can you retain the factory sub w/ an aftermarket headunit?

If so, I might have to start considering something new...
