I know the one in bedford does good work. They are pricy though.

Sorry I cant help you more.

Pricey THEY ARE, but I'm happy with the work they did.

07-25-2006, 05:41 PM
Do these guys have a web site?

Been in here a couple times. First time I went in asking about possibly having some Infinity Kappa Perfects installed(went with different speaker for fitment reasons) and they actually told me that they would be junk compared to what they install, and tried selling some other speakers, even though I had only asked the price to have some speakers I bring in installed. All that I have heard is that this place does great work, though they are pricey as well. Though they assured me that they will personally back the warranty on anything they sell/install.

Never had any work done there though, mostly because of price.

a few reasons why i will never do business with them again,

put a JL 500/1 on law-away or whatever, and needed to take it off, i totally understand a "restocking fee" even though they never took if off the shelf or anything, but then they tried to charge me tax on their restocking fee, as well as my refund. so i paid X amount to put it on layaway, it cost me 15% of X to take it off, no problem, but then they tried to charge me tax on that 15% and also tax me for the money they were giving me back... which made no god **** sense.

also, they told me that a Solo-barics are crappy becuse they are square, and sound waves are circular, so it wont make a good sub... i laughed and left the shop.

maybe if they would put more knowledgeable people in there instead of 80 freakin trophies i would try it again.

The problem with arlington, tx is taht there arent any great shops, Mobile sound arent very helpful unless you are buying a ton of stuff, and autosound, well you know what i think of them.

Next year theres a new shop opening up, the owner is a friend of mine, sounds like it will be nice.

Where will the new shop going to be located at? What kind of equipment do you think he'll be carrying. There really isn't any good shops in Arlington, TX.

Got a radio installed a couple of weeks ago. They do killer work.

They bad mouthed my setup. Said a ported box for two 10s in a single cab truck was impossible(and would sound like ***) and then claimed my amps were not putting out what they are capeable of. My amps are 800watts at 2 ohms, not 500 if im lucky at 2 ohms. Didnt even bother looking up my amp model to see who was correct.

They forced their products on me a little too much. I walked in, played dumb, and would of walked out raped in the wallet if I were to get anything done.

Had a few friends get some stuff done there and they have no complaints!

Ok guys im the install Manager of Auto Sound Arlington, just to clerify something.

Everyone on here knows you can find car audio cheap.. hell thats how i got into doing this **** in the first place (but i also know from experience .. you get what you pay for) We arnt over priced we just adhere to the sales pricing of our equipment (we have an MSRP) that we have to follow.. unlike alot of other stores. And as for (we pushed our equipment on to a pearson) Maybe.. but i dont see that as a bad thing... we are here to make money too, But we dont say something just to get your money, if we see we can make a better system thats what were gonna do. If you think your being overpriced, then shop around and come in and let use know you found it cheaper... we'll work with you (just bring a card with the product and price signed by the sales person)

Ported box in a single cab truck... why the hell not ... but im sure the sales person was trying to tell you that your gonna hear the port noise... but hey.. its alll about what you like

Ok... the tax ****... i have know idea what thats about but it sounds a little weird to me too... either you dont know what your talking about.. or the sales person was on a different planet.. who knows.. policy reads on the sign.. (all lay-ways must be paid in full in 90 days . No refunds or exchanges :rolleyes: so what you mean we gave your money back....And a soloBeric sub... awsome SPL sub...If your a basshead.. which some of us are.. But what was said is true.. lol.. and do you think the 64 trophies... 12 world finals and numerious best of shows trophies means we got an idiot running the show....sad sad day.. and good luck with your friends shop.

Sorry if this sounds like a mad angry man :) .. If you want to see what we do on a daily basis, stop by and just ask to see why we are still here, 20 some odd years doing what ALOT of people want to do... but better :)

Thanks LOW S-10 for letting me use this acount :)

I have to give my 2 cents on this! I have been up there many times and they do bad mouth a lot of setups. They love JL subs and Alpine headunits. I've listened to some of there cars and was only impressed with one. They do very go work, but should not talk so bad about other peoples equipment. Those trophies mean nothing unless you are wanting them to install a competition system. I've been installing car audio for a long time and do not care to do it for a living. So it's funny as hell to me when they tell me that they can build a box better than me or that my amp is not putting out the right power. They also have told me that Focal access is not a good speaker and Kicker amps aren't that good. Notice how they don't mention when they lose, what the guys were running that they lost to.

They had a competition up there in their own parking lot a while back. All that stuff they love so much was loosing. It was a guy up there with 2 vehicles with Audiobahn and Visonik in both and those guys with their 13W7's and 1000/1's weren't even coming close on the meter. The Jl also lost to a Stroker, 2 12L7's in a hatchback, and some guy with 6 RF 12" HE 1 or 2's in a mini truck. They are pricey and JL is very over priced and yes I can afford JL. I got 4 12CVR's for $280 from a authorized dealer and they will destroy 1 12W6v2 that cost more money. So can you explain why people say you get what you pay for? I could have got they same subs from Circuit City for $600, but why get my wallet raped? I'm sure one of them will say I'm not telling the truth, but what do I have to gain by making this up? This is coming from someone that has ran RE audio, Ascendant, Kicker, Rockford, MTX, Mb Quart, Boston Acoustic, Phoenix Gold, Memphis and DD audio just to name a few.

I spoke to a "Val" on the phone today and he was very courteous and very informative. He didn't push anything on me and didn't trash on my current system.

Just gave me the facts....I did some research on the info and it all came out clean.

I need a box built for a 12" JLW6 and I may just go there......if the price is right.

I live in Cedar Hill btw.

Val has been in the business a LONG time. He used to be at the Autosound over off of Hulen. Good guy.

I used to work for Val back when the shop was owned by a guy named Dan, who also owns the one in lewisville and denton. If anyone has any questions about how things are done there or about val as an installer I will be happy to help.
