Stereo Zone Car Audio has made my experience of shopping in Pleasant Grove surprisingly pleasant. I had been very apprehensive about venturing into and area of town where I have heard is a bit scary. However Rick's professionalism and the staff's courteous professionalism has changed my mind about the area and the typical guys who work on cars. Ladies, you will feel respected, no worries about leering stares, etc. Also you will not feel talked down to, I felt like they explained everything to my level of understanding without being patronizing. I would recommend this place to my friends and family. .
Rick & the sales staff were non-hesitant in approaching me for assistance, they created a no hassle environment and we're informative in helping me make my decisions. The install team were courteous and really took special attention to detail throughout the install process making for a clean install with 0 defects to exterior and interior aesthetics of my vehicle. I would highly recommend this audio shop for any install small or large as they ensure their clients walk away satisfied and prospects for future business. Thank you for your business, From, a satisfied client.
Can't say enough good things about Rick and his team. Extraordinarily professional from start to finish, gave me a screaming deal on a new stereo/backup camera. Installation was professional in every respect, this thing looks like it was factory-installed! They let me watch the install so I knew where and how everything was wired since I wouldn't be able to bring it back if anything happened (although they guarantee their install for life). I love that they didn't try to up-sell me and even told me not to buy a more expensive stereo because it wouldn't suit my needs. Gave me a loaner car to get stuff done while I was waiting on the install. Really impressed that he kept his shop open late because I had to drive back to Denver the next day too. These guys go above and beyond in every respect, thanks a lot!
I want to take some time to say a BIG THANK YOU to them for working on my car.The work they did is amazing they made a mistake by giving the wrong quote for not including the a $150 module but end up giving to me for free i felt so bad that i offered more money but they declined.I am very happy with the work they did the sound is amazing and there are no scratches on t the dashboard. If you need audio work done on your car ,do yourself a favor and go the BEST which is STERO ZONE OTHERWISE YOU WILL WASTE YOUR MONEY. I will definitely go back to them for my car alarm. Thanks a lot !!!!!!Keep up the good work
I had purchased an aftermarket subwoofer months ago and was waiting forever to get installed. I called several shops to grab quotes and these people were the most cost efficient. I decided to give this business a try. I called back to see if they could get it done today and they were able to squeeze me in on their busiest day. I dropped my vehicle off and the guys were able to get everything hooked up in 2 hours. I'll definitely be going back to have them install my HID's. Everything done under $100 bucks for my installation. Not bad if you ask me
Looking for a good double din? What should you look for? Will you pay too much?
What should you look for?
Needless to say that there are many options when buying a Double Din Touch Screen Car Stereo but, not all stereos are created equal. Of course I recommend you stick to a name brand stereo like Pioneer, Kenwood, Alpine, Sony or something along those lines. One of the biggest reasons for buying a name brand is because for the most part it will do what its supposed too, what do I mean? Well If you do a small search on Google or eBay you will see that there are many options including some off brands that are very cheap and promises to do a lot for you such as, USB, Nav,Bluetooth, AUX among other things, for a very low price, much lower than your traditional name brand Double Din Touch Screen Car Stereo. The Problem starts after the install and you try to use your new stereo, some of the problems I've personally seen in these stereos right off the box are, USB won't read , SD card will only show a few files not all, Bluetooth cuts in and out among others.
Yes the price looks good but trust me when I say its not worth the time and headache they will cause you. When choosing your new double din touchscreen car stereo make sure that its gonna meet your needs for example, do you want a stereo with only an AUX or would you like to have Bluetooth as well? Would you like to have a DVD player or just a normal car stereo? Do you want your stereo to have the USB in the front or would you like to have it installed in different location? Most new Double Din Touch Screen Car Stereo will have the AUX in the rear so make sure that you tell your installer to run the AUX wire and specify were you would like to hove it installed. Things like these are the questions you should have answered before going in to your neighborhood stereo shop.
Will you pay too much?
Knowing how much to pay for the car stereo you want is obviously one of the most important things to most of us. With cash not easy to come by then before its important that you get the most you passably can for that cash you're about to spend. For me to buy something in a brick and mortar store I have to do some Online price checking first, like most of do now a days anyway right?
When it comes to car audio its important to give value to the service and warranty you are gonna get in the store vs the internet, let me explain.
Of course most of us wouldn't buy something anywhere if it didn't have a warranty, unless of course the price was so low it didn't matter but for the most part we want warranty whether its from the internet or a local store. But even if you have warranty from the internet, if anything where to happen to your new stereo you would have to send it back witch means, that you would be with out your new stereo until you got one back. If you got your new stereo from your local store like Stereo Zone then you could just drive in and leave with a new stereo the same day.
Now if you buy a car stereo online for $80 bucks and got free shipping and saw the same car stereo in a local store for $120.00 and they both offer a one year warranty you would think you are getting a better deal buying your new double din from the internet right. Lets look again, when you get the car stereo from the internet you are still gonna need to install it now unless you are handy and know how to take your car apart, you're gonna wanna take your car in to your local stereo shop, normally labor to install a car stereo is gonna be between $35 to $50 depending on your area so now that puts your new stereo at around $145.00. If you look and call around you will fins that some of your local stereo shops like Stereo Zone offer free install on anything bought in the store so that means you would be better off buying in your local store.
If you wish to upgrade your car stereo then you need to consider a few factors;
Go for a Cd changer.
If you have an excellent head then it will do more than just tune in radio stations- it will support multiple tracks at a go. This means that, if have to listen to multiple tracks in your car especially from different artists and genres then you don’t have to always change the disk. The solution is to have an impressive head that comes with a separate Cd changer that can hold multiple discs at once. This is a worthwhile investment if you come to think of it.
Up the volume with some amps
To maximize your car audio system, it’s important to upgrade your sound without having to distort the sound system already in place. While some drivers might choose to cut on cost and install additional speakers, the amps act as real muscles to the cars audio system. The choice of amps can be a tricky affair, and it’s advisable to go for good brands such as Kenwood or JL Audio.
Consider the speaker arrangements
The choice of speaker arrangement is an important aspect when it comes to upgrading of your car stereo system. If you decide to install a 15’’ subwoofer in a poor location, then it will not work to its full capacity. It will not produce the true bass required and hence fall short of your expectations. A well trained and professional engineer will tell you that a good car audio system needs to be well-thought-out and arranged with utmost care to provide the expected clarity.
Choose the right car stereo installation in Huston.
Choosing the right car stereo service ensures that you get the best bargain on quality stereo systems available in the market. They will also help you fit an audio surround system that will provide an exemplary audio experience. What’s more, you will be taken through the different options available enabling you to find the right car system. They will help you identify which configuration works for your needs that include an interior modification to achieve the best results. Regardless of whether you are driving a vintage car, jeep, Ferrari, Chevrolet or Lexus they will take your audio experience to a whole new level.
The audio sources.
Before settling on which car stereo system to use, it’s important that you evaluate the audio sources you always play with. You should assess whether you need a CD player, if you will use a DVD playback when parked or you have ditched discs instead of digital media. The choice you settle for will depend on whether you will go for a large A/V receiver or a traditional CD-receiver. For those who keep a CD book on their car, it’s equally important to have a receiver that has a USB, MP3 or WMA playback. This is because you may want to plug a phone or media player at some point.
App and smartphone integration.
With the advancements in technology, it’s now much easier to have your smartphone in the pocket and play music on your stereo. While other smartphones such as iPhones use a badge to locate media device others such as Windows phone, Android and Blackberry picks up a receiver that uses A2DP stereo Bluetooth audio streaming for wireless media playback. If you are using heavy streaming apps such as Pandora or iHeat Radio, then it will force you to identify receivers that have controls for such applications.
Local and satellite stations.
Every car audio receiver developed today features an Am and FM radio that tunes on to the local stations, but this can also change. Some receivers come with an in-built HD radio decoding that will improve your audio quality through broadcast in digital quality. Aside from that, you’ll get access to subprograms for stations that support multicast that increases the amount of free programming. For the few new car stereos that can support satellite radio, they do so using an optional SXV200 Sirius XM or SXV100 connection module. If you opt for this option, then you might be required to purchase additional equipment as well as pay an annual subscription fee.
GPS and NAVIGATION.
There is more to a GPS system than just playing your music. Car stereos are now integrated with GPS navigation system that will help you get where you are going. You can also get all your traffic reporting through the RDS-TMC band or the HD Radio tuner.
Aside from the audio sources, the central idea behind the receiver is the correlation between the internal amplifier and car speakers. The amplifiers power can be measured in two ways which include; RMS and peak power. Peak power is measured in watts and is usually the maximum amount of power that the amplifier is capable of producing.
Distinguish between the physical dimensions and physical controls.
When choosing the type of receiver it’s important to determine the physical dimensions and interface of the receiver. This would mean deciding on whether you would go for a Single-DIN or a double-DIN-receiver. Single-DIN occupies less space in the dashboard, are less apparent to outside viewers. The double-DIN, on the other hand, is often large and would take up most of space in the dashboard. It also features a touch sensitive display. If you are the kind of person that is into app mirroring, GPS navigation and DVD Playback then you will definably want to have this stereo with you.
Passive car alarms.
A passive alarm sets itself automatically when the ignition is turned off, and the door closes. It's referred to as a passive alarm since you don’t have to manually active- in fact; all that is needed is for you to manually turn off your car off. The good thing is that most of the good new cars on the market today come equipped with passive alarms. It’s advantageous because it’s convenient, reliable and works on its own. All of these features make it hard to forge or activate. On the downside, it cannot be controlled once the alarm is set. If you forgot your keys inside the car, it might make things a little bit harder to you. A well-equipped passive car alarm comes with security measures which prevent such inconveniences.
Active car alarms
When it comes to active car alarms, they need to be manually activated to work. This is done using a remote that is attached to the key ring. Once you stop the engine, leave the car and close the doors you can press the button on the remote to activate the alarm. There are some which requires you to manually lock the door while in others you can lock the door when they are activated. In terms of cost, active alarms tend to be cost effective and easier to install as compared to the passive alarm system. This makes the active alarms less secure since it’s easier not to activate them, and they are also vulnerable to damage and malfunction. However, if you choose the right brand and quality, then you won’t end up having serious issues.
Bottom line, whether you opt for a passive or active car installation system, it’s important to pick a high-quality product and have it fitted in the right way. Having a car alarm that is not well equipped can make you suffer from constant malfunctions. This narrows down to the type of car installer expert you are dealing with. Working with an expert will help you choose the right alarm for your car regardless of whether it’s a Ferrari, Toyota or vintage collection models.
