    You Know Those Uninstall Keys ... ?

    Yeah ... you know them - the little metal dude's that come with your head unit ... has everyone been getting them? Specifically with Alpine units? There's been a few people asking me lately why the haven't recieved their uninstall clips in their box.

    Personally, I think the shop that sold it to them took them out of the box, so they have to pay them to uninstall it ... good way to make money, also a good way to get in a argument and get beat on.

    I know ... I told them to march in there demanding their uninstall clip things ... after all, they did in fact pay for them.

    A lot of the newer hu's from alpine and eclipse don't require the keys to release the jackets. Its simply a levrl ...you just remove the trim and use a small srewdriver to wedge the lever.

    Best Buy just did it to my buddy the other day. I was helping him with a sub install, and he checked his box for his Pioneer HU, and the keys were gone...We went back up to Best Buy, told them what was up and how the keys were missing for a HU he had just purchased not too long ago (showed receipt and everything), and asked for some, since they were supposed to be in there. They gave us a line of bs saying that all they had were OEM keys, since they "never really do work on aftermarket hu's". What a load of crap. So, we went up to Circuit City where my friend works; he couldn't believe what Best Buy did and just gave us two keys. He even confirmed that they have to have the after market keys (as if that wasn't obvious). It was obvious that the guy was lying anyways...There's just something I have never liked about the car audio people at Best Buy. At all....

    I think that CC's car audio dept. has some respectable stuff (i.e. Alpine, etc.)

    I think it's ...

    Best Buy - Power Acoustik, Pioneer, Sony, JVC, Jensen, Kenwood, R/T, Rockford Fosgate, Lightning Audio, Audiovox, and Epik. [JL Audio?]

    vs.

    Circuit City - Profile, Polk Audio, Pioneer, Kenwood, Audiovox, MTX, Bazooka, Sony, Infinity, Alpine, Panasonic, Q-Logic, Aiwa, and Harman Kardon. [Stinger? Lightning Audio?]

    But it's not like I'm ever in there ... :p
