Located near the clearview shopping center on veterans hwy. My lady friend with benefits went in to get a replacement sub that was blown during installation at mobile1 - what kinda shiit is that?? Tunes sold her a JL 10w3v3-2 for $100 with a lifetime warranty. The guy was so nice he took her old sub out the box and put the new one in. He also disposed of the old sub and then proceeded to give her his phone number. Very nice people at tunes. Only place I'd recommend for car audio in the new orleans and surrounding area.


be sure to stay away from MobileOne, kids that work their don't know the difference between ohms and hertz. Seriously, I asked.

Would this place install an amp for me if I didnt buy it from them?

The shop I work at installs any amp, wether you buy it there or not... so I dont see why they wouldnt. Of course, theyre gonna charge you a fee to do it, but thats kinda a given. What kinda amp?

Its across the lake in slidell.. Its called T.O.S. Enterprises (thunder of slidell).

Well I sent an email to Tunes asking if they install amps that they didnt sell, and whether or not I could supply the amp kit. If they won't install it then I'd be driving to slidell, phantom.

And by the way, how much would you think it would cost to install the amp with or without bringing my own amp kit? I want to see if TOS has a much better deal.

Bringing your own amp kit wont cost extra, but if you need one, they have some there that will be tacked on to the install price. My boss says that installing an amp will run ya about $35. I personally dont work in the bay, but in out other store where we do retail. Our store got flooded so I work in the mall location and the install bay is just a little bit away.

This weekend I built a box for my new 15" Fi SSD and today I went looking for a speaker terminal, 12gauge wire, and conenctors to connect wire and terminal. I went to Radioshack(lol), Bestbuy(rotfl), and CircuitCity(****!) No one knew the difference between a speaker terminal cup and a **** wiring harness for a head unit. I asked to see their speaker wire and they showed me a rinky dink amp kit, probably 10gauge.

I would be more than happy to drive across the lake if that meant an encounter with someone who actually knew a thing or two about car audio. I have an amp and a 15" sub that I still need to wire in the box I built that I need to have installed. The only thing I'm missing is an amp kit, but I'd rather buy a decent one from Knukonceptz than pay some mobil one douche twice as much to use one of their own.

So, Phantom, what is T.O.S. like? What would that install cost me?

JeffreyG
03-18-2007, 03:35 PM
^^^ ok, I got it. you must have posted as I was typing.
Well I'll decide after I wire the sub where I'll go, and if Tunes will do the install. I may come by Slidell.

phantom240
03-18-2007, 04:19 PM
I know our 0awg kit is like $70... I think all in all with amp wires, kit, mounting the sub and hooking it up youre looking at about $100-$125

JeffreyG
03-18-2007, 04:52 PM
what if I used your 4gauge amp kit, if you sell them, and the sub was already mounted in the box, just needed to be hooked to the amp?

So are you trying to imply that a sober person would actually make an effort to boink your girl? I don't believe it for a second.

I hate mobile one. LMAO. I really do. The sales kids know absolutely NOTHING. They just try to push everything expensive.


Walk in and say you're on a budget, they still push JL-W7s.

I built a box for 1 15" this weekend. 4cubes @ 33hz. Took a couple good hours work and the tools used for all pretty basic.

And I'm awaiting a reply from Tunes. I want to go check them out next week once I have the sub wired in the box.

If I have the amp installed, the rest should be a piece of cake right? Just run speaker wire from amp to terminal on box, right?

as far as the physical aspect i can probably do that, but I don't know how to use the programs that help you calculate ports and the other stuff. I pretty much need help with the design.

JeffreyG
03-25-2007, 02:01 PM
I got no email response from Tunes and I called today but no answer. I'm sure they must be closed today, it is Sunday. I have the box complete with sub wired in and now I need that amp installed.

I'm going to call tomorrow morning and see whens the soonest they can get me in.

Its killing me looking at this beast in the back but not having it powered up.:crying:

Have they moved to their new location yet? You best bet may be to just go there. But only during the week.

I just got my sub & amp installed at Tunes and I'm noticing a crackling noise coming from the tweeter on the dash of my Jeep GC. I've had a blow tweeter before but it was different. This noise doesn't go away when I fade/balance to other speakers and it doesnt go away when the volume is at 0.

The install was good, the sub sounds great, and they even have the bass knob mounted flush on the center compartment. The only thing I can think of is that they hit the speaker wire when installing the amp to the HU or something. Any suggestions as to what happened?

JeffreyG
03-31-2007, 10:38 AM
Just to clear things up. The problem was the ground and/or speaker wire came loose on the Head Unit, mainly due to my own ****** install, not necessarily Tunes' fault. I fixed it in like 30 seconds.

TUNES Review:
Quick & Easy
Brought it in out of the blue and got it back within a couple hours.
Good, clean install. no loose or visible wires
GOOD job with the bass knob, its my favorite part. They cut a hole in the center compartment (Between driver and passenger seats, to store crap in) and the have the knob mounted flush right there. I'm not sure how they did it, theres no signs of the wire anywhere. Godd Job.
Amp mounted good on the backseat like I asked.
Had everything set up and ready for me to bump

I've been meaning to figure out how to work a digital camera, pics will be in the works.

it looks like a 15" SSD in a black gloss painted box, 4cuft @ 33hz in ther back of a black Jeep. Black on Black on Black basically.:fro:

It wangs my brains out at half gain on amp and 0 bass boost on the knob:eek:

They moved from the little shop on Vets to a larger one on one of the streets behind it. I don't remember which street, but I think it's the same street as Terry's Mufflers.

I have an existing install that I did personally when I had my 2 channel amp. Now I have a mono amp and it doesnt work. Would Tunes rerun the entire car if I had a kit and if so, how much?

There's a JL kit for $30 shipped off eBays

I am just not convinced I received a deaf amp... heh

Ghee, that sounds really racist b/c the guy that actually is Vietnamese. the shop you're refering to on Causeway is Prestige which is owned by a white guy, Cory, who has prices higher than giraffe *****. why no check out Wesley at Anything Car Audio and Perfomance on Delaware behind the Long John Silver's on Williams, dude does awesome glass work plus he'll show you some of his work if you ask.

any of you locals go to the bonnabel boat launch or the camaro firebird meets on the weekends?

if you see a blue, black, or red thunderbird sc its mine, could be either me or my brother driving. The blue one is mean, you can't miss it.

Tunes is no longer in business.. If your looking for Jeff(Sales) and Steve(Installer) they are out in kenner now with their own shop (Advanced Audio).
