If you are talking about Tampa, the one to go to is on Dale Mabry near the stadium. Ask for John.

Sound advice is probably the only place in tampa that I will go to for car audio advice.

I"ve been to a couple of local shops, and they all really **** compared to here.

Sensuous Sounds does the best installs in Tampa IMO. But they will rape you on prices. Luckily I know one of the installers so he hooks me up. Sound Advice does do good work, specially the Fowler and Dale Mabry locations

Yup, The one on fowler is good stuff, they have an install shop directly accross from them, decent prefab boxes that if I recall correctly, they make. Last I checked they had some audison in there now to, and kicker subs, and some boston stuff as well.
Sensous sound howerver, thats the shiznit, so long as you have very very very deep pockets. I got to talking with some of the guys there, about what I wanted to do with my system, while I was in picking up some cascade. Great guys, talked with me for a good half hour, and gave me som sweet ideas for my bmw. Got to look at an suv they were doing, man it was crazy. May still be in there, the work they were doing was extensive. Check out the glass case next time you go, right by the car stereo stuff, lotsa old school stuff in there, always neat to look at at least.
I know of only one other place anywhere close by, in Hernando on us 19 by countyline. Its been a while since I went in there, but i know the same guy still owns it, and they did up a car for me once upon a time that I was stupid not to start competing with, it was that good I thought. They did wonderful work. Oh yeah, the name is Audio video specalists. They do home stereo as well.

+1 to Sensous. Known to be the best shop in Tampa. On a better budget though, AVE Audio in clearwater is where its at.

Yea Sensuous Sounds knows their sh*t. If anyone goes there ask for jason, short bald guy.


Edit: My boy Jason just quit Sensuous Sounds. But if anyone still wants the same exact quality of workmanship he's opening his own shop. Just call his cell and leave a message (813) 843-1149.

Update. John, who I recommended above, is no longer with the SA on Dale Mabry. But their other installer, Rick, is also good.

Yup, that was the one, had the amps mounted down the middle, into the back seat. Looked amazing, I'd hate to be hit with the bill tho, I can only IMAGINE what it must be in, if its any less than 5 figures I'd be suprised.

Try $40,000 for that set-up. Get this, the owner bought the truck almost new at an auction in Texas for $30,000. Then dropped 40K on the stereo and sold the truck for $100,000. That's $30,000 in his pocket.

sound advice doesnt make prefab, they sale boxes they make to the specs of subs. very good equipment and VERY good installs.

Holy crap thats some cheese to drop on a system. Pretty sweet that he turned over 30g in profit tho, not a bad result all in all......

Nope, the John I was referring to is no longer with SA. He had an eclipse, not sure what he drives now.
