Default Quality car audio install spot?

Whats a good spot around the valley that does quality car audio installs? I already got my woofer, box, amp, deck just need the wiring and I might need new speakers if you guys got any suggestions. My buddy told me about audio express doing $1 installs with a purchase, don't know how quality of an install they do though.

Home of the 1$ wire fire. I personally know 2 kids whos cars went up in flames from having Audio Express install their stuff. Maybe it was just coincidence, but personally, I wouldn't take my car there.

Haha thats what I'd expect with $1 installs, ya i'll prolly need some custom tweeter work done so i'd want to take it to the best possible shop. Someone's got to have a shop in mind?

Also, has anyone experienced any hp loss when adding an aftermarket system sub and all? Other than the weight of the system and draining your electrical components (which could be compensated for, with the big 3 mod)

Look up the Robot Underground on Craigslist. They are a network of installers and wholesalers that apparently do stuff non-profit. I haven't had them do anything yet, but I got some good info from them on some home audio equipment I needed.

no dude, unique can go to hell. they are a huge rip-off. plus, its right next door SDHQ, or *** headquarters. the entire building is ******** except for the car service place on the end.

go rollin' audio if you are in chandler, they are better. the guy is wierd, but he does a good job and doesnt charge some stupid amount, plus he wont take down your address and come break into your car later like Audio Express.

i can vouch for darrell here, he has done a lot of good shiz, and nothing has ever burned down... and like he said, if you're not happy, kick him in the nuts. or dont pay him. either one.
